Atria Convergence Technologies (ACT Fibernet) has been venturing into different segments since the start of 2019.

ACT Fibernet Security Deposit Refund: How it Works?
ACT Fibernet also revealed some details on how the refundable security deposit works. If an ACT Fibernet customer on any of the eligible plan chooses the ACT Stream TV 4K box, the company will provide it at Rs 1,500 which is completely refundable. But there are some catches to this offer.
If the customer returns the box within six months with all the accessories, then ACT Fibernet will credit the Rs 1,500 amount to the customer’s account. If a customer chooses it to return after six months, then their account will be credited with Rs 250. That being said, for ACT Fibernet customers, it’s a good deal, especially if you watch a lot of content has doesn’t have a Smart TV in your home.
