    You fell for sales guy's trap.
    This problem is with every isp you can name, they ask for money first and then send guys for installation and if cable is cut and area doesn't have users then they don't install new cable.
    You should email them at
    delteam@hathway.net
    billingenquiries@hathway.net


    Delteam usually replies back within 2 days and do provide your hathway account number, registered phone number and email.
    It will be better if you simply state your problem and ask for refund and not write "truley cheeted" or something like that.

    Call them on this number too if you live in Delhi.
    011 4608 5777
    Select existing user option and get to their customer care otherwise they will connect you to some sales team.

    Refund process usually takes 15 days and i know it is a lot but it can even take 4-5 days since you paid via cheque and they can simply transfer back.
    DON'T GIVE THEM BANK DETAILS UNLESS THEY ASK YOU.

    If delteam@hathway.net calls you then it will be resolved quickly since they have more power than customer care but lodge a complaint to them(CC) too.

    Next time don't give isp money first and then wait for them to install the connection, tell them to get their installation team and do it simultaneously or pay via cheque and cancel it if they don't install in 24hrs.
    I was in your boat 5 months ago.
    How do i convince siti to lay cable in my area(avail 100mt away)

    my excitel lco was nice enough. i only paid after cabling was done and account was activated. iirc he said i could even pay the next day after using it for a day. i could be wrong about this though. but he never asked me to prepay in advance.

    den boomband guy asked me to pay in advance.

    When they came to your area i think they were really new maybe that is why.
    Every isp i have here asks for it in advance and you can fell for it really easily if you want to escape your slow mtnl speed.

    i am not. they were offering static ip. excitel does not. in the end decided to keep the airtel connection as backup as airtel charge just 99 bucks per month for static ip. den was asking for 2500 per year.

    yup. smaller isps have to charge more because they do not have access to a lot of IPs. Older ISPs have lots of them.
