Here are the fastest fibre optic broadband providers in India. The tariffs have been updated for the month of October 2016.
Airtel: Airtel offers 100 Mbps broadband in some cities, but there is no easy way to find out which ones. You have to check for availability in your city. At times, the plans are not displayed, and a form for requesting a call back appears. In Gurgaon, a speed of 100 Mbps is offered with an FUP of 200 GB for Rs 4,799 every month. Airtel Broadband users can upgrade to the V-Fiber, the first time vectorisation has been introduced in India. Vectorisation is Europe’s most used broadband technology, and delivers higher bandwidth by reducing the interference in the connection.
