Hi all,I wanted to know how is the 256Kbps plan with 1Gb bandwidth cap? How are the speeds and its only 550Rs. For me speed is more important as I dont surf more than 20MB a day. Any help will be appreciated.

I mean i listen to online radio and do a apt-get on my ubuntu box, and do a lot of mailing and ofcourse do my cvs checkouts. For this i realised i dont do more than 20-50Mb each day. I dont download movies or stuff. So, i was just wondering how good is the 256Kbps pack?

i don't think its the full day plan........... its 256K Night Unlimited @ Rs.545.I currently use it........Browsing speed -----> Frankly speaking, I could not see any difference, I still have to refresh a couple of times.Downloading Speed -----> I get around 28-30kBps. 30kBps is the max I get.It works only for 10 hours, i.e. from 10PM to 8AM.But in comparison to the 128K Night Unlimited Pack, which is almost of the same price, it rocks.In case you ppl are wondering......... yes 128k nite pack is still available in chandigarh. Officially, the 256K nite pack is not available in chandigarh. But the CTOs are giving it to select special customers. Dunno, if they've started selling em openly now. But if you check out the price list, theres no 256K pack for chandigarh.EDIT:n yeah, absolutely no caps!!

How should i know?!! All I know is that, yeah my CTO has given me the connection while he has refused it to many others.Thats the reason I neva fought with my CTO, always abused the SifyCC.N now my decision is paying off!! ;)Give it a try, ask ur CTO.
