Optical Fiber — Jio Vs Airtel

Airtel V Fiber

+ves of V fiber

  • Very cheap — You can literally eat a meal at Mcdonalds at the cost at which Airtel offers high-speed internet.
  • Amount of data — For as little as 399 you can get up to more than 1000 Gb of high-speed data.
  • The service offered — Just wow. Depending upon your location it may differ, but I highly doubt it. If you have any complaints an agent is assigned instantly, and they literally live up to their promise of a one-day solution.
  • Unlimited calling — No matter what plan you choose, you are given unlimited Talktime on your fixed-line(Landline).
  • OTT apps — Amazon prime, Airtel Wynk, Zee5……, and much more, all free with V fiber.
  • 4k videos run as smooth as butter.

Why did I opt out of Airtel though?

Jio Fiber

+ves of Jio fiber

  • Very cheap — Rates are almost the same as Airtel, so no worries there.
  • Amount of data — In every plan you get unlimited data. The cost only manages your speed.
  • The service offered — So far so good. No complaints till now.
  • Unlimited calling — No matter what plan you choose, you are given unlimited Talktime on your fixed-line(Landline).
  • OTT apps — Amazon prime, Airtel Wynk, Zee5……, and much more, all free with V fiber.

Where Jio lacks

  • The OTT apps offered can only be used when you opt for a Jio set-top box. Unlike Airtel, which gives you free subscription on any device.
  • Surfing is not so smooth, as compared to Airtel. 4k videos won’t be the same.
  • The most annoying thing I found was that packets won’t load unless you force them to. For example, you got a WhatsApp message. But, sometimes it won’t notify you unless you open the app itself.
