still down. excitel is so smooth at this time of the night. i had forgotten how smooth web browsing could be :D
i guess i would use excitel as primary and configure abs as the failover network. Rs. 2500 wasted on ABS.

I am amazed how bad they have configured their network, fiber etc. Fiber to home should work without any hiccup but here it is even worse than excitel which works via Lan wire from node.

ABS is incredibly fucked up right now. DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NO_INTERNET everywhere!
I had the exact same problem with tripleplay however not that severe as yours is. The dataserver guy(so calleD) told me that this is called "multicast packet drop" or something like that. and they even called huawei network team to fix it, they did fix it however the issue came back in 3 days. This has to be a problem specifically in Gurgaon with major ISP's like tripleplay, excitel, ABS and whatnot with a same backbone i.e TATA COMMUNICATIONS.

that is why India ranked 89th out 149 nations in internet speeds because no uniformity whereas in australia the fastest internet speed is 40 Mbps but that is all over the country so they ranked 50th

It is the same everywhere, one has to live in a very densely populated country like Japan, South Korea or Singapore to have crazy high speeds everywhere. In Australia, only in a few big cities can you get decent internet, the rest of the country is literally deserted. But yes, I get the point you are making as well, some day we shall have it too. ;)
