Unlimited Internet plans

Get an unlimited Internet plan and make excess data charges a thing of the past.

With more Indians now working from home due to the coronavirus, it’s a good idea to upgrade to an unlimited Internet plan. Your usual data-capped plan may not be enough, especially if you’re now spending more time at home and eating up more data.

Luckily, a number of providers offer unlimited Internet plans which could ensure you’ll never hit a data limit and get your Internet speed slowed down.

What should I consider when comparing unlimited Internet plans?

While the exact plans you can access depends on where you live and what type of connection you have, here’s what matters when it comes to comparing unlimited data plans:

  • Speed. Keep in mind that not all speed tiers are available at all addresses. Your actual connection speed may also vary depending on things like hardware and Wi-Fi signal, though these are largely outside the control of providers.
  • Cost. Even between plans offering similar connections, there can be a fair variation in price. Prices range from around Rs 300 to over Rs 800 monthly, with the biggest price differences due to what connection speed they offer. Some of the more expensive options might include enticing extras, like TV packages.
  • Contract type. Broadband plans can either come as fixed-length contracts (e.g. 12 or 24 months) or month-to-month options. Generally, a fixed-length contract will offer reduced set-up fees or a bonus feature, but will charge you a hefty exit fee if you want to cancel your service before the term is up.
  • Extras.
    • Streaming services, e.g. Netflix, Amazon Prime
    • Sports TV packages
    • Free modem
    • Discounts off mobile plan prices
    • Home phone included

Why should you choose unlimited broadband?

Unlimited broadband plans provide the following advantages:

  • Stress-free browsing. Without a cap in place to worry about each month, you can browse at your regular plan speed for the entire billing period without limits. While a Fair Use Policy may exist, it is unlikely that you will be affected by this if you are doing what is considered normal amounts of streaming, gaming and downloading.
  • No speed penalties. Often with capped data plans, your speed is reduced if you go over your limit. With an unlimited plan, your speed won’t be throttled.
  • No peak and off-peak browsing times. Enjoy being able to download at any time of the day or night.
  • Set monthly bill. You’ll have peace of mind that your bill will be the same every month and no extra data charges to budget for.

Can I get unlimited broadband on-the-go?

If you’re looking for unlimited data, there aren’t a whole lot of alternatives to fixed-line connections. While mobile broadband is a reasonable choice when compared to Fibre, offering competitive speeds, there’s nothing yet available that approaches the largely unconditional unlimited data plans.

While fixed-line connections are still your best bet in terms of data per rupee, great alternatives appear to be on their way.

Extras

To ensure that you get the best deal available, look out for the following plan extras to sweeten your unlimited broadband deal:

  • Free subscription for an entertainment service such as Amazon Prime, Lightbox or Spotify Premium
  • Free antivirus software
  • Free modem
  • Discounts off mobile plan prices
  • Home phone included
  • Account credit
  • Joining rewards such as a TV or laptop
  • Half-price broadband for a limited time
