well lads, i fell for the meme and finally got the glorious FTTH connection. :D

Price - 2828 (incl. GST) for 3 Months. No additional charges for installation.

Landline will not not be provided. you need to buy you own and use the port on router.

Airtel user CP screen caps:





I changed my DNS to 1.1.1.1 (DNS queries will be routed/resolved through Mumbai CF node)

LOL Excitel claims as pure unlimited player but still has 100GB per day FUP & suspends the connection as commercial. Have a look

I guess that was a mistake from Excitel side. Cause a lot of times i have crossed 100 even 200gb/day and have not yet faced any issue.

Yeah, as many problems Excitel may have, I have constantly downloaded 3-8TB of data each month when I was on their connection without encountering any problems.

@heisenberg333 , Sorry, I don't have a router atm. will update when i have one. I don't see any option named or resembling "bridge" in router settings.

Updates:

router page: 192.168.1.1
username: admin
username: admin

It's now changed automatically to
username: admin
username: password


Observations:

Bad News:

* us.archive.ubuntu.com is horrendously slow, i get max speed of 100kbps. Note that this is the default mirror set for ubuntu and all of it's derivatives unless changed.
I suggest changing your mirror to something in Singapore (i use 0x.sg). IIT KGP(indian mirror) is a hit or miss and reputably unreliable.

---

Good News:

Upon changing DNS to 1.1.1.1 all of your sanskaari (TPB etc..) websites open without a hitch.
