Timbl,
Airtel Xstream Fiber
I am currently using Timbl fiber but the service of the company is very poor and the 500 gb fup is also extremely less for me. My Lco told me that he is switching to excitel in a few weeks. How is the service of excitel? Downtimes (frequency and lengths) and overall experience of using Excitel. BTW excitel is new to my city and has just started to provide connections through LCO's.

If your lco is good... Excitel would be fine 😁

It depends heavily on your LCO experience and responsiveness.
Get fiber connection, not ethernet. Hopefully all new connections are fiber.

My lco told me that there were some issues with Excitel so he is not going to provide excitel for now. I am going to switch to Airtel Xstream Fiber as they have started to give unlimited plans without the 299 voucher. A friend of mine got Excitel but he told me that there were some ping issues with Excitel as well so he had it disconnected. I live in Rajrooppur(211011)

No, my lco is Sky Vision, and unfortunately Jio is not available in my apartment, though the box is visible from my flat, its no more than 100mtrs away. Thats why i am switching to Airtel, i cant use Timbl anymore. I had a talk with the Airtel guy who called me regarding connection, he told me that the plans have changed just two days ago and are now unlimited. Some other airtel users on the airtel thread also mentioned this. The airtel guy told me that when i apply for my connection it will show unlimited on my airtel portal.

I would recommend Excitel if you have good equation with your LCO...
Does excitel suffer from congestion issue or peak hours problem ?
I have been with 3 isps (LCO based ) . They couldn't provide mentioned speed as per plan during peak time ! I used to get speed 10% of what mentioned in plan !
After midnight however it was perfect ! UL and DL as per plan !
Does excitel also suffer from this issue ?

I think your LCO might be taking in more connections than his servers can handle.
