Quite a sad launch. Not expected from Reliance as their launches have been over the top to try and kill competition.
Airtel and others must be relieved that they dont have to offer more to customers to keep em.

How much was it earlier ? im happy on my 849 plan with 150 GB + 1000 GB free for 1 year. Once that runs out, might change to higher plan or service.

Was 400 gb I guess.

I've the most basic plan as a backup. 749 plus taxes for 105 gb. Issue is that Airtel only provides 40 mbps in my area. For anything higher, the only option is Jio.

True that, I only get max 25 Mbps, How about you?
It is ok for my needs for now. Jio in near future I guess :D

I get 40. Never had speed issues with promised speeds wrt Airtel. But they aren't laying fiber in my society. :(
The society next door is running on 300 mbps Airtel. :(

I am such a tool. I finally saw that I am on 24 Mbps plan. Tried changing my plan but there is no 40 Mbps where I stay, only 24.
Surprising thing is I complained and magically, my speeds are now 30 Mbps. I wonder if they throttle speeds somehow to keep me under 30 while I might have a 40 Mbps capable connection but not offering :/

It's possible your wiring is at a higher distance to their "server room" so the speeds can't reach 40 mbps due to signal losses.

What Vishal said. Else copper lines can reach 40 easily. Maybe there's a capacity limit in your area ?
