they seem to have too many speed issues on weekend or even randomly during weekdays. right now i barely see 2-3 mbits outside india on a 100mbit line. their international bandwidth is very limited

u on ion as well? i just called n threatened them to shift me to airtel routing frm tata or i wud throw all their equipment off my building !! :p
i suggest u ask for airtel routing as well. if they get enough ppl repeatedly asking to change the routing it might force them to make the change. initially i had airtel routing and it was awesome back then.
bw what speeds are u getting right now?

I will ask them about it..

Its good to know that they understood your request of changing the routing.. (They seem mostly trained to ask you how many lights glow on router, blah blah.. :p)

Initially, I was using their 16Mbps plans but was a bit hesitant to move further up due to their frequent connectivity issues. They do take a complete day to fix any issue.. (Most of the times Fiber cut ho gaya hai) is the reason.

Recently, they even reduced the duration of their plans from 90 days to 84 days.

Currently, I am using 10Mbps, better for torrents & as the ISP provides peering, Its fine as long as it works.

Using Jio (4G) whenever it goes down.. for browsing.

I had frequent issues and downtime in the month of November last year, before that never faced any such issues. Though, never had any speed issues and always got the advertised speeds.

Regarding to the routing, yes, their Airtel routing has better pings than the TATA one.

After renewing to this 1Gbps plans the pings have increased drastically. I'll need to ask them to change the routing, but will they really do it ?
