In July I purchased Airtel ADSL2+ Wifi Modem - Beetel 450TC1. However due to 2 weeks of downtime, I recently switched to ACT Broadband 5 MBPS plan. Now the modem is useless for me. Any idea where I can sell it off? It has 1 year warranty and I have the original bill (Dated July 2011).By the way, I am based out of Bangalore, if that matters.

Make sure you get a No dues and the refund of security deposit before selling it off.Normally they classify the amount as a 1 time rent and not purchase(They do take back 1 set of equpiment when you disconnect, but not all of it)

But I paid in full for it (Rs. 1500). I tried to rent the modem but the installation guy would have none of it!

ok, if you are sure, I think the Rs 1500 is considered as a 1 time rent only.

WTF! Seriously! I will call up the vendor listed on the bill to find out (The modem bill is not from Airtel, but some other local business).

Yes im pretty sure the Rs.1500 is a nonrefundable deposit against your modem and does not amount to outright purchase.

Airtel can go F itself. I've also recently discontinued their service and so far havent returned the router or anything. I have no use of the router and iptv box but I'm not gonna give it back just to piss them off. lol

Earlier there was only two options either rent or pay full for outright purchase which means the customer owns the equipment.

I think recently Airtel has stopped providing it and outsourced to Beetel which is another Bharti group's company.
