Soon after the recent launch of affordable Jio Fiber plans, Airtel Xstream Fiber came up with its revamped plans. Both the companies are offering unlimited broadband internet plans and limitless calling in the similar price range. Take a note that unlimited internet here means 3300 GB of maximum data usage per month as per the commercial usage policy. Airtel Xstream Fiber provides automatically adjustable upload & download speeds whereas Jio Fiber gives symmetrical speeds. Thus, both work on a different mechanism. They also provide you with a 4K set top box, wifi router, and a voice controlled remote. Now, let's compare their plan offerings to check out on who emerges as the winner.

The monthly plan 1 is the minimum or lowest recharge plan for both Airtel Xstream Fibre and Jio Fibre. In this plan, Airtel charges Rs 100 more than Jio but gives free access to many OTT apps. Moreover, it provides an additional 10 Mbps of speed. Therefore, Airtel Xstream Fiber undoubtedly emerges as the winner for this plan.

The monthly plan 2 is a leveller because both the broadband players are providing similar cost services. In Airtel, you pay a hundred more per month for the premium Airtel Xstream OTT app services which can be avoided if you don’t prefer them.

Both Airtel and Jio costs the same in this monthly plan 3, but differs in speed and OTT subscriptions. If 50 Mbps more speed is essential for you due to a large family or more devices then Airtel Xstream Fiber is suitable. Otherwise, Jio Fiber is a front runner with free access to many top OTT platforms which costs you a bomb. Here, Jio Recharge Coupons can help you save more on your monthly plans.

Jio fiber is mainly targetting the areas where there are no established services. (Mainly towns, city outskirts)

You won’t get any channels. Channels are going to disappear. You will have to search your content and watch. Everything will change. It will be frustrating in beginning that you can’t change channels that easily. But slowly it will teach you how to be patient. Slow apps, bad boxes, slow speed etc will give you less time to watch tv. Eventually it will be good for you.

Currently waiting for excitel fiber to launch in my area, then unlimited 300 mbps would be much cheaper than both airtel and jio.

I’ve JIO Fiber & Airtel DSL which I have requested to be upgraded to Fiber… JIO I’m using since 1.5 years…. So far no problem & its connection is stable, providing the promised speed. Recharged with 399 plan for the very first time. Earlier I was using 199 weekly plan…. 30 mbps is ok speed for a residential connection. Lets see how Airtel performs after they upgrade the line..

Important thing is that Airtel was sleeping all this time. With JIO’s arrival they woke up.. Now customers should not blindly support either & keep switching b/w two depending on service…. I am hoping Airtel which is postpaid also becomes prepaid so that I keep switching b/w them..

I am contemplating Airtel 499 plan. I have airtel 799 plan with 40 MBPS but on 5G band, I get 100 MBPS. Which works out well for me. If they have the same thing in 499, then I will shift blindly. Or atleast give it a try …..

Any tech geek here can explain, for a 40 mbps connection how can they give 100 mbps on higher bands?

Airtel all the way, because jio won’t come in my area for next 1 year

It comes with jio tv features. You have to pay higher for premium channels like sony liv, hotstar, zee5, etc.
