Need justification for discrimination against Turbo 1299 plan users

Hi!

I recently complained about the unfair implementation of FUP on my plan, i.e. Turbo 1299 plan. I got a call back from Mr. Sunil Kumar from the Airtel Presence team, but he was not able to give me satisfactory answers for the following points. Hence, I am posting this here. Maybe others can provide some inputs too.

1. Why isn't the night speed of the Turbo 1299 plan being doubled to 2mbps as per your double speed offer?

As per your "FAQ for FUP" (Airtel Broadband : FAQ for FUP) page: "If you were an airtel subscriber on with a data plan of upto 2 Mbps, you will find that airtel upgraded your speed at no extra cost." This is NOT true for the 1299 plan, as only the day speed is being doubled, and not the night speed.

2. After the FUP limit is reached, why aren't the speeds brought back to the original plan speeds?

Once the FUP limit of 25 GB expires, the speed is reduced to 512kbps for both day, and night. The original plan's speed (before double speed upgrade) is 512kbps day and 1mbps night. As per your "FAQ for FUP" (Airtel Broadband : FAQ for FUP) page: "Once you reach FUP levels, your broadband speed goes back to your original pre-upgraded speed." This is again NOT true for the Turbo 1299 plan as the night speed is reduced to 512kbps instead of 1mbps as per the original plan.

3. Why has the FUP limit been decreased from 100 GB to 25 GB?

My original FUP limit was 100 GB. Why has it been reduced to 25 GB now?

So you see, the Turbo 1299 plan users are at a double disadvantage. First their night speed isn't doubled, and then their night speed is reduced to half after the FUP. This is highly unfair, partial and unethical behavior on Airtel's part, and I demand proper justification for the same.

Regards,
Kalpik

Ya, even I had opted for that plan (when it was launched) but I'm glad I got it changed to "Downloader 1099". My current plan is as follows: Day 1 - Mbps UL (upto 20GB, 512 Kbps thereafter), Night - 1 Mbps UL (NO FUP). But, since last couple of months I'm getting constant 1 Mbps speed no matter how much I download. I'm pretty sure last month I downloaded around 100 GB and uploaded around 50 GB but there was no change in speed. So, I'm quite satisfied with airtel! :D

An update on this plan. I just started getting 256 KBPS speed and I enquired whats the matter, They said that the new FUP is to give 256 kbps on all connections once download limit has been reached. I enquired thattill date I was told that my speed would go back to my original plan but they said again(mechanically) that the new FUP is to give 256 kbps connection to everyone. Basically doesnt matter if you took a 2 mbps Unlimited or what not your plan has been reduced to 256 kbps plan for the same amount that you were always being charged.I'm planning to get my broadband disconnected(which I presume will take an year) and change to MTNL who are providing 1 mbps unlimited(truly unlimited no FUP) for 999 Rs.
