Wow,if I get ping less than 100 (In chennai or Hyderabad) in Airtel/Voda ,I thought it was good (for wireless USB broadband).usually 100-150 is the best scenerio.Some one gave a link to Beam page and (too lazy to call them),I sent them a message (thro chat)asking them whether they have fiber running in my street/building! defenitely warming up slowly to Beam idea (10mbps first) Are you able to connect multiple Pc/notebook thro wireless router?Are you in Unlimited pack or better go thro a pack with defined FUP so that we get proper defined speed instead of slower unlimited?:beguiled:

The 15 Mbps planis known is for R 1500 / month you get 15 Mbps speed utpo 40GB after that its 4 Mbps unlimited see the video review I did for Beam it will answer most of your questions and yes it works without issues with Wifi routers and connecting multiple computers / devices.

Hi Ranjit,Actually I subscribed to Beam after watching your reviews on your Youtube channel! (By the way, great videos!) My download speeds are way under the much touted 15Mbps. I am getting 1.95 Mbps. However my upload speeds are more than 7 Mbps. The Beam Customer support said that the 15Mbps is the browsing speed and not d/l speed. I don't know what it means.

You will get the promised speeds soon. They were facing issues at some areas since last 72 hours. Mine is back online today after 48 hour downtime. If you received 2Mbps on 15 Mbps during this period, I would say you are very lucky :pMy speeds for a 10 Mbps connection was in the last 6 hours before being down completely earlier. Now that this is resolved, I am back on 10 Mbps.
