Where do you live? Seems like you are away from the dangerous hustle of a typical city.I am someone who lives in a village, so don't have access to great plans like others do. Currently paying 1560 for 12Mbps with 200GB FUP and 2Mbps after that. During lockdown, my TV conked off and I thought it will be great as now I can shift from DTH to OTT platforms. However, even with just me and my Mom being 2 people in the house, the 200GB is getting over very soon and this is when we only watch anything in the evening. The next best plan available is for 2600 bucks providing 8Mbps truly unlimited. However, it is much cheaper just to switch back to DTH for me. Also, I have subscriptions to every OTT platform out there but I still download stuff in h265 format due to my low FUP. I also have 2 mobile connections with at least 1.5GB data available daily, but I get worse then 3g speeds at my home while I get 30Mbps just a kilometer away. So even that money is wasted.
I live in a village in Himachal, near Bir-Billing.Really varies, I don't keep a track. I've paid 12 months in advance got 4 months free + I got no FUP for 16 months 75 MBps FTTH

Last upgrade was in October 2019. Still waiting for their new plans or atleast give fiber at prices launched by BSNL.MTNL ₹699 6mbps FUP 160GB
They keep upgrading existing plans yearly.
And you get notified (call) about upcoming plan and which plan will no longer available.
You can easily change existing plan over a call.
Till this day there was only one major issue happened on MTNL (server side) where internet was not available for 2 days. Small issues happened rarely causing 1-2 hour internet blackout.
Yes it depends on your luck really , if you manage to find a good one that services in your area then its great if you don't find one then I guess you could do something elseThat is correct, However local ISP's offer poor routing compared to Big ISP's who have multiple upstream Tier-1 providers.
