Hi guys, I was wondering if the MTNL TriB Plan is really a broadband, cuz I think as per TRAI guidelines connections with speeds 256 or above are broadband connections. And we usually get speeds under 256 ( on an average I m getting 29 KBPS i.e. 232 Kbps) Just curious about it.

MTNL provides dedicated bandwidth of 256kbps..but it really depends how far ur house id from the exchange...In my case, my house is about 3-4kms from exchange..but i still get in excess of 256kbps..I get download spead of 32.5KBps constant...:-D

whitelotus u r really lucky :D

Actually I know that I can't expect much better in india and ADSL 2+ is the most advanced tech. MTNL is using.. but point I wanted to make that acc. to TRAI guidelines a broadband connection must have constant speeds of 256 Kbps or over.

But here we r under 256... so isn't my point valid :p

according to TRAI..the company which provides speed more 256kbps or more can be termed as a broad band provider..

MTNL is providing u a complete bandwidth of 256kbps and nothing less..

but the problem is ur house may be too far from the exchange..thats y u r not getting full d/l speed..

TRAI dosent care wat d/l speed u r getting in ur home...it just checks that whether the service company is providing u complete bandwidth or not...which in case MTNL is providing

u must hav noticed other cable companies like SIFY..HOTWIRE..etc use the term
UPTO 128kbps connection,..what it means??..it means..u will never get complete bandwidth..in my case..i had 64kbps connection..but got only 50kbps bandwidth...

But u can see all MTNL advertisment...they have never used the word..upto
all their advertisment states their bandwidth is 256kbps..which is in complete accord with TRAI's requirement..
GOT my point? B)

I have 256 Kbps NU plan. I have never got a speed less than 46 KBps so far. And the average is around 55 KBps. I think my exchange is real good. Although it is 3 kms from my home. I hope to get this speed always.
