Beam cable service is poor. I have applied for a new connection 2 weeks back on assurance from Beam marketing executive that it will be installed in 1 or 2 days. I have been calling the call center on all these days and couldn't get the proper response. They have been telling like give 2 days time and it will be done. Later I realized that these are all false promises. Every time I call their call center, they raise a new ticket and I have list of 7 or 8 such tickets. It is a bad service from Beam, as they focused on quantity, not quality of service. My suggestion "Don't go with Beam".Regard,Kiran

@sarikiran,
Just a simple advice bro, Go to your nearest Police Station and lodge a complaint mentioned the mobile number of the Sales person who Collected money from you. No, I am not Joking

Recently A friend of mine who paid Advance For Half Year was not Given a connection from two months, I advised him to do so and actually it worked he was Refunded! :)

Luckily, the connection has been installed yesterday, after so much of esclation. I was about to cancel the connection. Anyhow, it is done for now. I had checked the connection, working quite Ok. My plan is B-Max-600, 1 Mbps unlimited. I found browsing is bit slow, but downloads are fast. download speed is around 800 to 960 Kbps, which I think is Ok.

what plan you are in ? 1 mbps or 10 mbps ? How much installation? How much they collect up front? 1st month + instal fee? or any security deposit ?
Could you please post a speed test ? :tranquillity:

Your 1 mbps unlimited is Rs 500-600+ tax? your download in MDMA is around 100-120 KBPS is not bad. could you post a speed test ?

After getting used to 2-5 mbps 3g ,difficult to go back . what speeds one could get in 10 mbps connection? say 2-3 Mbps ?

ISP always sell it in Kilobits.. Download Speed is always in Bytes(KBps) and Browsing speed in Bits(Kbps), So please don't confuse us.

@ulysses


[*]1Mbps for Rs600 (All inclusive of Taxes) you can still browse at 786kbps after finishing an Quota of 20Gb
[*]They Dont Collect Deposits, If you choose monthly basis then you should pay installation Fee of 500 Bucks or else it is free for half yearly and Yearly packages.
[*]After finishing Fup Quota in 1000plan, you will get 2mbps.
