Airtel Broadband — Billing and Shifting

I had shifted my residential premises and requested for connection to be relocated. Airtel did honour that in a few days time after receiving all documentatins. Unfortunately since 6 months i had been trying to get the address changed so that i can receive bills on time and nothing happend. I escalated to their escalation dept., but everytime it was a blanket promise that the bills will reach the same day and apologies... frustrated i disconnected. On top of this after disconnection, i got the bills and the courier representative was showing faces to my family which is the most irritating part. If companies cannot take care basic address update i wonder how they will handle technical problems!!!! God Bless Airtel!!

Airtel Services are the biggest Cheats - DONT EVER GO FOR AIRTEL BROADBAN SERVICES

They will make a big hole in your pocket with their GB usage billing procedures. I have suffered this and only can warn you to stay away from getting an airtel broadband connection.

Dont get moved with their FREE GB USAGE PLAN - thats all .

Since 4 years I was using a bsnl connection for a given 4 GB free usage plan and I never got billed for even IMB above this but in 2 months of my airtel connection for the 1st month I was billed 5.23 GB and now this month my bill has come for 10+ GB - that sucks really.
With the same persons using the connection for a working cycle thats untouched since 4 years one can only imagine how for the 1st month you are billed for a 5+ GB and the following month for 10+ GB.. Can some one help me complain about these white collars to a legal agency who looks into such matters...

Airtel Broadband — over Bill

My telephone no is[protected]. This no. is 2 1/2 year old. Since starting I am receiving the bill between Rs. 1500 to 2000. But in the month of September I have receive the Bill of Rs. 13500/- My usage are as earlier.

While talking with Customer care they tells that this is due to internat charges uses by me but i have not use the internet so much.

The company if offering in general unlimited internet usage with the speed of 512 KBPS for Rs. 2000/- but they are charging me 11000/- for that saying this that i have not chosen that plan

you are requested to kindly interfere in this matter and redue the bill amount as per actual/earlier usage

I had applied for the unlimited broadband connection (128 kbps of tariff 799/-)(Phone No. 43016137 Account No.[protected] and paid an advance payment of 1049 for the first month by cheque which has since then been deducted from my account. My connection was installed on January 31st at my residence. Since February 2nd, 2008, the broadband is not functioning due to which a lot of my official work has been affected. The telephone line, which I was told is a mandatory connection with the broadband, also was not functioning and has been repaired twice in the interval. The installed router since February 4th, 2008 shows the link as not being available although the entire line has been checked.

Several complaints, first one on February 4th, 2008, have been made with no results. During one occasion, Mr. Kailash, the Sr. Executive who was very enthusiastic during securing the connection switched off his cell when he had to respond to my queries regarding when the connection would be up. The technicians have visited the premises 2 or three times. During subsequent complaints, none has bothered to even visit let alone rectify the complaint.

I have received a bill (Invoice No.[protected] for the period 5/1/2008 to 4/2/2008 amounting to 574.32 of which 49.24 is call charges made by the AIRTEL technicians trying to rectify the line. Rs.350/- have been charged as activation charges while Rs.126.68 have been charged for the broadband. I do not understand why the billing period has been, mentioned from January 5, 2008 when my connection was installed on January 31st, 2008.

Now, I am stuck with a phone line I never wanted, a connection that has not worked, a lot of inconvenience and a loss of Rs.1049. I am extremely dissatisfied with the way the issue has been handled and the services of AIRTEL Broadband.

Airtel Broadband — Negligence by customer care

i am using airtel broadband connection but there is frequent disconnection in it . i have complained many times and thy come and repaired but the problem continued . now from past four days i am calling the customer care to register the complaint but they will say they will connect to concerned depatment and will put me on hold but no ones replies even for 40 minutes this happend nearly 8 times and they will say that they will give a call back to me but they never did i am really fed up by their worse responce pls do help. their behaviour was really worse .
airtel bill payments are not updted in time which results in irregular services to the consumer

Airtel Broadband — faulty billing

my broadband services remained suspended from 01.02.08 to 15.02.08 The complaint was lodged with th customercare cell but instead of giving compensation in billing as promised,reactivation charges were added in th bill

Airtel Broadband — 699 standalone plan

according to the airtel's new plan of 699 i should get speed of 256 kbps but i m not getting it. When i asked about this to the person who installed the connection i got the answer that u will get the speed soon. Now it is about a month and i m still not getting the speed.

Airtel Broadband — Poor Speed

I agree. I am using 799 paln . But the service ia extremely poor. It becomes disconnected after ever 5 minutes and download speed is 20-30 kbps.

We had shifted our residence in December 2007 to Kottupuram and our telephone number had changed to 42132784. This has been functioning well but we have been facing problems with our Broadband facility.
• The installation was never completed.
• In this regard I have placed complaint many a times but no action has been taken.
• We have not been able to use internet service.
• But all the bills we received we are billed for internet service which has not been provided for.
• On 26 March we had given a letter to discontinue the internet service for which no action has been taken.
• Now we have again received the bill for internet service.
• 4 months we have paid for not using service.
We have mailed the same to to airtel officials but till date no action has been taken. We would request to kindly help us.

Extremely frustrated dealing with Airtel. Bunch of . The customer servive was trying to explain me, that ONLY DELHI people would be getting compensation for faulty service and that Calcutta customers are not entitled. When asked about company policies, he mentioned, they are not supposed to send it to customers. (bunch of BS)

For 3 days my telephone connection was dead, so did the DSL services. They engineers shows up on 3rd day in the evening, after calling them for atleast 10 times. Had to follow up regarding credit for another 7 times, where I had to kept explaining them what had gone wrong. Finally, did got 150 Rs compensation. It was a bitter sweet win. ITs not about 150 Rs but more about ethics.

Food for thought : If it was so called company's policy of not giving compensation for faulty line, the supervisor wouldnt have given me the 150 Rs compensation.

Its pathetic, the explaination they come up with. Its not shame on them but on US, consumers who take their BS. If the service aint working, WE deserve compensation. Its our RIGHT.
i m very upset because airtel broad band has given me lot of tention and loss of money . my airtel no is 45573171 at wz -98 shop no-10 lamba complex jawal heri market paschim vihar new delhi 110063. ihave given the reqest to shift my connection to my new address in same building at second floor at 3/05/2008.they said that company will charge for that 300 rs .i agree still it takes more than 10 days to shift but only wiring work has done and connrction of broadband still not shifted . i gave him information for that but they do not take serios action .my rental for this line is running and i not getting the services then who will be the responsible for the bill payments. pls take some action for that otherwise i have to action for your careless attitude.
Very insensitive to customers. Very late in understanding in customers problems.

Airtel Broadband — Unorganized and incompetency


I had taken an Airtel broadband connection almost more than 01 year back. For the initial few months, the service was satisfactory and I was satisfied with the services.

However, my problems started towards the Q3, 2007, when the services were not working. I called up multiple times to get the issue resolved. After some calls, an engineer was sent to check out the fault and rectify it. However, no respite and finally I decided to get the connection cancelled.

This is were the problems begin. In spite of giving a written request for account cancellation (to the collection agnet), my services were still active for almost 6 months. I had called in numerous times, spoken to numerous agents/ supervisors/ even to the nodel officer/ appellate authoriy, but no respite.

Finally almost 2 months after the receive a legal notice for a payment of some 1000 rupees, which I was supposed to pay.

My questions:

- why did I get charged for all these services : my usage was ZERO and I should not have been charged for all these,
- why was i never informed about these charges, when my account was cancelled. Even the person who came to take away the instruments DID NOT inform me.

I am highly disappointed with this service and I myself plannig to take some legal action, if this case is not resolved to my satisfaction. I am also lodging this complaint with the complaint
As per the bill for the last month my bill amount is more than Rs1500, where as we have been using airtel broadband from last 2 yrs and v never had the bill amount more than your monthly rental i.e around 650 and i am also sure the the usage must not have been more than any of the previous months.
SO kindly get back to me as soon as possible or else i need to disconnect my connection and neither will pay the bill for the last month.
