hii could not find out if airtel provides static ip.i go on private trackers and would like a static ip.please helpalso what are the torrent speeds in south delhibith download and upload...can i request for a specific modemthanks
Why would you need a static ip for private trackers? If anything it'll be less secure since ur ip is there for anyone in the swarm to see and it will be easier for sites to ban your ip if they wish to (besides other obvious drawbacks of having a static ip). The only plus point is that it's easier to set up a web-server. But then how many ppl require that and if am not mistaken, ppl here have done it even with dynamic ip's.If you're worried you won't be 'connectable' on private trackers and that you require a static ip to forward ports; then you're mistaken coz it's possible even with dynamic ip's and fairly simple at that. Been using private trackers with a dynamic ip setup for a while without any snags.
[thanks a lotfor the informationany users from south delhi who can comment on speedalso static ip helps ensure lesser waiting times on -- link removed -- i know someone with dynamic ip who has problems unless using a proxy..i do not have a airtel yet and planning to move to itso these questions.

It's quite the opposite actually. Rapishare (free downloads) places restrictions on usage by detecting the users ip and enforcing wait times between downloads and disallowing concurrent downloads from the same ip. So if u have a static ip, you'll be forced to wait an hour or so between downloads whereas with a dynamic ip you can simply power cycle the modem to get a new ip and continue downloading.
As regards speeds in South Delhi, well it depends on what plan you opt for:
Home 699 (upto 128kbps) - 12-14kBps (Day) / 23-26kBps (Night)
Home 999 (upto 256kbps) - 22-27kBps (Day) / 50-55kBps (Night)
Speeds are doubled at night (10:50pm-6:50am) for the above plans; both of which come with unlimited data transfer. Upload speeds are around the same, except they're not doubled at night for the Home 999 plan if am not mistaken.
thanks a lotlooks like gonna get airtelhotwire used it for 2 years nowand they also started throttling speedsso no point paying more for a service which is available cheaper from airtelany other suggestions welcome...
