I am using BSNL evdo for 2 years now but I never seen speed fluctuation ( I used to do 55/- Rs. 2 day unlimited recharge whenever needed and speed were 250 KB/s D/L and 120 KB/s U/L on average ) but recently I changed mine plan from general to 750 unlimited plan ( Thanks to our new government which is changing service tax rates every month ) . So , Now I have full unlimited internet 24x7 and I nearly downloaded 400 GB data in 25 days but suddenly speed dropped from average 250 KB/s to 50 KB/s and these capped speed remained same even during off peak hours . Then to test I got mine friends EVDO general plan sim and did a 55 Rs. 2 day unlimited plans ( Results - D/L speed back to 250 KB/s and U/L 110 KB/s around ) . So , I visited the BSNL office and asked the JTO their about the problem and he said " Itna download karoge to speed toh kam hoga na " ( meaning - If you download these much then speed will be capped " . Wow! what a reply ....
So, Its a warning to all of you that never go for these prepaid Unlimited plans rather choose General plan only .

Maybe , Now speed is back to 2Mbps ( Happy downloading time ) .
What do you download so much every month? 400 GB per month and still not satisfied :eek: Do you keep your laptop on 24 hours or use router. Please tell and I will also start downloading, don't know what to download and how to manage all this without staying awake all time.

400GB per month means additional cost of Hard-disk(s) every 2-3 months.

Keep this in mind because that's what i was thinking when i subscribed to my broadband connection. It serves me a stable download speed of 1.1MB/s. I was thinking "Hell yeaah.. now i can download everything, gonna start with BluRay movies and Latest Games!". I was very happy until i actually hit the red meter of HDDs in My Computer. Then i realized its easy to download things when you get speed, but pretty costly to manage them all.

Paying monthly for broadband connection is something that i can afford, but paying monthly for HDDs is not affordable lol.
