I usually get a max of 27-28 kBps...Today since morning, i've been getting an average of 54-56 kBps downstream, and 28 kBps upstream.Hoping that this is not a 9/11 bomb dropped by airtel (check today's date). :p I checked another connection of 256k (u/l but in a different exchange, and dunno whether the plan is slightly different, maybe the Rs.900 or a business plan), and he says speeds were especially bad yesterday so airtel might be compensating for it today, but then his connection speed is still especially bad today also.Note that these speeds are NOT a night-doubling, i'm getting these speeds in day-time... So the upgrade is either a flash in the pan, or it is actually a permanent upgrade happening in exchanges one-by-one.

As you might have guessed, the speeds stopped.There was a prolonged power-cut on thursday night, and after a reboot on friday morning, my speeds are back to the usual. So it lasted from monday morning uptil thursday night (4 days). If the exact circumstances that cause this are known, it'd be more easy to make use of the "opportunity" next time...
