Sometimes my 32+ unlimited connection gave me 2 kbps but this happened infrequently. So I checked my cable, moved it around it bit disconnected and reconnected and still nothing but after doing it enough times (which took me about 1 and half hour) I once again regained 7.7 KBps but I noticed that when you reach the 75 MB cap it goes to 2.9 KBps which can't be helped. Anyway those of you with insanely slow connections check your cable it may be damaged.The story of how my cable was damaged is quite intresting too, maybe another time......

well that s*cks. a point to be highlighted...

Here is the point. I was told by Mr. Satinder Singh that Sify mentions the 75megs limit on shared packages on the website. I failed to find it. So, before you guys tell me that I am getting slower speeds coz I have downloaded more than 75megs on a particular day... I had like you to show me the package page with the 75megs a day limit mentioned.

I hope, this is not an unreasonable demand. You cannot hide this particular bit of information from a customer who thinks he is buying an UNLIMITED DOWNLOAD AND TIME DURATION package. Just a link from your website would work.

regards,

the above was my latest mail to sify people.

Hi, No , there is 75 MB cap I was surfing the web at the speed of 7.7 KBps in the morning.my package is 32+ kbps unlimited. In the noon i was download a tamil movie using bittorrent. At the beginning of the download i was getting the speed between 6.4-9.6 KB. When it reached the downloaded amount around 60 MB something it was download at the speed of 2.7 KB. I tried to logout and login wishing i will get the original speed, but i was no use.For me 75 MB cap is true.

Even so they should have mentioned it on their master price list here
