    Angry Airtel is worst ISP

    Hi Airtel is the worst broadband provider in India.
    They are master looters of the country.
    If you think I am joking, just let me share my expirence with them.
    First I took the connection for 649 plan with 3gb of limited usage. soon after realizing that the usage limit is not worth, i decided to cancel the connection and called them, spoke to them, but they pursed me to keep the connection and asked me to go for retention plan.
    They said the plan will be shanged immidiately.
    and I don't have to pay any more money other than the 599 rupees with 20% discount, with unlimted usage at 500kbps.
    I was happy and went for the plan.
    After month they gave me 2700 bill , I called them but they appologised and said that they will correct the bill but the bill never got changed for the bill of 2000 rs for four months they made the bill 5380.
    I called so many times but no one cared. they ask apologies but thats it. No one works on the issue. Issue will be open for years and the fine on the bill go on increasing.
    Finally the issue will be moved to lok adalat court in bangalore for the settlement of the amount.
    There we both have to (Airtel and the me) come to an agreement. So I had to pay 2500 where in the the pan charge would have been costing me 1500.
    Also I had to waste the travelling expenses.
    Worst pathetic service.....Don't go for airtel...

    I'm starting to hate Airtel since they introduced this FUP, the data limit they offer is so poor and now they even block torrents.

    Thumbs down

    Hi,
    I'm the Airtel Land line & Broadband customer.

    I have raised complaint related to Broadband connectivity on 30-Sep-2012.
    After making some configuration changes on router, problem gets solved for some time.

    Again it started giving connectivity problem. ADSL line coming & going.
    I called Airtel Engineer. He told me to replace the router.
    After that for one week, connectivity problem is still continue.

    On 11-Oct-2012, I bought new router & connected it.
    Still the connectivity problem is there.
    So I again raised complaint related to Broadband connectivity on 11-Oct-2012.
    Again Airtel Engineer came & investigated the settings & everything.
    There was no problem from router or PC.

    The problem is due to bad wiring.
    I lost 13 days of connectivity & work due to bad service of Airtel Engineer &
    Airtel Company.
    Also I bought new router for Rs. 1425 which is actually not required.
    The problem is due to wiring & not due to router.
    It is the duty of Airtel Engineer to examine everything properly & then ask
    customer to replace the router.

    BSNL : Depends on your area, the CC varies..

    Also almost all the people working at BSNL are above 50+ age, so if you ask them a doubt regarding anything..

    All they answer is :
    1) Restart Modem
    2) Restart PC
    3) Still doesn't work "Ok, i'm taking a complaint"

    Best thing about BSNL is they won't charge you a fortune, also they let you keep your landline unbilled and still let it useable for 6 months


    Whereas Airtel on the other hand has a good technical support whereas they charge you a fortune

    i suppose it dsnt matter which ISP you have opted for they are all the same ek thali ke chatte batte. I had BSNL broadband for a long 4 years it all fine unless you are jagged towards a tech issue/faulty/busty tele line nobody bothers to get it up & running besides that i suppose they are great. Prior to BSNL was with Airtel had no real time issues beside bill getting spiking up all the time.

    Currently have a Airtel dongle 4G & Hathway, it's(Airtel) good but lets you in S>H>I>T, when you need it the most. Head's up for dongle, plz don't opt it as you it's very hard for anybody to get a speed which they convey inspite of towers located close to you locations. Hathway, havent experience any downtime yet besides 2hr's i guess worst is yet to come).

    Planning to migrate to Airtel Broadband Hypersonic 1600 – 60 GB,
    Rental Rs. 1600
    Speed 20mbps
    Fair Usage Policy Limit 60GB

    Moral, dsnt matter who you opt(ISP), everything trickle down to BBMP & BWSSB(in my case) who take pleasure & joy in cutting roads.




    Any advise, why i get this error?

    The best? paying 1000 p/m for 256 kbps is what you call best then no one can really make you understand.

    I havent had a chance to use Airtel's broadband regularly so cant say much about Airtel but all other ISPs I have tried go bust after some time and I switch to something else then go back to one I left like 3 years ago and the search goes on. I am using Mtnl 3g, Airtel 3g and Vodafone 3g these days so all three of them put together makes a good ISP atleast as far as connectivity goes because I simply switch to the other ones if one of them looses connectivity for some reason.
