A Wi-Fi with fast internet speed and connectivity at a reasonable price is still in high demand as a lot of people are still working from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Three broadband connections stand out, providing cheap high internet speed plans as well as offering free access to OTT apps and unlimited data within the plan. Mukesh Ambani led Reliance Jio, Tata Sky, and Airtel XStream. Here’s a quick comparison of the three broadband connections and their plans available under Rs 1,000.
JioFiber Vs Tata Sky Vs Airtel Xstream: Best broadband plans
JioFiber broadband plans under Rs 1,000
Reliance has a Rs 699/month plan for JioFiber broadband that gives customers 100Mbps internet speeds, unlimited data, and voice calls. The higher value pack of Rs 999 offers 150Mbps speed along with OTT subscription benefits with free access to Amazon Prime Video, ALT Balaji, Discovery+, Disney+Hotstar VIP, Hoichoi, Sun NXT, Eros Now, JioCinema, LionsGate Play, ShemarooMe, Sony LIV, Voot Select, Voot Kids, Zee5 Premium, and more. It supports unlimited voice calls as well.
Do note that both the unlimited data broadband plans only offer 3,300GB of data on a monthly basis and after its expiry, you will be able to browse content at the lowest internet speed.
Tata Sky broadband plans under Rs 1,000
Tata Sky, at the cost of Rs 850 per month is offering 100Mbps speed. One can buy the Rs 1,797 broadband plan (50Mbps), which is the price for three months. At an extra Rs 100, those who want 150Mbps speed can get it for Rs 950 per month.
The price is higher than Rs 1,000 for 200Mbps, 300Mbps, and 500Mbps broadband plans. An added benefit as per the company’s official website is that Tata Sky doesn’t charge extra for the Wi-Fi router and the installation is also free.
Worthy of note is that similar to the JioFiber plans, there is a limit of 3,300GB of data for the month and once the provided data is exhausted, you will get reduced speed. The plans also support the data rollover facility.
Airtel Xstream broadband plans under Rs 1,000
Airtel Xstream plan of Rs 799 is one of the better cheap plans up for grabs. It offers unlimited data at up to 100Mbps speed bundled with a complimentary Airtel Xstream Box (provided you click on the Xstream box option too at the time of selecting the broadband plan), which offers access to TV channels and OTT content from Airtel’s Xstream app, which includes over 10,000 movies and shows. The plan comes with an Airtel Thanks benefit, unlimited local and STD calls, and also a Shaw Academy subscription.
One can also buy the Rs 999 Airtel Xstream Fiber plan, which provides unlimited data at up to 200Mbps speed with all the benefits similar to the Rs 799 broadband plan. The exclusivity of the plan is that it ships with a free Amazon Prime Video subscription, Disney+ Hotstar membership, and Zee5 subscription.
Airtel XStream and JioFiber have an upper hand over Tata Sky as both the former connections provide OTT subscriptions within their plan, something that Tata Sky has missing. However, it is a tough choice between Jio and Airtel with both providing some very good facilities at a cheap price. Airtel provides better speed and truly unlimited data with Jio providing more OTT subscriptions. Your choice will depend upon what you prioritize more.
