Hi guys,just wanted to confirm that whether all the ISP's including BSNL are having the same issue with slow/dead download speeds, because of ripping of undersea cable off Taiwan, due to a strong earthquake?Do post your feedbacks and expectations as when can we get things normal...thxkirty

I am getting 10K avg on my 256kbps Business 1200 plan. I am from Chennai. I thought I could begin the new year with a bang (2mbps). But it seems to be a whimper as of now. Where is this Taiwan cable problem info?

Very few Home 500 plan users are complaining abt the speed problem , where as almost all 900 users are, why?

These 4 days has been hell. On 29th Dec at abt 2.30 a.m. there was incredible speed. I got upto 170KBPS average though I was 3.5 km away from the exchange. During the following days the speed decreased considerably. Yesterday and today it was like dial up. Iam on Home 500 plan and eagerly awaiting the day atleast a stable 1 MBPS is provided. :(If any body know pls let me know...What is that Warn:(0%) symbol on the left side of my post?

Hi Guys,I dont know abt the cables but i called up the BSNL guys today mornin... I was gettin speeds as low as 4-5kbps durin night and 10-11kbps durin daytime.. So i called them, they said tat this was abnormal and that they will check from their end.. They called back after a few mins and asked me to check the speed, so i dounloaded a 200MB file using BitLord torrent and i was gettin speeds aroun 28 to 33 variable and thought that the problem was fixed.. But once again tonight my speeds hav dropped to 9 to 10 kbps.. I am gonna call up those guys once again tomorrow and hang around until this gets fixed... The guy told me that mine was the 3rd low speed complaint that he received today.. So i think the speed decrease is around...
