"The work from home scenario due to the pandemic led to a spurt in demand for wireline broadband with users realizing the true value of broadband. People started spending a lot of time on the internet for their work, communication and entertainment-related needs. This heavy usage was something that wireless 4G networks could not handle due to data limits and coverage issues. We are offering 100 Mbps speed without any data restrictions at an affordable cost of INR 399/month. Our packages are truly unlimited, moderately priced and we try to deliver the best in class services and technology within that price," Vivek Raina, Excitel Co-founder and CEO said in a statement.

The plans are operational in 17 cities including Delhi, Noida, Faridabad, Jaipur, Lucknow, Prayagraj, Hyderabad, Vijayawada, Guntur, Gurgaon, Ghaziabad, Rohtak, Unnao, Kanpur, Jhansi, Bangalore and Visakhapatnam. Excitel Broadband is working towards reaching over 50 more cities by the end of 2021.
