I am from kerala in Tirur exchange.I changed my UL900 plan to HOME 500 .But my downloading speed reduced to 8KBps -10KBps from 28KBPS -32 KBps which i got from my Unlimited plan. anyone from kerala please post speed after upgradation.
I'm from Pune with the Home 1800(512Kbps) plan. The BSNL page states I have "upto 2Mbps" however, my speeds for the past 3 days have been rubbish at what looks like 64Kbps or less. Before this I did get 512Kbps always.I tried calling them up, but the local number is engaged and the broadband call center number says "your call is important to us, please stay on line, you will be attended shortly" - that went on ten times in a sick voice intermixed with advertisements for OneIndia...
from bangalore.. man.. the speeds are not like they used to be!!! this deal is rotten..first.. we are subjected to this..max download 2-8 (2mbps)6*700(not max 2mbps speeds)=4.2gb(approx)max download 24hrs (256 ul)24*100(max 256speeds!!) = 2.4gb!! WTF!!!!to make it worse.. they reduce our speeds!! this is friggin crap! why is it that i am paying 900?? can anybody tell me?
Telecom minister Dayanidhi Maran announced that mtnl and bsnl's broadband speed will be increased from 256 kbps to 2 mbps at the same price from 1 january 2007. But there is a great comedy in his annoucement as well as disappointment for internet users.Dayanidhi Maran made the people fool. MTNL and BSNL are providing 2 mbps speed only for volume based plans. It is not for unlimited and hourly plans. When a person is paying according to his download limit (i.e. according to per mb), How can he enjoy 2 mbps speed at the same price. He is paying, how much he is using. No one will be benefitted by this promotion of speed.When telecom minister himself befooling the people, what will be the future of that country in the field of IT? He can make people befool who dont know much about broadband, but an internet user can easily understand his fraud. Mr. Dayanidhi Maran please stop doing such kind of silly announcements before the whole media.Shame on you Mr. Maran.

but he delivered what he promised. u cannot deny that fact.[/b]
The technical capability of delivering high speed ADSL was already there in the telephone exchanges. The speeds were throttled to 256/512 Kbps. Most likely they simply set the upper limit to 2Mbps. The tariff page states that the speed could be anywhere between 256Kbps to 2 Mbps. They are not guaranteeing high speed. If you are lucky to be close to the exchange and your line condition is good then you can expect to get close to 2Mbps.
