I was getting 10KBps, both on DUMeter and my downloading softwares like flashget, bitcomet, etc...Now, even though DUMeter shows 10KBps, the downloading softwares show at the most 6KBps!!!Dunno what is wrong...Anyone else here getting low speeds?It did rain like hell in the nights for the past 2 days here in Chennai...

DU Meter gives wrong reading all the time coz it takes into consideration the traffic flowing through the network card. download managers would give you better speeds than browsers coz they are made to extract the maximum available bandwidth. browsers are more generous in their sharing bandwidht with other available applications.

Bsnl with its stupid data caps, Sify with its insane data caps, Airtel with its 'Buy a phone line to get BB', and all the other players in the market claiming to providing BB with some catch....I must add TATA has crazy plans too and I aint supporting it either....i'd switch over to any other service provider who'll provide affordable UNLIMITED internet access...Can you suggest any such provider coolbuddy? :D i'm sure many people would be grateful if you could!!

i'm on MTNL right now and am quite satisifed with it...it's a true broadband!!!though with the proper billing in not place yet, i'm still have some second thoughts about it...i just got a bill of 7k when i'm not supposed to get anything more than 650 bucks for my connection...but am positive that it will get resolved soon...so if u're in Del or Mumbai, MTNL is the best bet for the time being!! :)
