    Congratulations. Airtel is one of the good BB companies. To answer some of your questions:

    1. What is the maximum speed which i may expect under this plan?
    A. You can expect a maximum speed of 32 KB/s in this plan

    2. Is there any connectivity issue in this plan like frequent disconnection etc.?
    A. Airtel is much better in this regard. Though disconnections can happen, they are generally few and far in between.

    3. How responsive is its customer care?
    A. Most people swear on good service from Airtel. I do not have Airtel so I cannot comment.

    4. I will using internet through WIFI device. Is there any issue?
    A. Yes. You must keep your wi-fi network protected. Please read the many posts in "Broadband How-to" section.

    5.Is fair usage policy applicable though not stated on Airtel website under this plan?
    A. Airtel has applied FUP on all unlimited plans. That is what I have heard. This policy really sucks.

    6. What will be the range of WIFI device.
    A. A wifi router has a radius of 25 meters but the best strength is available within 15m. Note that walls and other obstacles will impede the signal further.

    7. I am paying onetime non-refundable Rs. 1500/- for WIFI device. What if WIFI device gets problem? will it be replaced?
    A. Generally most companies give a one-year warranty. But talk to Airtel.

    8. How about billing accuracy?
    A. Generally they are accurate.

    I have airtel 256kbps unlimited plan in north delhi. The speed is usually more than 256..(both upload and download)..the billing is usually accurate and if there are any issues they are sorted very easily. Customer Care is good. Never had any connectivity problem or slowing down problem for the past 4 months. Installation too was quick.

    Airtel Fair Usage policy is not applicable in north delhi.Talk to their customer care executive(not the guy who is willing to sell you a connection,they hardly know a thing).

    and ya..i got a modem and instrument(telephone) waiver..if you have been using any internet connection in the past,show them the bill and they will waive off the security for the modem and the phone instrument. (Even if you were not using any internet connection in the past,insist on getting a waiver).

    At my friends place Airtel is giving speed of around 35-40 KBps with 256 Kbps UL plan ,though technically you can get a maximum of 32 KBps.

    There are not much problems of disconnection and all.

    CC is better then some of the ISP's

    That's all i know........
