Pricey if you buy from open market becoz of zero demand. installation is free with Den if you pay 2 month adv rental.

They give some chinese modem+wifi inbuilt you can disable wifi though.
SitiCable gives very nice Cisco WiFi Modem without any installation charges...

@Sushubh Do share if you come across VFM only LL plan from Airtel.....

They are charging Rs. 599 plus taxes in Chennai for landline only. Includes unlimited local and STD calls.

i would be ok with that honestly. just realized that i would be needing a static ip for cctv. i get that on airtel. not sure about den boomband. excitel seems to have no plans to give static. would check tomorrow. i wonder if the local guy would have any info on static ip.

Yeah, chances are slim considering ipv4 shortage. I also heard the rental for unlimited landline could fall further in coming days. Thanks to Jio.

Ok. Here are the details provided by the guy.

Rs. 1000 installation.
Rs. 800 + tax on the basic plan.
Rs. 350 per month for static IP.
Rs. 1000 for Tenda Router.
I can get 20% discount if I prepay for 3 months.

Static IP pricing is a bit high. But I suppose, overall deal is better than Airtel. Except for the missing landline part.

gave a commitment to den boomband guys and then called airtel to disconnect. guy initially offered a 25% discount. eventually ended up offering 50% discount. agreed. for six months. would now have to call den in the morning to tell them that i would not be able to take a connection.

personally i am not happy. airtel is not playing a fair game. an uncle in neighbor is paying 3 times the money for a similar plan. trai should be doing something about this nonsense.

the reason i agreed to continue is that den is costing me a lot of money. 1000 rupees for installation. 920 for 5mbps 100GB plan (2mbps fup). and 350 per month for static ip. the guy told me that if i prepay, static ip would cost me 2500 per year and if i prepay for plan itself, he would be able to offering good prices for yearly recharges. now i am not going to prepay for an entire year for a company that could vanish in thin air any time.
