I was on the Spectranet 100mbps unlimited plan (1199 pm) in Gurgaon. Tested speeds today and they have been upgraded.

They are also providing a free routers to all existing consumers which can support the higher speeds.

think of it, Airtel was not ready to provide more than 2mbps to my society when Spectra launched here.
Try doing a speedtest from any of the jio servers.

I tried a few random US and Singapore servers. Speeds vary a lot. Like one US server gave me 10mbps down while another was at 280mbps down. Ping to US were around 200-220 while to Singapore were around 100-110. On an average the speeds were between 100-200mbps down. On one occasion a Singapore server recorded 700mbps up.

Jio's Navi Mumbai server: ping: 25-30, up: ~500mbps, down: ~450mbps

Gurgaon and Delhi servers: ping: 1-10, up: 600-900mbps, down: 400-800mbps.

Like this was to a non-Spectra Gurgaon server - Speedtest.net by Ookla - My Results

I think more than speeds, Spectra has upped their game in uptime and customer service, specially where they own the last mile.

Do give your impressions about the router(D-Link DIR 825) also...... as it is very poorly rated and might not do justice to 1Gbps connection..... especially the 5Ghz band....

I have a Netgear Knighthawk R7000 router. Spectra originally did not use to provide a router with a new connection. They offered me a router recently but I refused.

Ok..... so your upgradation is totally without any expenses.... no security deposits etc....
There was a security deposit at the time of installation for the fiber modem. The supplied modem had wifi disabled by firmware so people had to purchase a router on top of it. Of late they started offering a router with new connections and also offered them to existing customers who were among the first takers of Spectra. They upgraded my speed without any change in my plan. Am still paying 1199 pm for unlimited data.
