Well, like they say, the more the merrier. Syncing lower would be advised if your connection is unstable, airtel anyways caps the speed on your PPPoE user ID on their end. So, the sync rate doesn't do much, unless, the server fails to apply the cap, or the actual sync rate itself is lower than the speed provisioned, in that case you would be hard limited by your sync rate.

Yes, if you have 45Mb sync rate then you should be able to get 40Mbps. But, in the end it all depends on airtel, if their line feasibility doesn't show your line is good for 40Mbps, they simply won't do it.

Oh, just saw that. The numbers are pretty good in themselves, but, I see a lot of downstream FECs. How long had the modem been up for when you took that screenshot?

@Karan It's 7 days or so... But I have not used the internet of this modem. (I have multiple connections). I have not used more than 50 MB of this internet in my current cycle.

What's the issue you think I have here?

Yes,you guys are correct.Checked speed via Ethernet and it's 40 Mbps on newer laptop,same speed on iPhone 6 too.I guees my ancient laptop and phone are the problem.:rolleyes: By the way, i also just remembered that the Airtel engineer also achieved 40 Mbps on his phone.:p

Anyway,seems i have another issue.So the 500 GB bonus has yet to show up on my smartbytes page.Just spoke to CC and person said i have activated it.but it's not showing up?

Since it is a prolonged uptime, there may not be any issue in that case, in a short duration it may have been.

Good that you got to the bottom of it. :p

The 500GB will show on the "Selfcare" page when you login to your account on airtel.in or on the airtel app. The GBOD/Smartbytes page will show your current months usage and any rollover along with any smartbytes your purchased.

Yes, this is the data has to be finished off by March. After finishing it, you can call them and have it added to your account again, provided they keep it around for that long. :p

On a matter related to speed,if any of you are using Utorrent,could you please check if my settings are optimum for my net connection speed (20 Mbps/5 Mbps)? Apparently,even though the port listed in my utorrent is not open,yet i can see the green checkmark (network OK) in utorrent.:unsure:

Also did a check for port 80 and my utorrent port on canyouseeme (Open Port Check Tool):
Error: I could not see your service on xxx.xxx.xxx.x on port (16309/80)
Reason: Connection timed out
