Net users in London are to be offered broadband at speeds up to 24 meg as part of ambitious plans by a new UK ISP.

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2005/07/01/broadband_be/

In April 2001, Ivanovic bought fledgling Swedish ISP Bostream and launched 26 meg broadband. In three years the number of Bostream punters shot up from 2,000 to 100,000 with revenues rocketing from $1m to $55m.


Do we ever hope to get such speeds in here
if yes
Then in which century

Hey, I was going to post the same news! British Telecom is/was just like BSNL but after the british govt allowed private isp's to use BT's lines, broadband connections have taken off. From 128k to 256k in 2000 to 2mbit, 8mbit and now 26mbit.And here in India, the bsnl f@#%$^s are moving in the reverse direction. Jesus, no wonder we have been a developing country and will remain one for the rest of your lifetime.

Pakistan ... hardly the benchmark to compare with. We have to get over this mindset and work to claim our ancient leadership. This is our century ... make no mistake. In 'purchase price parity' our economy is fourth. Germany comes after us. Check out what the Economics Times has to say a few days ago. Our bandwidths will improve if we can lift the bottom 15% from D- status to D+ status. Poverty anywhere is a threat to prosperity everywhere. This is what the Bush cowboys are finding out from all over the world. We need not copy that and experience it. Find ways to get PURA .... Providing Urban aminities in Rural Areas. Think of means to make products and services affordable for the bottom of the pyramid. They consitute the largest market in the world. HLL and ITC are working at it. Make your contributions. Best wishes.

I had a talk with one of my friends who is at a high post in Satyam. He said that sify and most other providers like Hathway, tata all want to give 1 Mbps connections, but rules of TRAI are keeping them from doing that. I think, till our s...ing govt doesn't change rules, v are going to be bogged down with SNAILBAND

Even if sify can provide these 128 and 256 kbps connections with nice service, that would be really nice.Just providing high speed connections is of no use. The service should be appropriate. When in a 24 hrs period the connection remains down for 12hrs and more, what will a high speed connection bring.Also ask ur friend to forward to sify to remove these data limits.

What rule would prevent them from offering better services? There better be a darn good reason for that.
