I think there can be another 8% cut in Tariffs or increment in Speeds/data.


New judgments are against this move

First of all, I have experienced truly unlimited broadband in France that included landline and mobile sim. The landline and sim could dial 110 countries landline with unlimited access. Here, in Mumbai, I have one TATA FTTH which provides 2.5TB FUP with landline (unlimited call to landline and mobile) for around Rs. 800 and one MTNL FTTH which provided 220 GB FUP for RS. 800 with 200 landline call. Definitely, I experienced worst service by MTNL where, incoming landline calls are not always successful besides random disconnection after say 10-15 seconds. I am surprised why this MTNL is not made private as the scoundrel management could not fix the issue for months.

I do not think unlimited access will raise abuse. Anyhighly controlled system gives abuse and corruption. You can use knife for surgery to give life to a patient while you may also murder a person with the same thing. That does not mean knife will be sold to few individual. If access is given and proper publicity about use and abuse is spread by media, everything will become normal. We think about control because of 900 years of slavery. However, it is better to consider 5G for better bandwidth with IPV6. We need more businessmen like Ambany scattered over India for a balanced economic growth, we need businessmen to think about chip production. Controlling mob is medieval thought process which will take us backwards. Sorry for long lecture.

Current broadband scenario is like a dream for me. I started on 5 kbps shell account in 1996. Full internet access used to cost 200 Rs per hour (required STD call to Mumbai.. does anyone remember bom4.vsnl.net.in ? ).

Downloading a 2.7 GB file in a minute, WOW

That too with a downtime of just 38 minutes over last 30 days.
