I would gladly pay Rs. 3000 (inclusive of taxes of course) for a 4mbps plan with 300GB data transfer limit. How about you?

Well, right now I can pay 3000 bucks for a 4mbps plan even with 75GB FUP only if its available in Pune! Airtel has only 2mbps as highest speed connections in Pune :(

lol. there is very little you gain when you switch from 2mbps to 4mbps if you are happy with a 75GB FUP limit. :)

I am ready to pay that much for the limits you mentioned, but then Airtel has to stop the throttling and blocking of torrent sites. Else it's no use for me..

lol. now that is something hard to expect from airtel. :) of course the throttling and the blocks are a nuisance but i have come to realize that a private vpn has become more of a necessity than a convenience. governments around the world are succembing to corporations to restrict the freedom of speech on the net and of course access to web services like torrents.

I am not a techie and though I have heard about VPN's I don't quite understand the technology behind this. So in lay man's language, does by using this are you able to get around the throttling and blocking 100%? Is there no way Airtel can know that some heavy data transfer is happening in one particular account (albeit encrypted), and they try to throttle it?

VPNs are not illegal. Indian companies also use VPN for employees working from their homes. So basically you access the internet through your corporate servers enabling you to access data that is not available over the regular internet. VPN basically connects your internet through an international IP and all the data passes through it. Airtel cannot really do anything about it because it is not illegal and it would probably make the connection unusable for a lot of corporate folks working from homes.But yea, they probably can block access to VPN servers which would suck of course. But you gotta do what you gotta do. :confused:

lol. got a message from airtel highlighting the 2500 rupee plan with 8mbps speeds with 150GB limit. told them that speed is not the issue limits are considering the limitations in place on torrents and other online services.
