The Top 10 (unlimited data) plans in terms of value for money. Note that I am specifically excluding "nivyah" plans as there are not enough reports as to its quality and the prices seem so low that I figure they aren’t going to be following TRAI guidelines with respect to speed (the guideline says that an ISP must give you 80% of the advertised speed).
