In this 21st century breakdown, the demand for fast internet has risen up to a level that is critical even to imagine. Likewise, with the rising demand for Fiber broadband all across the country, multiple new companies, and (ISPs) have come into the field trying to offer ‘unique plans’ to the customers. One such company is Spectra. Spectra is a fiber broadband service provider that offers Internet plans with speeds up to 5 GBPS. They are better known for their services in Bengaluru, Delhi, Gurugram, and Noida.
An attribute that makes Spectra stand apart from its rivals is its economic plans. Speaking of which, one such plan comes for INR 999. Compared to what Jio and Airtel’s INR 999 plan, this plan from Spectra offers more speed and data.
The INR 999 Plan
The broadband plan of INR 999 from Spectra offers users unlimited data. The company has mentioned that there is no fair-usage-policy (FUP) limit on the data of this plan meaning users could get unlimited data.
Moving on, the speed offered to the users with this plan is 250 MBPS. The company also offers a free dual-band Wi-Fi router capable of supporting gigabit speeds. The speed is symmetrical for both downloading and uploading. Let’s take a look at the total cost of the plan for the user who is purchasing it for the first time.
On top of the INR 999 plan per month, new customers have to pay ad additional INR 1000 for installation charges. With 18% (INR 360) tax on the total amount (INR 999+1000), the user will have to pay a total of INR 4,359.
The thing which is enabling us to have dual thoughts on the company, that why the 2,000 jumps from the amount that should have been; It is just a security deposit that the company will charge the users for providing the dual-band Wi-F router.
What is the difference in Spectra’s INR 999 plan with respect to Jio and Airtel’s?
- The INR 999 plan from Reliance Jio (JioFiber) and Bharti Airtel (Airtel Xstream Fiber) offers users 150 MBPS and 200 MBPS speeds which is lower than Spectra’s offering of 250 MBPS speed.
- Further, both Jio and Airtel provide users with 3.3 TB of data while Spectra offers truly unlimited data. However, there’s one small downside of purchasing Spectra’s plan, which is no OTT benefits. (No subscriptions for Netflix, Prime Video, Disney+, ZEE5, etc.)
For some users, OTT benefits don’t make a huge difference, however, for some, it is very important. So if you are someone who needs OTT subscriptions with his/her broadband plans, Jio’s plan is the better option amongst the three mentioned above.
Another thing that users get with Jio and Airtel’s plan is the free voice calling benefit. But Spectra on the other hand didn’t introduce any feature so far.
