Is it just me or BSNL has capped their 1099 Unlimited 3G plan to only 5GB/Day?

I am getting 10kbps download speed for last 4-5 days after reaching 5GB download mark.

Edit: After multiple tests on multiple sim cards, it's all pretty much confirmed that BSNL has capped their 1099 plan's download to 10GB/Day.

Anyone on this forum facing the same issue or is it just me? Let me know.

Edit:
May 2018 update: It seems BSNL has completely ditched the 10GB per day limit. This alongside 84 days of validity is just other worldly kind gesture from BSNL. For someone who doesn't have access to proper broadband this is a blessing.

Same problem here, speed reduced to zero after 10GB. Called C.C. They are clueless as usual.

In Rs. 444 90 days plan, you will get 4x90 = 360 GB .
In Rs 1099 30 days plan, you will get 30x10 = 300 GB

Customers who are paying just double will get less....what a logic

Edit: BSNL's new Rs. 549 plan has 10 GB FUP, 30 days validity

10gb per day on 3g is huge that too on 3g network... better use this plan wisely than misusing it.
Without doubt 10gb per day is great.
But what BSNL is doing right now is called False Advertising.
We were not informed to the slightest that this plan will change like that.
All of their websites are still showing 1099 plan as 'Unlimited bandwidth without speed restrictions'.

I wouldn't mind paying premium for an unlimited 3g Plan either, just don't fool your customers like that by outright lying to their faces.

Now I know, Why BSNL 3G had got stable 10Mbps+ speed since last week. Appreciable initiative but users should get promised benefit.

My monthly usage is less than 70 GB but a few days back i got some work related downloads of about 50 GB needed to be completed ASAP. So i recharged with 1099 even though my 444 plan had one more month remaining.But after about 12 GB speeds have become like dial up. Hovering between 10 KB/s to 13 KB/s.

I get 1 MB/S at night but during the day even if i do not consume 10 GB/day i dont get more than 100 KB/s during day time . I use D link 157 data card.

I from haryana and facing the same issue in this BSNL plan Of Rs 1099 that whenever I use this plan and consume beyond 10 gb in a day the speed of the of the internet drops to 78 kbps for about 24 hrs and after that the speed comes back to normal speed.

I think they changed their plan in the month of August

All of you guys are right. I too did some speed tests and the capping is done after 10 gb. Customer care is clueless as usual. Only thing in their hands is to generate a complaint number.

Is there anything we all can do about it ?
Complain somewhere else may be ?
