Hey Guys,
So in a couple of days im gonna apply for a new connection from excitel mainly because of their symmetric speeds, as i do run a youtube channel its gonna be big help. i do sometimes play online games like battlefield 1, with my current isp (Siti Broadband) i do get playable ping from Asian and European Servers and im a big torrent user, so again their symmetric speed are gonna help me with seeding.
So what do you guys think, should i give them a try considering my usage.
And One last question - do they provide a wifi router or we have to buy one ourselves. if we have to get one ourselves then which router would you guys recommend. my only requirement is that it should be a 5ghz ac wifi router, i think tp link archer c50 would be good enough but would love to get your suggestiions.

you wont be able to play online games on excitel because of double nat i believe.
some lcos might provide routers but it is better to get a good one yourself.

my personal experience trying to seed open source software and private torrents has been poor. there are people with better resources who take most of the load. on excitel, you are more likely to end up seeding with other excitel users as they get preferential treatment. others might have a better idea about seeding.

as for speeds, yes, upload speeds are good. you would love how fast content uploads to youtube.

To simply put it, any service that's peered with excitel will work just fine and everything else will suck. You can't game on their network because of constant packet-loss.

You can use a VPN to bypass NAT, it costs though (free ones are shit) and could add latency. If you want to game on VPN , find one with open ports and servers in India (preferably in Delhi).

They don't need a router to check whether internet is working or not (given you have a laptop with Rj 45 port).
