@salaxzar thanks. Apart from their poor wifi modem I've found this connection pretty good. At least much than excitel which disconnects frequently and goes kaput when its raining outside

@siddhant764 Nopes not yet, though mine firmware is Chinese and opening on router console on mobile is problematic as the google translator doesn't automatically work. Except that, its pretty decent, however its 2.4GHz range is not the best.

@dextermorgan I have that app, but that app doesn't have full router settings/features (maybe android one has, but iOS one doesn't). I found that app not very useful as it only had very limited settings.

Guys since yesterday, all sites using any browser running very slow (30-80KB/s), but surprisingly YouTube app runs fine at about 40 Mbps. Anyone experienced anything if this sort? Raised ticket twice, closed automatically.
@salaxzar are you experiencing this?

@salaxzar the issue has somewhat solved for now. Now sites running at above 10Mbps. Earlier even Facebook videos were buffering at auto quality (while YouTube was able to play 2k videos)

Not sure when would Jio broadband come here but one our local ISP in Punjab has already started providing 1Gbps plans and i must say that it is much better competitive pricing compared to rest of India.

4999+Taxes for 1Gbps till 500Gb and 100mbps unlimited after FUP.
5999+Taxes for 1Gbps till 1TB and 100mbps post that.

I started with a 50Mbps 50GB FUP plan, with 2Mbps post FUP for 1k/month paid quarterly.

Was bumped to 250GB FUP after 3 months for same price, also paid quarterly.

Now after 6th month, they have offered 1TB FUP for 800rs/month if I paid for 6 months straight. Looks like they are trying to retain customers from the Jio broadband launch with attractive long term plans.

edit: City is Pune, btw.
