    *Fair usage policy applys.
    For the plan 786kbps Rs.600 the speed will be 786kbps till 30GB and then it becomes 256kbps for that month.
    Same will be the case with their other plans too,maybe the limits will be a bit higher for higher bandwidth plans.
    And now 1mbps plan costs Rs.850,2mbps plan costs Rs.1000.
    But one good thing is that they provide unlimited uploads.

    its old name was beam cable system. now they changed it to beam telecom.

    i used beam cable system broadband for an year and due to its problems, i did not continue it further.

    But now, i am listening excellent reviews about beam telecom. i think the prices are also very good and affordable.

    Beam Telecom user in Hyderabad

    I used to be a Tata Indicom (first wireline and then WiMax) subscriber for 5 years and was very happy with service and the connection. AM a power user, and used to pay Rs. 3500 p.m for the 1.5 mbps unlimited plan.

    Recently, took a look at the plans offered by Beam Telecom and went - "wow!". So decided to take their Rs. 2500 p.m. unlimited plan offering 6 mbps (fair use is 150 GB, only download!) on a trial basis.

    I've been using it for a month now, and the ping to Mumbai Server and ping to Singapore Server images are attached.

    The verdict:

    1. I am ditching my Tata Indicom connection!
    2. Installation and service has been great so far (touchwood!)
    3. They inform you if any maintenance etc. is ongoing in advance over SMS (one outage of 2 hours for maintenance so far)

    What I've learned by chatting with the service engineer who came to install my connection is that Beam has essentially reinvented itself over the last one year as an ISP, moving from basic cable internet service to a Fiber Optic based service. They have strung Optical Fiber cables all across the city, right up to the doorstep and are hence able to provide these blazing fast plans.

    Pure Brilliance!

    Got my Beam connection. The technician came home and fixed it the same day itself. Brilliant speeds. Absolutely loving it! No issues with the wifi either! :)

    Beam become even more awesome!

    So Beam Telecom is on a massive network upgrade exercise - they've re-branded themselves as Beam Fiber and now have some seriously good plans -

    Also, I got auto upgraded to the max 20 MBPS unlimited plan at no extra cost - and here's the result:

    i am trying to take B-Fast600 , a 5Mbps speed with a limit of 6GB per month at Rs600/-
    they have been serving, in Hyderabad only I suppose.
    I fear, as the service provider gets little stronger by number of connections, we would start suffering all the ill effects of the service. I shall be further reporting on their performance.

    Initial observations are , their data entry sections are inefficient to the effect, they type even name wrongly.

    B-Fast600 get 1mbps speed, not 5mbps

    If you have to listen to what I've got, they don't care! :D I have tried to get their attention for a long time now and done everything to contact them. They just don't want more customers is what I understand. Lol... :D I think that the number of customers easily available without any hard work are so many that they don't want to make the slightest of extra effort and not even when there are a good number of customers in a given place. People have been raving about Beam service(high speeds at low rates) and except few places in Hyderabad, customers aren't complaining.. but hey, I'm just gobsmacked at such conversations! What should I say, they don't care and don't want to provide an internet connection? Pretty stupid for a company? No, that's pretty Hyderabadi Nawab! Kha Biryani, khuja pet aur batti bujha je so ja! Lol...
