Timbl Broadband Review

I recently shifted from excitel to Timbl broadband. Excitel in my area does not offer FTTH and their transit speed chokes during evening time (9 pm-12 am).

I am on a 50mbps FTTH Unlimited connection paying about Rs 700/month (inclusive of taxes). Static IP if you need is another 400/month. ONU Security was Rs. 500. Running my own router with Unifi Access Point.

It's been 6 days since I shifted has till now there has been no downtime. Initially, I had to contact the customer care to get the admin password of the ONU which was given to me within a day or two.
Another great point about Timbl is that they offer dynamic public IPs to every user. No port blocked, you can run whatever you want and with a dynamic DNS service, you basically have a static IP equivalent domain name.
Timbl uses google DNS by default.

Below are a few speedtest results to UK, US, Singapore, Ind using on speedtest. Upload struggles a bit but I won't be uploading much to US/UK. Tested on a 5Ghz wifi.

Check the other thread on the effect of Covid-19 on ISPs and also Excitel has more downtime than Airtel.

Excitel has fiber on utility poles whereas Airtel has them underground so its kinda expected.

@igloo: HD(1080p) at 20+ mbps bitrate is around 30-44 GB for one hour + something minutes, multiple HD streams will consume that much data?

I have heard of HVC these days but I don't know if Indians have that gear to run it

What do you mean if Indians have the gear to run it.............. Elaborate a little:(😒👿

@dagasaheb Airtel has 3.3 TB FUP and Excitel has no FUP. Airtel is more stable than Excitel.
The services of Excitel depend majorly on the LCO. My LCO provides great service. But don't know why he doesn't want to invest in Excitel Fiber.

It requires a substantial amount of investment on LCO's part.

hevc is computation intensive and it is shrouded by hardware DRMs, so unless you have a very recent gfx card or new hardware with hw decoding support, hevc 10bit hdr video file, on the plus side it reduces file size to crazy low.
