Need suggestions on switching to LCO provided broadband

I'm on BSNL ADSL 20 down / 1 Mbps up 800 gb fup plan at 699+gst.
I was approached by an LCO who runs service on Airtel backbone giving unlimited plans (100 Mbps at 999).
So my questions are,
1. Is there a way to temporarily suspend bsnl broadband for a month or two to try out LCO provided broadband.
2. What are the parameters to check before getting a connection from the LCO.
Is there anything I need to know before doing this.
I'm new to this LCO scenario, expecting suggestions.
Thanks.

1. Yes - https://www.bsnl.co.in/opencms/bsnl/BSNL/services/landline/safe_custody_plan.html I think it works for broadband as well.
2. Installation and initial equipment costs. As long as the LCO is not charging a lot for installation, I think its worth to take the connection, test it out and continue if you find it good.

Ask for a split up of the installation and ONT cost, it could be cheaper for you to get the basic ONT yourself.

He promised free installation.
He asked 1k for ONU,is it a fare price ?
In addition to this i have to pay the plan cost (prepaid).

Even if you ask them to disconnect the connection they will put it in safe custody for six months because they are not allowed to cancel connections.
