Moving from Reliance Broadband to Airtel Broadband
I have been using Reliance broadband DSL based broadband (broadnet) 1 Mbps Unlimited connection for over a year and the speeds on reliance have been great with little downtime but I have finally decided to move to Airtel broadband from reliance, to find out why continue reading.
A brief flash back, before moving to a new location over a year ago, I was using Aritel broadband but, Airtel was not present in our new location, hence I opted to go with Reliance Broadband. I was a bit skeptical at first, but Reliance broadband turned out to be great, the connection speed is lightning fast much faster than Airtel also in terms of latency, the download speeds also are always slightly above the promised speed, the pings were also great and it did not slow down during peak hours, the uptime also has been great it was down like for only a day in a year, customer care surprisingly was prompt and I also never had a billing problem with them.
If you call the customer care they will say that you just cant use a router with this connection, (BTW the login page works around 70-80% of the time with the WiFi router). I just don’t know why they have this weird system in place even for users with un-limited connection package and when I am paying over 2,200 bucks for a broadband connection it should just work, the way I want with my devices, I don’t have to fight or trick the system or to get to the login page, I have better things to do than waste my time waiting to get the login page.
I finally had it coz of this crazy login page issues with reliance broadband, luckily around 2 months ago Airtel started providing there broadband services in our area and I have decided to move to Airtel broadband inspire of working out to be slightly more expensive than reliance broadband, but I wont be disconnecting reliance right away as speed wise it rocks, it will be my secondary backup internet connection for a while, will write a review about Airtel broadband after using if for sometime.
