Jio is 1400-1600rs in my area.
Wait how is this variable? Typical Indian jugaad here too?

P.s. as expected today found out that the old (unused currently) Airtel lines in my building are not fiber. They will be laying fiber in a week or two. But i still wanna first use jio for free for a month even if I'm going with Airtel lol.

Also even the 1200 bucks a year extra for Airtel is a waste for me because 30M is more than enough for me. That is if quality and service of Jio and Airtel are equivalent. If Jio is MUCH worse than Airtel, then the extra would be worth it, but it seems unlikely. Seen a few complaints of Airtel on the broadband forum which seems like they're not too far off from Jio with being a-holes.

I'm going to be visiting my hometown for a couple of months. Right now there is no broadband at home as my parents use their mobiles and it's sufficient for them.

However I will need good speed for my office work.

Both jio and airtel fiber should be available at my place in indore.

Which one will turn out to be the cheapest option for a month or so? Net of the security or installation charges?

Am thinking a 30-100 mbps plan so nothing very fancy or high speed

Oops...forgot to add plan cost of ru 400 to ru 1500 installation cost.
So final cost will be ru 1900.

In the introductory offer, they mentioned if disconnected within 30 days, they would refund entire 1500 amount, post 30 days, they would retain 1000 ru as installation charges and refund 500.
I am currently unaware about the current scenario, if they have changed any. Best to ask Jio ppl about latest proposals.

A query regarding Airtel Fiber. I'm on 499 plan (589 actual). If on next recharge, I opt for higher plan and on a consecutive recharge, I downgrade it back to 499 one, can I do that?

yes you can always change plans.
some places still dont offer more than 40 Mbps so they are stuck to 499 plans only
