Home broadband is no more a luxury and now has become an essential entity in every household. Amidst the pandemic, we have seen life-altering changes like working from home, learning from home, and consuming infinite content from the home. For all these activities we need a high-speed internet for a seamless experience. Broadband is the reason for effective communications and several digital experiences.
But you must have known surviving only on mobile data is not easy though it is readily accessible and cheaper as compared to broadband. Many of the cellular carriers have monthly plans but they provide a limited amount of data. While the broadband providers have monthly plans, which provide unlimited data with high-speed internet. In India, the cellular network is continuously evolving, and the latest 4G generation provides an average speed of 6Mbps. The average download speed of broadband in India is 29Mbps.
If you are experiencing slow internet speeds, you should upgrade it to a better broadband connection. In this article, we will discuss a checklist that you can refer to before you select a new broadband service among the many options available today.
Identify your Usage
Before you select any broadband service provider you need to identify how much bandwidth you require. For that, you need to understand how much time you spend on the internet. If you are using the internet for working from home or watching TV shows and movies with your family, you can go for medium-range plans which offer limited data. If you like to play heavy multiplayer games, you will need huge loads of data so you can select between unlimited broadband plans. If you are someone who just browses through the internet and sends E-mails, then the beginners’ package of 30-40GB per month is just enough. The cost to the usage ratio should be evaluated wisely. Don’t pay additional costs for the data which you are not going to use.
Availability in your area
Nowadays you can find a plethora of ISPs on the internet. But you need to confirm that how many of them are available in your neighborhood. You can also visit the brand websites of different providers to check if they offer services in your locality. You will also find different broadband plans they offer and other services that are included in the plans. On the website, you will also find their contact details so that you can contact them instantly.
When there are so many options available you can compare different parameters like speed, download limit, bandwidth, etc. of different ISPs. Many of the broadband providers offer similar features and pricing. You can get confused between these plans so you can look for unique services and other benefits like a complimentary subscription to OTT apps, landline services, etc. You can also compare the basis of the different plans the availability and installation charges applicable to your locality. Look for providers who have combined packages which include TV service and phone service along with internet service. Instead of getting all the services individually, it is better to have only one provider for all the services.
When you decide the brand to go for you should always check the reviews. With this, you can get first-hand information from the users who already bought the broadband service. From the reviews, you can get information related to their service and best plans. You can also check the brand website of ISPs to read reviews about their plans, speed, and the after service.
If you follow the above checklist you will find the best broadband which suits all your requirements and budget.
