On the contrary, it is very likely if all of them increase rates then customers will shell out more money given how he/she is now spoilt with cheap data.
Frankly, I am of the opinion that there should be different speeds for different plans, just like what we have for wifi. You get the speeds what you subscribe for and use the profits in improving the infrastructure.
It's another case in India that those profits go into pockets rather than on infrastructure building and improving user experience.

Truly unlimited is not feasible simply because as soon as it is offered there will be a small number of people who will abuse it and choke the network for the rest of the users.
Some what true. Spectra tried unlimited and switched back to limited due to unknown reasons. My guess is higher consumption than anticipated. 😁

I would like to add one Point on ACT Fibernet we use to get 0.5/1Mbps more than promised speed now they are providing 2/6Mbps loer speeds than promised
I noticed this change after there hike in pricing (JUN2020)
which means they are going the Jiofiber way
I hope ISPS do not follow Jiofiber in terms of speed quality

^ Doesn't Airtel have a family postpaid SIM plan for 999 and 200 Mbps fiber for 999 - isn't that effectively the same thing?
not for 999 its for 1499 if its for 999 then i must go for it two sims + broadband is really good

What I have noticed on JIO fiber that if you do a speed test it will show 5% less speed than your plan but when you actually download or upload something it will give you constant speed at 99-101A% of your plan. I have a 100 Mbps plan and get constant 98-101 Mbps while downloading something.

I can confirm the same on 30 MBpS plan I get 3.5 MBPS while downloading constantly
