I have recently taken Airtel XStream Fiber BB,AND THERE ARE NUMEROUS ISSUES/PROBLEMS since day 2.
 
Okay.
Jio fiber and airtel fiber total installation charges?
From what I know, airtel used to provide free installation if you pay for 3 months upfront. After that bill comes monthly, not every 3 months, like many other ISPs do. Do ask the local installation guy for exact details. Do ask if they provide fibre in your area or if its copper.

My connection is an airtel 40Mbps copper one as they don't have fibre in my area. I live alone, so fine for me, just annoying to upload big files. Most of my friends who want a good connection use ACT as 40Mbps is not enough for 3 people using the same connection & ACT's 3.3TB data plans come out to be ~500 per head, assuming sharing between 3.

Okay.
Jio fiber and airtel fiber total installation charges?
In case of Airtel XStream they took Rs.2200.00 as installation cum Router charge. I am on Rs.999.00 + 18% GST monthly "ENTERTAINMENT" Plan.
Committed Bandwidth is 200MBps, but I get only uptill 75~80MBps!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
May be issues with the Nokia G-2425G-A GPON Router for Fiber BB.

In case of JioFiber, installation charges are Rs.2400.00(including router) which is REFUNDABLE but according to conditions!!!!!

Ultimately addressed a complaint letter to Mr. Nitin Grover, Grievance Officer, AIRTEL.
That is regarding non-compliance and non resolution of servicing for Airtel XStream Fiber BB issues, replacement of G PON Router.

Let's wait & see what happens!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nokia G-2425G-A GPON

They gave me the exact model too, its wifi range is very short, maximum speed on 2.4ghz is just about 50-60, on 5ghz it goes till 112-115 (I am on 100mbps plan) but on lan it gives full speed, so I am using another router with it to get good speeds in other room.

From my previous experience, chances are there. If they do not respond in 2-3 working days, the. IMO you should ask them to terminate your connection and if they plead to not do so, ask them to give you new one. But again they may delay it like they have been doing it till now.

What about tweeting this issue if he doesn't respond?

I think this postpaid plan is similar to what you said about "0" installation charges.
And the "Postpaid" option is similar to what I am currently paying to MTNL.
In 2023, we will move to new house, so I don't want to waste money on installation charges.
I talked to MTNL customer care executive, they are not waiving of any charges on prepaid amount. They also told me that they forwarded this request to Senior Authorities and you will hear from us soon.
I think it's best to cancel service.

Can anyone tell me if Jio can reinstall for free after shifting to new location, if I apply for their postpaid plan?

They are sending a Senior Engineer from their Head Office to RESOLVE the issue, such that I don't surrender the Airtel XStream Broadband.
I WANT NEARER 200Mbps speed, come what may.

AIRTEL IS JUST SHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT ....................................................................

Depends, if full speed is achieved via lan port but not via wifi(or vice versa) then only option is to change the provided router.
No one came. I requested them to change the GPON Router. I had even written complaint letters to Airtel's higher authority,still no action.
Ultimately I am for a surrender of the Network.

Didn't you checked/tested the connection at the time of installation, I thought airtel & jio give a few days of "trial" period to test the connection.

Initially it was very good for the first day only, but issues crept up from the 2nd day. They even changed the ZTE -ZXHN F670L to NOKIA G-2425G-A router. Truly speaking, the Nokia router was much more worse.

Can we opt for our own router, so we can use their fiber cable only.
