I got the bsnl 384k connection 17 days back. Since then the connection's been relatively stable. I have d/led, up/led about 26GB of data(average-1.5GB/day) in 17days.. I get speeds of 45-80KB/s(360kb/s-640kb/s). For the first week, I was getting about 400kb/s max. Then after that I started d/ling data from a few sites that can push as much data as I can d/l. And I usually d/l 4 large files at a time. Every 7-8 sec, the speed goes below 380k, and then returns above 400k.I have slowed down the amount of d/ling I have done in the past week because I am quickly running out of hard disk space. Waiting for the VAT to come into effect in karnataka and I will be getting a 120 or 160gb ext hdd.I am able to d/l about 120-150MB/hr = ~ 2880-3600MB/day and upload- 750MB/day. If you are looking to d/l more than 2GB of data/day, use a download manager. For me, opera's transfer window does the job.
