In this pandemic and the lockdown scenario, there was only one thing to survive at home and that is the best broadband connection. Some people lost their jobs which is very sad. Those people who are working with tech companies or MNCs, needed a very fast and reliable internet connection while working from home in the lockdown period. For Delhites, I am sharing my insights on the best broadband companies in Delhi. These companies are also providing Fiber connections to their customers in almost all the areas in Delhi at a very affordable cost. Take a closer look from my perspective.
This is a big player and a direct competitor of Reliance. But this company made a good reputation in the market by giving consistent and high-quality services to its customers. Airtel gives a reliable connection. There is almost no speed dropout or ping loss and you get a constant speed. That’s why this is in the first place on my list.
The unlimited plan starts with Rs. 499 where you will get up to 40mbps download speed. One drawback of using Airtel broadband is that you don’t get enough upload speed. But that’s okay if you are not a YouTuber or a gamer.
Now Airtel is also giving you a DTH box with a broadband connection. So, there is no need of using a Dish antenna. The DTH box will work with the internet connection.
With the basic plan, you also get subscriptions to these entertainment services Airtel Xstream, Wynk Music, Shaw Academy, Voot Basic, Eros Now, Hungama Play, Shemaroo Me, Ultra.
Although, you get Amazon Prime, Zee5 and Hotstar subscription, if you select the plan of Rs. 999 or above.
When it comes to a Fiber connection, Airtel recently introduced One Airtel Plan, which means you will get Fiber, DTH, and Landline or Fixedline under one bill plan and cost. The starting plan is from Rs.899 which gives you 75GB, Unlimited calling (Local & STD), 350 TV Channels.
This is one of the companies that can give you a fast broadband connection of speed up to 100mpbs in their basic plan without any Fair Usage Policy (FUP). Their download and upload speeds are approximately the same. This is a big benefit for Youtubers and web developers because they need to upload big files at a very fast speed.
They have now upgraded to fiber and providing their service at the price of broadband. The cost of the basic plan is Rs.699 for a month. A fiber modem with dual-channel WIFI will be provided at an additional cost of Rs.2000 which is refundable. You also get a discount when you opt for 3 monthly or above plan. You can check all the plans and rates here. Although, there are no installation charges.
There is one catch with the company, that their speed is not constant every time. Sometimes in the evening, you need to struggle while watching videos on Youtube. Customer service is good, but sometimes it gets disconnected from the ISP and this is very annoying when you have really important work to be done. But I think it depends on the area you live in.
In short, this is the best option on the second number. You can go for it if you are a hardcore uploader. And be ready for the glitches very often.
This company claims to be the fastest Broadband in Delhi and verified by Ookla, an online SpeedTest company. As I always say that it depends on area to area, it is a good option to choose with many pros and cons. ACT is not established in every area but it is expanding.

Their plans start from Rs.799 with 100Mbps speed and 1000Gb of monthly data. Extra 1000Gb is free for new connections which is more than enough even if you watch Youtube videos regularly. In addition to that, you get 1 month free trial of Zee5 and Epic On and other services at a discounted price.
Again, you can face no connectivity issues very often. But that will be rectified within hours.
SITI Networks was launched in 1994 and this is a subsidiary of ZEE Entertainment Ltd. The price band is on the lower side
Bonus Tips: If you have regular work and you don’t want to get disconnected, and your budget allows then try to get broadband from two different companies, one will be the primary and the second one as a backup.
