administrator No comments

Bharti Airtel recently introduced new ‘Impatience Plans’ where it brings blazing fast 4Mbits/s (that is, 512 KBytes/s) broadband starting at just Rs. 899. Full plan details can be seen in the infographic below.

‘Impatience’ plans are really competitive because even if the speeds drop to 256Kbps after the predefined threshold, it is still remains better compared to other plans from other ISPs. They are currently available in Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Gurgaon, Mumbai and Noida. Keep checking their official site as many cities will be added soon.

Out of the 4 ‘Impatience’ plans, I find the ‘Impatience 1099’ most appealing. I can quickly download a lot of data ;) within 12GB and then be back on 256Kbps with just 350 Rs. more than what I currently pay to BSNL for a 256Kbps unlimited plan.
