i dont know how they have paired the plans with onu + wifi device. its looking like as if they are bundled together and are compulsory instead of selecting them voluntarily.
i will most likely end up getting the most basic onu and then pair it with my own router.
also the plans seems wonky.
like 100, 200, 300 and then going to 1000.
imo there should be more plans like 100-300-500-700-1000 giving users more option.
I have the basic ONT provided by Excitel. Yes, it does have one gbit port. It doesn't have wifi. Even their best ONT WITH WIFI (AC) won't be able to max out 300mbps that they are providing.
Excitel doesn;t have gbps plan for now. The best they have is 300mbps which itself got launched just recently. May be in future. Whichever ONT you get from excitel will have gbit port.What I have here is c7Archer. That's what I'd suggest everyone to do. Invest in good router as modem can max out speeds only on LAN, so you will need good router. Don't get router from excitel, just get the basic one which costs 750 as security deposit. Btw I must say I am far impressed with hathway, their 150mbps plan(which in website says it has FUP but it really doesn't) , is awesome and their ONT (with wifi) is good enough for 150mbps. The best part is, hathway gives it for free, no security deposit whatsoever. If you close the connection you can pretty much keep that ONT, they won't care.
I'm far happy with hathway's 150mbps compared to 300mbps of excitel's. I have both, hathway's connectvity is far better for international services and no ping loss on hathway.
Excitel on the other hand is pretty much crap, even with fiber.
