How is your ISP doing with increased traffic due to the COVID-19?

@Dark_Nate Even in USA FTTH isn’t available everywhere.

The reason it’s cheap is because they practically only have 1 plan. That’s gigabit. I expect the same to happen in India I’m 5 years if ISPs get Gig under 999.

@Dark_Nate I have. And it makes no sense. Airtel doesn’t even go down for 30 mins every 365 days. That is way better than 99.95% SLA.

If a leased line could improve the below, that would be a big USP:

1. Full speed to every single server in any part of the world. Not just to local servers.

2. Way better ping and jitter.

3. Better VOIP, browsing speed, etc.

I can vouch for point 1. Leased line can help you in achieving that. With a single connection I was getting 40-50 MBps on a Gig leased line. If I use an SSD and multiple connections I was able to push close to 115-120 MBps on almost every US/Europe file download (not on speedtest.net as they are not mostly accurate).
The above speedtest were done using speedtest files that many ISP host on their network

As far as point 2 goes pings are consistent (not better but solid AF).

There are other benefits of leased line/getting into commerical relations with an ISP but none of them are useful for home use

Edit: No FUP whatsoever on leased lines. I am still shocked to know that you have not yet surpassed the 3.3 Tb limit on airtel 1Gbps plan.

That is something that may be useful to some. But I wouldn’t pay a 100x premium for it. If that’s truly the case, I would pay maybe 4K for a 200 Mbps leased line. But that’s about it. Wouldn’t pay 50L a year for it.

Since today (25-03-2020) morning it is observed that BSNL has problem loading some websites (including twitter). After switching to Jio twitter loaded.

Anybody else facing the same problem?
