Yep, 0.8 mbps is definately NOT an anomaly. It's more like the norm.

Wait, are the 8mbps plans available in Chennai? I am assuming you're from Chennai because the speedtest says you're located less than 50 miles from the Chennai server.

Yes. It's available in Chennai. I've got Rapid plus 75GB for Rs. 2150. If your attainable line rate is good, then you can get it too.

I don't see it on the Airtel website and when I e-mailed them earlier this month, they said the 8mbps plans aren't available in Chennai. A couple of days back, I even got a call from Airtel and when I asked about faster plans than 4mbps, I was told that there are no such plans at present and that they will be available soonish. What's the highest datacap available on 8mbps plan and how much does it cost in Chennai?

Yes, unfortunately these plans are not on the website. Email them. Remember that calling CC is a hit/miss affair.I knew they had it in Chennai when a user from another forum posted his 8mbps speedtest result.I emailed them on the 5th about this & they replied the same day, saying that these plans were available.The highest is 150GB @ Rs. 2550.
