The work from home culture has again become a norm for many people because of the growing numbers owing to the pandemic. People resorting to work from home can also get streaming benefits with some broadband plans that give unlimited internet which can also be used to play online games. Internet service providers like AirtelXStream, JioFiber and Bharat Fiber give broadband plans that give up to 300 Mbps data. However, users can opt for a comparatively cheaper option if they go for plans with lesser speed but which also give unlimited internet, calling and streaming benefits. As people began staying at home for work, their demands for a stable internet connection grew. Various internet service providers have been upping their game since.
Last year JioFIber introduced a host of fiber plans after which AirtelXStream and BSNL also followed suit. While Airtel made the internet "unlimited" for most of its broadband plans, BSNL introduced a bunch of pocket-friendly broadband plans. Then, late last year Excitel announced a bunch of plans that can be accessed by a regular user. Tata Sky broadband, Act Fibernet, and You broadband also give users access to fiber broadband plans. It also depends if a user lives in a particular region and wants to access broadband plans by those internet service providers. Now, 100 Mbps broadband plans by popular ISPs should come under Rs 800. Following are the plans from AirtelXStream, JioFiber, BSNL Bharat FIber and Excitel
