How do u fuse 2 connections together? can it speed up downloading of a single large file? wat abt surfing speed, does that get increased as well?

You cannot increase normal surfing speed..only things which can have more than 1 connection..like in a download accelerator..you can take full advantage of it..or even in limewire and bittorrent..I read it on another site..not sure if i can post it here..check your PM

Thanks man ! i tried doing the same during dial up days using two modems but it didnt work.This NU plan from MTNL is good but the problem is that a person has to stay awake till 12 to switch on the CPE. He cant just schedule the download to start after 12 thru software - somebody got a huge bill when he did that , i think it was coolbuddy.BTW, what is this safe custody charge mentioned on MTNL's website for all its ADSL plans ?Those speeds that u ppl are reporting for NU are quite less. U are losing out on complete 56 kbps. What do u attribute it to ? - Inferior quality of telephone lines ? The ADSL technology implemented by MTNL ? or distance from exchange ?

no problems dude!I was getting around 27-28k/s at nite from MTNL..We don't get full speeds because MTNL has synced us at 256kbps..and I think since its ADSL around 10% is lost in transmission..they should really sync us at more than 256kbps..like Verizon in USA sync its 3mbps customers at 3300 instead of 3000..The inferior quality phone lines and distance from exchange should come into play if we try to get higher speeds..256kbps is too less for ADSL2+ anyway..Waking up after 12 is a pain as you mentioned and I think at MTNLs mumbai website it isnt even mentioned that we should switch on CPE after 12 and shut it off before 8..maybe its not required in mumbai..but who can take a chance..They should really extend the 12 to 8 plan..should be 10pm to 8am..

ADSL 2+ can hold upto 8 mbps according to what I know, technology comes late to India but its always more advanced. Most places in the US are yet on adsl 1 technology.
