Cheap bandwidth is no good as long as Sify doesn't pull up its service levels. Its service is being maintained consistently at pathetic levels, courtesy the numerous CTOs that give a damn for good service.

I actually read the whole paper now and it's very insightful. Thanks for the link Suraj.Now we have a definite idea of how the bandwidth market works and why for us in India till now, bandwidth is as expensive as gold while in other countries it's comparatively so much cheaper.At the bottom the paper also says that next in line would be the revision of the domestic bandwidth costs. So there's hope now, now that the regulators have turned their attention on the national internet service, atleast on the pricing side.
