UPDATE:..
dont go for iptv in delhi if you want 2mbps...
your speeds will be reduced to 256kbps if you take iptv in delhi...
(this info will be updated on mtnl's delhi site shortly)

the mumbai folks who are already getting 2mbps with iptv(even more in most cases) is dude to some issues which mtnl is facing there... but their speeds too will be limited to 256kbps in the future

i went to kidwai bhawan today.. so that is the source of the info...and the reason is that they don't want to provide 5mbps bandwidth.... for iptv+broadband

Reducing to 256 will that be enough for IPTV+Broadband? :eek:If it happens to be true their IPTV will have no takers, maybe some uninformed BABU gave you such unjustifiable information.....

arrey your line sync will still remain 3mbps... but out of that you will be only able to use 256kbps for internet

i dont think so that they wud do that.as in mumbai, minimum speed is (upto) 2mbps. all plans with 256k are now gone (even NU is now 2mbps)

I am sure they won't do that............If they do, they would effectively kill IPTV business before it even becomes popular.Imagine when they tell customers if u want IPTV your internet speed will be reduced to 256 from 2Mbps, the customer will simply say give me Triband @2Mbps and keep IPTV for urself...... :rofl:

yes, i was talking abt the free channels on the net which can be seen by mtnl's stb

Mr Ankit u have got ur concepts mixed up..free channels on the net are streaming channels..u pay for them and watch them on ur PC itself..no MTNL STB involved..and as far MTNL stb is concerned it will have only those channels which the headend of MTNL pulls down from the satellite and then encodes into MPEG2 (or other compressed format)and beams it thru ur tel. phone wire..and this beam is contained in a differnet channel on ur line..if u see ur modem is capable of supporting upto 8 different channels (DSL 502T) called PVC's (permanent virtual circuits) each with different VPI and VCI values which are used to transmit different services on the same wire like IPTV and BB..

and as fas as the speed issue is concerned IPTV will have an effect on net speed unless sync rate is increased..i have experienced IPTV abroad and the speed used to drop by 1 mbps from 6 to 5 when TV was on..
