I was expecting somewhere b/w 1-2 GB at 256 kbps in Rs 500-600 price band.....this was wat they hinted a month ago....and now wat.....They want to usher the broadband revolution in india....similar to mobile revolution....Wud mobile rev have occured had if u wud have got 5 minutes as talktime with Rs 300 recharge coupon ?Believe me , MTNL's DSL is gonna flop bocz price cud have been the only attractive factor...and they have lost on it....and MTNL is already known for its poor servicve

mtnl has DSL. the technology is better[/b]

I want to know if the telephone line is noisy or if parallel lines are connected....do that affect ADSL's speed???

Also MTNL says its using ADSL 2 technology....wat's that???
