I am having the exact same problem, funnily download speeds are usual (11kBps) once I get connected, but sites take ages to open, if at all they open :/ Seems a problem with the domain name servers?

BTW, which DNS are you all using? (Windows users, Right click Network, Properties, DNS servers are listed in some tab as. Linux users, cat /etc/resolv.conf).

These are mine -

nameserver 202.144.66.6
nameserver 202.144.115.4
nameserver 202.144.50.4

I am using the same DNS servers as u ujjawal.I dont think the problem is with DNS bcoz once a download starts.....it slows down and stops in middle.I confirmed with CTO.....he says problem is at Sify's endBut I wonder why Sify is taking ages to solve the problem- already 3 days

Sify (best of the worst)
I know the error on that pic. I recently have faced similar things. Still I don't believe that if you get that error + a reduction in normal speed that Sify is at fault. If you get just that error but not a reduction in speed then it would be just a dns error.I think I know of another thing which can cause that error+slowness but I still have to test it.....Damn Sify and it's lack of security
