1)For music and sometimes movies use limewire its a simple to use p2p s/w2)For Movies and Games use torrents, people say azureus or utorrent is better than bit-comet but i still use bicomet coz it works fine for me also i get max speed on bitcomet which i don't on azureus and utorrent (even after port forwarding etc)

Well dewd if this makes ur pain ease away a little...i had an Airtel connection booked last September. Every time they say airtel will be available in the next week....they always dump me. I mean if Airtel was a chick...then by god i will run as hell from her.False Promises,Lies And Ditchin...is Airtel's speciality. So my advice to u dewd....dont hope for any miracles soon. AIrtel has more consumers than it can afford so dont expect anythin in a snap.

Perpetual confusion between KBps and Kbps

128 kbps = 16 KBps, so if u are getting 8-10 kbps then there is a problem whereas if its 8-10 KBps then its ok.

Eternity man..infact answer could be never"..they have been 50 metres from my place for the past 3-4 yrs still not ready to wire my home or the neighbourhood. Unbundling of the local loop is wat is reqd..thats the key to our BB problems
