I used to have a Sify connection (now my folks at home are stuck with it) before I moved to the US.Here's what I pay: $35 (incl tax) per month for a cable connection. Any time of the day, I always get 200-300 kb/s down, 30 kb/s up. Now I know sify is pretty pathetic, but none of the other providers are even in the vicinity of the worst ISP i'd find over here. Its not that I'm paying a whole lot for the service either, maybe a tad bit more, but worth every penny. And what the heck is up with the entire download limit concept? I must be downloading atleast 30-40 gigs / month.I think there is something fundamentally wrong with ISP's in india... I feel sorry for you fella's.... really do!
