Thinking to opt for Airtel Fiber. I never used JioFiber or Airtel Fiber. But looking at the reviews I found Airtel might have been little better in terms of service and consistency. I have Tata Sky but looking at the bundle offer it seems like opting for combo plan can be better.

But the Airtel guy cannot tell me what are 350+ channels. Are those really useful ? Say for instance my family watches bengali language based channels and news most of the time and I need to know those channels included or not. I am paying ~ Rs.250 per month in Tata Sky and thought spending Rs.100 more would save more from that.

Any idea or suggestions ? I thinking for Rs.899 plan if I need DTH , else I would go for Rs.799.

Getting a clarity on those 350+ channels would be a real task. Thankfully for me, I don't watch TV at all so I skipped it when I bought the fiber last year. And since you're new to this, I wanted to tell you that Airtel offers additional 15% discount if you pay for 6 months or higher in one go. So, the 499 plan for 6 months after 18% GST and then 15% discount comes down to ₹3,003 which eventually translates to ₹500 per month. I hope this works if you opt for Fiber+DTH too.

I am seeing Airtel wants ₹3300 upfront for free installation. And you would get bill once ₹3300 is over.

Do you know if I can get 15% discount at the time of entry i.e. taking the connection?

Whenever I select VIEW PLANS under BROADBAND on their website, instead of actually listing the plans, they're asking for my contact details and the installation address. I think that they might've changed something, so you need to either confirm with the customer care or with the agent before paying for the installation.

Yeah I thought of that too when i took their fibre connection. My requirement was same as yours, all Bengali channels. But even after meticulously checking the 350 plan I was unsure. Few channels like Star Jalsha and some other were not available. Don't bother. It's never simple with airtel. Cunning company.

Damage has been done.

The Airtel representative told me Zee Bangla and Star Jalsha is inlcuded in the package. 

I asked him again and again if he can confirm this aspect, he assured me yes.

Now I can see I have been conned. Paid the amount and installation is in progress.

Pathetic service. When I booked they told me it would be installed on the day only.

2nd day the broadband installation guy shows up and says sales guys say anything. Don't take them seriously.

Not sure when they would install DTH and I don't any point of contact. Frustrating.
