Seems overpriced. Instead get JIO Fiber. Add 99rs. (Taxes make it to rs. 824) and get 100MBPS of speed and 3.3TB Data cap(Enough to fill laptop twice). And free voice. First try it free for 30 days. In your case, local is expensive. Also, spending 224 rs. here feels more vfm.
Not available - to both.

Check for Netplus availability as it serves some part of Uttarakhand. They have got amazing service.
Well, I think 1000gb data limit @50mbps max @700rs will be pretty ok, what do ya think (talked to the man just now)?

For this I would suggest to shortlist that ISP and continue searching for one. Maybe u find a better one. But remember, If you are a gamer(Hardcore), Dont go below 60MBPS and dont go below 600 GB data cap. Try to find someone with unlimited data. But If you are not into downloading newer games, Or files worth 100's of GB, Then 350 GB should be enough. But for speed NEVER go beyond 60. Also try to gather top-up rates, as in case you consume your 350GB data, you can always top up.

I am a gamer, tho, why will speed matter THAT much then? Won't ping be more serious issue?(no provider gives the ping tho :sad: ).

Thanks, but maybe the plan I mentioned above would be ok now?

Pretty good. But wait, Do you think your isp will put your leftover data to next month? If not, try getting a pack with lower data, but high speed. 100 mpbs and 500gb fit good

Yes ping matters the most, But Speed is both for non gamers and gamers, as no one wants to get angry over speed issue, and wants the net to work fast asf.

Any estimate on how much data consumption/month you currently have?

I dunno about that, he stated nothing. I asked him for a better speed connection but he just had 50mpbs , not constant one mind you.

True af.

Yes. See currently its split among many people in the family, but I'll say 400 gb. BUT and a major butt here, its cause I have to restrain myself from downloading any game bcoz of data limit, and more importantly measly speed of 1mbps.

Well, do you know how can I search for an ISP tho? I mean I had to basically resort to my neighbor for number of a man of this company ( hopefully he had done his homework before buying the aforementioned connection). I don't see anything regarding this online and offline either nobody seems to know , or they suggest BSNL, which has real poor servicing.

You can use google and then enquire over phone. But in my case, I didnt had to, as that guy is very near to my house. And do not believe ratings of justdial. they are biased.

Then I prefer 750 GB plan if he has. Otherwise 1000GB is also good. But you can search for more options.

Then try to find someone with high speed. Also what was that cablewaala giving?

What would be a good router for the connection I would get tho? The "man" said router would have to be purchased separately, @2000rs , so if there is any good ones on amazon I would go for it.

Is he taking any security? Cause Router is included in that. Other wise, I would suggest TP-Link Archer C50.

Ohk, I will

Well, he has 500GB for 600 and 1000GB for 700, I don't think he would now have 750 for 650?

Well, I honestly forgot and it was the reason it took so long to reply, I kept on thinking whether to ask him or not, but really the thing I fear is his services, like I didn't had any means to contact him earlier, when cable connection does not comes. They usually give ph no of their staff and they don't do $hit ( those who saw "barfi"(movie) will agree). I had previously asked him to set up connection, when this type of thing in our area was a novelty in my region, but he never came to set it up lol.

Wew, thanks to all those replied here (esp. @RumbaMon19 and @TheSloth, u both rock ).

The story is messy and confusing, though I will explain it thoroughly if someone is interested, but the gist of it is I went to my cablewala, and he hooked me up with same plan (1000gb @ 50mbps) and same company and even the same people but at very less charges than the person I first talked to was extorting. He gave me this router Robot Check for 2500, so yeah I was right about buying from amazon, but the 1st guy was asking much higher for it.
PS.These results are over wifi (I do not have a ethernet cable).

Welcome to franchise/reseller model of bandwidth in India. Their prices are always less but this comes at the cost of some weird issue/connection stability though in many cases the connection price is worth it even with those issues.

Still, the deal is better than older one. 2500 including installation? and how much security?

Yeah, ofc. I was paying 700 just for 105gb @ 3 mbps. It was cellular tho, so there's that. 2500 was the price for router (I had to buy it from him, no security). Installation was free with him, but older one was asking 1500rs for it.

I guess u are talking about my cablewaala giving me the same connection @lower cost? But AFAIK nah, see the guy that came for installation was the same guy that I talked for earlier, maybe he was trying to take some commission. Cause when he came for installation (after everything was done) he asked me to pay him 1500 for setup, but I said the setup was free. He was surprised and called the center, if that was true. The center said yup. He made a sour face, and said that I was very lucky I was getting no installation charges and even router @ lower price than he had stated.

Though here is one thing I noticed github downloads are slow, only from releases section
22.31.47-Releases · pal1000_Realtek-UAD-generic.png

22.35.10-The Largest Star in the Universe – Size Comparison - YouTube.png

This was the same with my older voda connections until I made some changes to my APN settings, I wonder why that would be.
