Hi Guys,I am currently on MTNL Triaband NU plan but due to heavy usage of net, I am forced to move to some conneciton which provides me unlimited usage of net.Now I quite liked the Airtel's Home 999 plan but the only thing which keeps me thinking is, contention ratio 1:2.So just wanted to know:- The speed variations from the ones who are already using it. - Does it go below 20 - 25 kbps? - Does the speed in night and day vary much?- Upload speeds, are they capped?ThanksDeep

@Deep here are the answers to your questions:--> The speeds you can expect on home 999 plan are Download speeds - Max:27KBPs Min:22KBps AVG:23-24KBps These speeds might apperar to be on the higher side given the contention rato, but these are the speeds that i am getting in Noida.Upload speeds - The upload speeds are constant around 25-28 KBps-->No it won't go below 20 KBps!-->I don't know about Mumbai but here in NCR there is doubling of Download speed during the night without any extra cost. The download speed at night goes upto 50-55KBps. The upload speeds remains the same.I am not sure if Airtel is providing Double speeds at night in Mumbai. Please check this with your local Airtel broadband office.-->Upload speeds are not capped i.e. upload speed=download speedIf you are a heavy downloader and Airtel is availble in your area, then i suggest you go for it with your eyes closed :)

nice. i am still paying 1700 for the 512kbps plan :(airtel is evil when it comes to offering discounts to people on slower plans.
