I went back to Tikona after my Metronet fiasco and had been waiting for another High Speed fiber based provider. My wait ended sometime in the last week of July when my Local Cable Operator made an agreement with BBNL - We now have 10 Mbps UL for around Rs.1400 (with taxes). *The connection has been reliable ever since & i haven't noticed any downtime till now, although i don't stay connected all the time nowadays. *The speed however fluctuates & drops to 2-5 Mbps at times but i get around 9+ on an average. Good Speeds on some downloads & torrents i tried for testing.

My only concerns is while using VPN Services for Work & Otherwise. *It does connect but disconnects abruptly in between the sessions and then it takes about 5-10 attempts to reconnect, then the issue repeats again :(

*Is anyone else on BBNL facing similar issues with BBNL or have a solution to this VPN Issue

Here are a few snapshots that will describe the connectivity:

Ok the first downtime... net is down for almost 2 hrs now [emoji45]

On the bright side: VPN issue is fixed to a great extent by changing a certain security setting

This is another issue with local cable operator based connections, can't call at odd hours [emoji19]

One more thing, operator says BBNL is launching 50 Mbps plans soon, in about a month. Does anyone else have this update

Hi Madhu,

My BBNL broadband speed is 20 Mbps but am getting a download speed of 10 Mbps. Can you please suggest to why this is happening? I want to get a download speed of 20 Mbps.
