Ok..I'm on the 128kps unlimited connexion Use beetel USB modem and I used to get 128/128 on the green arrow thingie in the taskbar area.. Today when I noticed I saw 512/512!! :blink: :eek: How's that ? Even after I connect I get connected - 512kbps.DSL speed tests on the net however show only a 128kbps connexion :(I see the download speeds on an average have increased but not to the level of a 512kbps line :(. Still on an avg. I used to get 15KB/s.. now I get close to 20KBPS ! :) (Even on BT)!!Any other users seeing the change?btw, I'm from Chennai

Yea, I noticed. I left azureus run uncapped for some days now for something like this to happen, and it did! I am still downloading some sucky torrents and the max I was getting of them has been around 50KBps. After I finish this, I will start the big torrents :)

they have upgraded only the connection speed to 512kbps. when tested at the speed.touchtelindia.net the bandwidth shown is 251, 249, 254 which means 31.6KB/sec. :angry:

the CC confirms that now they have upgraded the connection speed only and the customers will get enhanced speed to 20% more than their earlier speeds. the bandwidth upgradation will be gradual, may take some 2 to 3 months after they finalise the change in plans. for the time being the plans remain as it is.
in my case i used to get 26 to 28KB/sec, now it is touching around 32KB/sec.
i think in a weeks time it may stabilise to 35- 38 KB/sec.

even when everything goes well i doubt achieving 64KB/sec. It can touch only 54 to 55KB/sec only. :unsure:

when these levels are acheived video on demand will become reality :rolleyes:
