@lana @irongiant91 They upgraded my connection to Fiber for free. Didn't take even service charge.
As for Technicolor, I had that exact same modem before upgrading to fiber. I also had connection drop issues. But my issue was different, apparently. I dunno much about the technical stuff on that, but from what I understood, the signal via the coaxial was so noisy that after the SNR moves past a particular value, the modem automatically reboots itself to fix it (which is a feature). Instead of them fixing the noise, they replaced the cables and gave me fiber.

@agsbond yours is handled by lco? you mentioned plans that I dont see online and more costly, they are only showing upto 150 for monthly plans in site and we are getting 4000gb for 749+tax at 125mbps. The modem seems stable now, I have been getting steady 50, I hope after fiber speeds dont fluctuate to extremes.

@irongiant91 Its handled directly by Asianet. No LCOs involved. About the plans, the plan I took was in the website before, but now it's not there anymore. This 749 plan, where is it mentioned on the site though? Can't seem to find it.

@Luifer I was already on plan named "1 Month 1250GB IC 1499", since I wanted ~100Mbps on my coaxial. Now also its the same plan, but now I get ~200Mbps.
Hi,

Just wanted to know if this 200mbps is from the router they provided or do we have to upgrade with extra money. I am planning to take the 4 month 200mbps plan.

Also does the router they provide have dual band?

Thanks in advance.

@Exxonzer0 nope they won't give u a dual band router by default unless, u take their separate dual band router option for 1200 plus tax. They will specifically tell u that u will get 40 mbps on wifi with their default router as they have told me so

I think u should buy separate wifi router for 2k or some thing , connect it as repeater mode as it has more perfomance over their wifi ont , also u have to return the router back to them upon disconnection

200Mbps is from direct ethernet connection. I always got 150+ on WiFi. Nobody told me about the 80Mbps thing. I just checked again now and I am getting the following:

How is it possible... from what I know genexis 4410 is single band router right, so is it possible to get 150mbps speeds with it.. mine 4410 always gives me upto 70 to 80 mbps max,
