Not yet as I have to still finish my 2 months 128 kbps night unlimited pack. I wonder why they have reduced the 12 hours to 10 hours for night browsing on the 256 kbps packs. Pretty inconvinient :-( Also, they seem to have discontinued the 128 kbps night pack in some cities.It is obvious why the reduced the hours of the night pack. Those who use the night pack for some browsing mostly do so during that first and last hour and 256 kbps is too high a speed to let people use too much

Here are the results of a speed test that I did on the 20th of Feb. They seemed pretty decent to me. I use a 128 kbps night unlimited pack and a 256 kbps/400 MB pack for the daytime browsing. However, I think Airtel has some good schemes now. Am now tempted to switch back. :)
