Who Provides the Best Broadband Services in Powai?

Hiten needed a broadband connection at Lake Homes, and we asked out friends to help him out in selecting the a broadband service provider in Powai. I’m very happy with Airtel for past two years and used to have nightmares with YOU telecom. Check out some of the answers if you are not satisfied with your current broadband connection. From the discussion it certainly looks like what works for one, doesn’t work for someone else. Unless you have a relative working in MTNL I don’t recommend it for sure. But other interesting choices are Trikona, Hathaway, MTS, Reliance, Sify, Rajesh Cablenet and Nivyah Broadband.

    I’ve used MTNL for over 2 years in Powai and nearly 2 years in 2 locations in Matunga and Mahim. It is by far the BEST and most reliable. In these 2+ years the connection has perhaps gone down 2-3 times. And it’s been repaired IMMEDIATELY; haven’t had to bribe anyone, just one call will do. Once I called their technical call centre at 3 am to report a fault and it was set right immediately. This level of service is extraordinary. I compare this with Hathway Internet which my in-laws use at Mahim and that is a lousy, slow connection that keeps giving trouble and where customer service is non-existent. Also use a Tata Photon provided by my company–it works decently at Powai, but has given me major problems at many other places in Bombay. In Delhi, it just refuses to work on Broadband mode–you just get the slow connection. And just returned from Bhopal this morning, where Tata Photon completely refused to work–even the slow connection is not available. I use BlackBerry from Vodafone too and when I compare Vodafone’s third-rate customer service to MTNL, I feel MTNL is far superior. They don’t have marketing savvy and smart offices, but the work gets done and their service is far superior. Which after all is why you want broadband right? Not for the brand or the marketing campaign that seems to make it cool.

    Depends on what you want it for. If you are a casual user with need for occasional browsing and e-mail anyone will do though I would recommend YOU which is most cost effective. They have a 1.5 GB plan at Rs. 300 monthly.

    But if you are a heavy user like me the best option is MTNL. Though there service is not as good as the others, nobody today can beat the unlimited plans that Triband offers. The others will be at least twice as costly.

    If you are a mobile user and have to use broadband at home and while you are travelling than just pickup anyone of Reliance, Airtel or Tata’s advanced USB modem based service. Though check first if you have good signal in your building of the service provider that you select. Not much in terms of commercial between them to choose from.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers!

    MTNL is a sister concern company of BSNL and comes under Central Govt… The customer base of MTNL is nearly 5.92 million. And from past few years the graph is going down even if the Indian Govt. is spending too much of huge amount to uplift the customer base, but still the graph is going down and the main reason is their “GREAT SERVICES”. The MTNL lineman don’t have enough idea to configure even a modem and to solve a single complaint they take nearly 1 month or more because the don’t have enough workforce and the coverage area is very big. And when you see the MTNL exchange you become shocked to see their exchange, made of HUWIA equipments, and when you see the AIRTEL exchange you will find Ericson equipments just because the cost of HUWAI equipments are nearly half then Ericson.
    Basically they have two type of exchange one is for 256 Kbps and one for above 256Kbps, if you buy plan for above 256 then you may get good response because for that only they use Ericson exchange.
    I raised my voice at Consumer Court and submitted a online complaint and found that I am not one who is facing the problems with MTNL http://www.consumercourt.in/broadband/1-mtnl-broadband.html here you can check the details of complaints.
    I don’t know why the Govt. change the plan to get more customer and spend a huge amount in ads, the salary of lineman is nearly 15000/-, I think this is a total waste. Customers are very much frustrated from MTNL. If you visit the MTNL exchange you will find many customers shouting on the Area Manager. MY personal experience with MTNL was pathetic and now I switched to another services provider and now I am very much satisfied.

    Try Genstar. 25000060, 22913582 ….They give better service with better packages for broadband. In case of wireless then you must opt for MTS

      I completely agree that Rajesh Hathway is very inconsistent. And their technicians and employees, including Branch manager “Sonal” are pathetic. They behave worse than MTNL guys. I recommend”Never buy Hathway Rajesh”.

    Hmnn! Written on 18th August 2015
    Was on 512kbps with Rajesh cable internet along with their cable services for 4 years. Atleast for internet I was fedup up with their services as internet never worked when needed. For 3 years now have been with MTNL 2 Mbps plan. However over this time their network drops increased and download speed decreased to a point that i am fed up and running pillar to post as most windows 8 compatible webpages do not load or do not go to the next page. Am considerin switching back to rajesh or other provider for higher speeds and better service. Maybe rajesh cable 4 Mbps unlimited will be effective?
    Data: MTN 2MBPS UNLIMITED gives me average 1 Mbps through speed test and max download speed of 150 kbps. Upload speed is half that.

    Spectranet is slower than advertised, but the main problem is with customer service and billing. It is just horrible. They try to cheat you out of money via multiple tricks. Very Delhi/Gurgaon culture.

    if activation gets stuck for any reason at all due to their internal faults, they will charge you from your booking date and keep claiming that their system does not allow correction of activation date !

    They try to cheat you out of your money by disconnecting your package before it ends or collecting money for 8 months and giving you service for only 4. Then you keep running from pillar to post because your money is stuck with them and you will try to recover it rather than going to another ISP. The billing system is completely ad-hoc. Their helpdesk claims to have no knowledge of the emails written to them, and they just keep giving you standard pre-packaged replies. The helpdesk and billing does not even acknowledge facts corroborated by their own technical team and service logs!

    Look up Spectranet reviews on mouthshut or any other review community. You will realize you are better off donating your money to a good cause rather than giving it to Spectranet.
