Airtel 300 Mbps Plan details

Airtel likes to keep it simple. If you want unlimited data, then add Rs 299 to your current plan and the data cap is removed. Airtel also offers 300 Mbps speed and it is priced at Rs 1499 per month and offers 500GB of data. This is quite close to the Rs 1470 price of the Tata Sky 300 Mbps broadband plan.

JioFiber 250 Mbps Plan details

Jio doesn’t have a 300 Mbps plan but it does have a 250 Mbps plan. The 250 Mbps JioFiber plan has a data limit of up to 1750GB. Let’s break that down.
