hmm interesting... My BSNL sim in my Iphone when used in Mumbai on MTNL network returns 1-1.5Mbps speed so I dont think the speed is capped to 384Kbps...

Agree with Amish.

Please try using your SIM in another 3.5G or HSPA+ supported handset. Alternatively if you have a handset which indeed supports higher speeds (peaking 3.6 Mbps or 7.2 Mbps) try a SIM card from any of these service providers: Airtel, Vodafone & Reliance (3G license winners of Mumbai Circle).

Hope this helps. All the best!

I am using iPhone 4 which is HSDPA 7.2 Mbps capable.

Hmm I read somewhere in the MTNL 3G section here that u have to get hsdpa activated from MTNL seperatly by paying either Rs50 or Rs500(not sure which is the correct amount)... Thank god I dont have to do this on BSNL

He said he is using an Iphone 4 which can reach 7.2Mbps max... I myself am currently an Iphone 4 right now in mumbai & getting 1.5Mbps on the MTNL network but using a BSNL sim

I put the same sim in HSDPA stick and speed still remains at 384 kbps. There is some configuration on MTNL's side which is capping speeds.

Even I'm fed of this 384kbps cap of MTNL on 3G. I had sent a message ACT HSDPA to 444 but nothing happened.

@rajadeep: On activation of HSDPA Rs.449 will be deducted from your balance & you will get 449MB with a validity of 1 month.
