    Looks like BSNL is the worst choice in Kolkata. Today I was in my cousin's place and his ISP is AWESOME. He gets about 150ms for EU and 230ms for NA. I could play in both servers. It's called Meghbela/PMPL Broadband. If I can get that here then I will ditch the BSNL Dataone and only keep the phone for intercom etc. Will let you know when I know more.

    Sadly, it seems like I have reached a dead end. I contacted the Meghbela local operator and he said that they can't provide service in my area which falls under a different cable operator. That local operator of mine is associated with Alliance broadband - another shitty latency crapo. There's nothing I can do to get a different ISP via cable operators. And BSNL's latency has been dancing around 400-500ms sometimes, in the last few days. WHAT DO I DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO? :banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead:

    Well, I have got the PMPL connection. It's better, no doubt, but I have had mixed experience with it so far. The operator has used some cheap CAT 5e cables - a thin one with no shield, and there are no switches close to me. Probably that's why I am getting about 15-20ms more than what I saw at his place. He has asked for a few days and promised to rectify it. Currently the NA ping is near 245-252ms and EU about 180-190. I can play fine in EU, so that's good. Unfortunately, my "main" account is the US one and I really want THAT to work. I did manage a few PVP sessions in NA yesterday, but got kicked for latency half the time.

    Apparently I was too quick to jump the boat. It's the same story here at PMPL as well. The latency keeps going up and up and up. Sometimes I can't even play in eu because the latency gets too high and there are severe packet drops so I keep getting "hung" and disconnected from game. I wanna die :(

    After using the Meghbela / PMPL for a few months I can confidently assure you all that BSNL is a god to this piece of dog-shit. Sometimes the latency is under the acceptable limit, but most of the time it isn't. But the packet loss on this is un-friggin-believable. And it stays disconnected for days without anybody giving a shit. Steer clear, fellas.

    It will be unfair if I didn't post this awesome latencies. Unfortunately this happens VERY rarely, after hours of phone-calls etc.
