I have a 999 Rs 1 mbps unlimited plan . These days I am getting very low speeds .



I used to get > 0.9 mbps downstream from this server .





I complained to MTNL but they said i was synced the right speeds , and my modem HG520 also shows 1152 / 509 as the speed

Any ideas ?

This is from the Delhi server :


Its weird , downloading a file through a download manager i get full speed :

Downloading the same file through the browser (tried firefox , safari , chrome , opera) is very slow

Even on well seeded torrents i am getting 100 kBps +

Online streaming is painfully slow . Even slower than 256 kbps

I dont think its a malware problem since the same thing is happening in linux and on wifi . it took me 20+ minutes to download a 5 mb app from the appstore

These are my modem stats :

Tried switching modulation between ADSL2+ and G.DMT , changing DNS etc . nothing worked .

Your line stats appear to very good, maybe your problem is only a illusion of urself and not a problem in real sense.

Your line stats are really good... do you live near the exchange or what? i mean they are really good ... see i guess must be a internal mtnl problem... i suggest you stick with the same settings... but if you want you can try ADSL2+ modulation mode... thats what i use..

I suggest you use some kind of network monitor to display your speed during usage. Something is most likely choking your bandwidth and that something has greater priority than the browser but lower than the download manager.I would say download and install the latest version of Advanced System Care. It now includes a network monitor which is pretty decent and shows the bandwidth used by different applications in realtime.

I am pretty sure its a real problem , connections outside India are totally fcked up .

I live 250 mtrs from the exchange . Already tried all modulations . I guess ill write an email to these morons

try to use opendns
Tried that too . and mtnl's own dns also .

I am using a network monitor , that's where the screenshots are from . I dont think its an issue of priority because if a download a file which doesnt support multiple threads (say -- link removed -- free) even from the download manager i get very low speeds (10-15kBps)

I hope its not linked to http://broadbandforum.in/bsnl-broadband/62499-inter-net-speed-very-slow/

okay @manu1991 http://www.speedtest.net

this is odd... see one problem with having speedtest's on intl servers is that with the hop... your bandwidth decreases... and specially dont post a speedtest.net result as many times their results are not accurate... (system is buggy / server is not upto the mark) hence i suggest speedtest on these links :

1. MTNL site : http://202.159.230.232:8888/speed/index.jsp
2. BSNL site : karnataka.bsnl.co.in/bandwidthmeter/initialmeter.php

and also technically you have no right to complain to them ... since till the ISP node you are getting quite good speed...
i am not taking sides... just stating the facts.. here but i suggest you seek some help from personnel high up in MTNL....

and lol if you live 250m away... just give a whacking to the broad(hah!)band GM

Sorry I missed those monitor screenshots. I am sure you are also aware that Speedtest results are also skewed by other downloads taking place at the same time. So all other net activity needs to be turned off during the test.Have you done the MTNL speed test suggested by auroraPWN?
