I may have started off a very hopeful thread. but a few of us have heard from various resources that this could be true..I myself was asking for a 512 kbps unlimited plan..the cc told me that this will be addressed before the 15th..it's no fluke that certain areas experienced increase in speeds.

Heh you are thinking they will upgrade all 256k's to 512k for the same price ?like they did 128k to 256....heh that would indeed be fantastic, but question i ask you is why ?Who else is offering 512k unlimted at those prices ? I don't see any significant competition yet in the 256k space let alone the 512k space.When the rest start offering 256k unlimted for the same price as Airtel..then we can look forward to 512k from Airtel.

I read in another forum that you have to restart your modem to get those speeds

I got those high speeds for a day or two, and then now it's back to normal for the last two days... 256 in the day and 512 at night. Resetted my modem a bunch of times - no effect.
