Why Everyone Is Around 1GBPS When Reality Is Something Is Different.
Homes Users Are Happy With 50-80MBPS Unlimited Plan @ 699 Or Less If Possible.
Let Companies And Others Need Such Super Fast Data Speed.

I am currently on 16mbps 899 rupees plan with additional 200 rupees discount every month (special offer because I was about to shift to Jio). So totally I have to pay 699 every month. Now I want better speed (maybe 100mbps).

An engineer told me that since you are already on retention plan, if you migrate to higher speed plan, you will lose retention discount. So what should I do? Shift to normal 100mbps retail plan or is there a way out?

Been using Airtel broadband for more than 6 years now and their service is excellent, out of the 6 years of usage the network was down for hardly 10 days overall at max.

The speed has been consistent as well as promised. The maximum line speed depends on the limitation in the locality. In my area the maximum speed was 16mbps until 2 years ago but has been upgraded later so until 2 years ago even if I were to opt for 40mbps or 100mbps plan the line speed would still be limited to 16mbps only.

I currently pay Rs. 699 + taxes for 40mbps unlimited plan (no FUP at all) plus a landline with free unlimited calls. Will never even consider Jio at their current pricing, Airtel seems to be lot cheaper and proven for consistency.

As far as service support goes, I never had any issue with that either, most times they do honour their commitments and complete the service request on time.

The plan I am talking about isn’t something exclusive for me, it’s a general plan offered by Airtel here in Hyderabad. They face still competition from ACT so they had to come up with such competitive plans to counter them. Select Hyderabad as city on Airtel’s website to get plan details.

It’s not 1 GBps bro , it’s 1 Gbps.
There is a lot of difference infact 8 times .
1GBps means 1 gigaBYTE per second.
1 Gbps means 1 gigaBIT per second.
And 1 byte equals 8 bits. Hence 1 GBps is 8 times faster than 1 Gbps.
In other words 1 Gbps is 128 MBps.
So pay attention to the B if it’s capital or not.

It’s not unlimited. It has a FUP of 3333 GB per month. Post FUP, the speed is 8 Mbps.

If you are using old ADSL line speed can’t go beyond that. Need to switch over to Fiber to avail higher speeds.

Unless the math behind calculating the bandwidth for a 4K video changes or the scientific definition for bits and bytes change it is not technically feasible to stream a 4K video at 30 frames per second.

You at least need 18mbps (17.2mbps to be precise) connection for that, assuming you get a 100% promised speed. In India the operators assure 80% speed.

You can check these to know how to calculate:
https://www.extron.com/product/videotool...px
https://gobrolly.com/amount-data-bandwidth-requ...

The only way you are still able to stream 4K video on 5mbps is that you are actually not streaming 4k video or your broadband provider is offering you a better speed even though your plan says 5mbps

How do I do this ? I am stuck at 799 + tax for 40 Mbps. Shall I call them and say I am moving to Jio? Also I have already paid for 6 months. Thanks in advance.

You still don’t get it!

Let me break down the math for you.

The bit rate for streaming a 4K video goes to a worse of 8000 kbps to a best of 16000 kbps and is maintained at around 14000 to be called a good 4K steam.

Considering the average of 14000 kbps it means you need to have a broadband line speed of at least 14 Mbps, even in worst case scenario of 8000 kbps you need to have a broadband line speed of 8Mbps to stream without buffering pauses.

It doesn’t depend on what google or amazon or what ever website support is over here, we are talking about limitation of your line speed and not the website capability.
