Ripe Atlas probe uptime for last week.
It's been up only for 10 days or so.
Full stats at RIPE Atlas.
I think the downtimes are due to renewing the ip leases but these probes take lot of time to reconnect.
I have multiple connections from AS24186(Railtel). Just going to chime in and add a few additional details. One is a 100Mbps unlimited no FUP costing Rs. 1180/- inclusive of GST. They did not ask for any advance on it. I did read in this thread that somebody had to pay 6500/- as advance.
The second one is a 200Mbps FUP 2TB which costs Rs. 2300/- inclusive of GST. Again, paid no advance for this one as well. Very surprisingly, this plan no longer reflects on their website w.r.t the FUP. The website says the FUP is 500GB. However, when I login into their billing portal, it does show 2TB FUP. I am not too sure of why this discrepancy exists.
On the downtime side, it's been a bit spotty recently with a downtime of an hour or two every month. But their support is prompt and also have an escalation matrix in place. Notification by SMS of issues and ETA.
As @vignesh_venkatesan mentioned in the thread earlier, the architecture is CGNAT. They freely forward common ports(CCTV) to your connection. For anything else, you need to purchase a static IP address. The cost of the static IP address is Rs. 2500/- inclusive of GST per year. The caveat I was informed, static IP address is only provided to the 200Mbps plan.
@swapneelp I too came across the tariff plan discrepancies.
I spoke with the higher ups of Railtel and came to know that due to multiple factors they can't provide same tariff across a state.
So better plans are provided in some areas if it's feasible for the LCO to get thier backbone hitched to railwire's ofc network.
