@popcorn....YESTERDay i was in csc of cst mumbai...and they have confirmed.....that they are upgrading to cat12 revision....which is 21 mbps line...This might sound stupid....but i actually saw fibre lines made of manganese and copper alloy...Which are used for high frequency applications.....HIGH BIT RATE = HIGH FREQUNCY...I havnt seen any of those lines in any operator...i hav been to bsnl...in nagpur and aircel in chennai.....and i havnt seen qny of those lines there.....Actually i said ur bluffing to the guy at the CSC but lol....he was a damn serious guy....he asked one of his teckie to take me to the main office...which is a km away....and was shocked to see the reaction of the CSC guy and the lines as well lol.....I askd about other areas also n he said...he dunno about the other areas....because he said only old mumbai is undr their jurisdiction....but he said they might wel be upgrading...but i said wen did mtnl split up...and he said it alwez used to be this way.....(and i thought theres a fight between MTNL and NEW MTNL :p) jus confirm wid ur CSC if they are really upgrading...???Because as a techomat...those lines are indeed used for high frequency,so hith bit rates...and i can say more than cat9 rev A....that is above 7.2mbps.....for belw these data rates only aluminium fibres are used....i have seen that....

----------

they are doing this to bring more competition in market as other companies are looting users of 3g

Thank God for the heavy rains yesterday, otherwise I would have got my 7.2mbps dongle yesterday! Now with this great news from volcano619 and confirmation by Harsh_Thanvi, I'll be getting a 21.6mbps dongle today. It will cost almost twice, but I guess it will be worth it when they upgrade to 21.6mbps speeds! Thank God again that I saw this thread before leaving. I was just about to leave in 15mins and thought to check the forums!

Thank you all for helping out.

Since Jan 2009 mtnl had 3G services. Till June 2011 they were the worst 3G service providers.
As soon as they faced competition of just 2 months, they suddenly became the best 3g provider in Mumbai.

----------

As soon as they face a 21mbps competition, then only they will upgrade it to 21 mbps speeds
so dont invest in that dongle for future proofing.
