what i can say about my experience with airtel in gurgaon...speeds are slower than what they promise. but the connection is rock solid. customer support is excellent. the wiring they do is awesome and they would not crib if you get them to wire all your rooms for ya. ;)

You will get good speeds, that's for sure... every now and then the speeds might drop but the customer care is very good.As Sushubh said, their wiring itself if way more professional than others.Their customer care is fairly fast in addressing problems - in fact for the landline if there is any problem (and I haven't had one in the 2 years I have had it!) they solve it within 4 hours. The broadband might take a day or two but that's good enough.And yes, there should be no second thought about shifting from Sify to Airtel.

Im using Airtel since the last 6-7 months and lemme tell you I'v never experienced downtime.I have 256kbps(day)/512kbps(night),1GB limit plan and speeds are pretty consistent here in north delhi.Customer care is top notch(though you'll rarely need em).
