you don't have to keep a landline instrument.
airtel usually gives more than promised speeds so you should get 40mbps on speedtests at least.
upload speed i believe is 5mbps on vfiber.

Okay,thanx for info.Also,I have heard that if your home is very near to your airtel hub then only you can get proper speeds.Is it true?

airtel basically takes care of that. if they are saying 40mbps, you are close enough to get 40mbps. in my case, they were only offering 16mbps on vfiber till a few weeks ago. they upgraded wires and now they are offering 40mbps. some folks on the forum have mentioned that even 100mbps is offered over vfiber if the user is very close to their local hub.

airtel would easily give you 150 rupee discount on 899 plan. some folks have managed to get a 300 rupee discount on the same plan. so do not pay full price if you do go for vfiber.
