Friends which is better option between wifi dongle and broadband? usage will be less than 20gb per month. speed required is just so that videos do not buffer. inclined towards dongle as it can be kept anywhere.

do jio, chortel etc. provide special plans for dongle if their dongle is bought? like jio has max 12gb plan for sims, is the same plan applicable for dongle? please guide.

2000 security+1000 installation charges in our area. also plans are expensive, that much speed and data is not required

Bsnl fibre all round winner and superb service. Sometime they inject adds for their own services  

Jio fibre ok but not for gaming , horrible ping issues and random horny sites blocked .Also Jio does deep packet inspection and shares same ip to multiple users, not to mention their cow dung customer support 

Local tv wala fibre cheap but faces downtime (depends on location)

Ignore dongle

I would only advice to use WiFi dongle aka WINGLE as you have the option to change sim card anytime. With broadband who will first disconnect one and go for another. Installation hassles.

Check speed of every operator in ur area. Then choose the one which remains good between 8 AM – 10 PM. Get an unlocked wingle but Band 1 / Band 41 support wingles are very less. Mostly they support Band 3/5/40 and some 1/3/40.

Bsnl fibre and Bsnl broadband are diff 

While the former is outsourced hence better support the later uses 3rd grade bsnl staff 

Check in your area

Still this would be the cheapest and best option(futureProof); dongles will prove costly also some disturbances if u keep 24×7 on after a while they give up, also auto-switch issue when powers goes off
BSNL once started working will need very very less support, but there are occasional speed/downtime issues, like any other ISP
Unless u are in rented house and may change place BB is best choice

Jio/Airtel does not have standalone data only plans. you need a base plan in addition to the data plan. So overall cost will be higher.

Only Vi has standalone data only plan that works without any base plan. Vi also has unused data rollover if you recharge within original validity. You can use 118 plan for 12GB – 28 days or 418 plan for 100GB- 56 days.

If you intend to use 24/7, better to opt for a powered desktop sim based router than a dongle.

suppose jio speed is sufficient then which dongle will you advice? do they have separate plans for sim to be used in dongle?

If you have unlocked dongle, you can use normal sim and plans. Jio separate plans are for JioFi. When you use a unlocked/open dongle it is just like using sim card in a phone without screen.

check with ur area people about fibre.. then decide.  dongles are good , and has flexibility, but now a days no one is giving good speed.
