They are saying so , but i have also got another info saying that 750rs for 6 months plan . Can't really tell exact amount once i get the bill , i will update. By the way its suprising to know they are giving 100mbps on coaxial since they are clearly saying upto 50mbps on coaxial cables on their websites . Anyway there are all sorts of chances for them to capping ur speeds to 50 mbps on coaxial sinces they are mentioning the same. Try to reason with them reagrding this

by the way since u are from kochi u have pretty other alternatives i believe for eg airtel ftth and jio fiber both are available in kochi.Try to enquire about it .

Nope, Jio and Airtel are in areas 500m to 1km away from me, but they are not willing to pull to my road yet, tried many years.
Airtel said it is available in my pincode last week, I was anticipating the moment I could say fuck off to asianet. but local guy said not yet.. some day perhaps..
They gave you unlimited connection without asking to pay upfront?
Docsis 3 modem supports 100 mbps, but they put me in other category for last plan 725 monthly, i got 100 back after i paid just 750x2 months together, got extra 100gb usage too. last call, they promised same speeds in new unlimited too, but I dont trust their words, they say different things each call

if jio and airtel is availble 1km away from you , i think they come to your area sonner as both are expanding greatly since the introduction of new plans , maybe 1year . if thats the case then it would not be worth it to go with with the asianet unlimted unless u have urgent data needs.stick with docsis and wait for aritel to come


as for docsis speeds yes they can support above 100mbps , but asianet is capping them at 50 mbps as u can see at their bottom of their page. if u want a solid answer dont call cc , they wont give u a solid answer . Contact ur local office or nodal in charge of ur area , they will give u a solid answer.

the only point of contact I could get them in last week is through the new connection number, and they made someone call me back instead.
No response in emails too.
Airtel is direct I guess, I have not seen, I know it is there in an apartment near me. last call also they said it is only in that area. Only bsnl has fibre on my road and unfortunately, they will be one of the last to give big data plans

if its direct they may take time as their fiber to deploy in ur area , also if its underground it again takes time for getting required permissions and all . only lco method is faster

definitely not coming underground, interlocked brick road here. no free gaps. If only remote software jobs are available next year too, will be stuck here, I will have to rely on asianet mostly, they say these are introductory plans, did they mention if plans pricing will change for customers getting it after offer is over? I will have to wait till they fix their internet in other regions before i get solid answers

Nope they didn't say anything like that atleast to me. Maybe they will change it but once u got a plan it stays as its till its validity expires . They may or may not change plans depends upon other like bsnl airtel jio fiber with their plans. U won't be getting any solid answers from their cc regarding plans, atleast with me they were themselves confused about the plans. If u can get contact with ur area in charge or something it would be better. By the way their gigafiber is pretty stable for me in my area. I think the performance differs from area to area

They are asking another 1500 + tax for upgrading to fiber when it is available, told me it was 1000 2 weeks before,
if I can get 100 mbps on cable, I will take unlimited plans.
If not, I will just stay on current plan, it is cheaper to drop them later and then apply for new fiber connection starter plans.
Will just wait another week and see.
