umm. they are forcing all the people to upgrade to netxpert. just tell them you dont want it. if they still insist. tell them you would get the connection disconnected and you would move to bsnl/mtnl.they are not watching you. they are just being told to install it on all their customer's machines.

Few months back, with the Airtel Bill there was this booklet that Airtel distributed. In that they promoted stuff like limewire, kazaa and explained what torrents are, also giving the urls to various torrent search sites. I am not really sure whether they are monitoring illegal downloads. I guess you can carry on, if there is some monitoring going on they would warn you before they charge you

There was a thread discussing this. It was about how Airtel promoted p2p downloads. Cant find it though. And it was recd with my bill, so I had to see with my own eyes

All i can say is that you are not in the USA! There is no MPAA or RIAA that will hunt you down with their bogus lawsuits. If they were so bothered about pirates in India, Nehru Place or for that matter Palika Bazaar are better places to find people and that too find them with enough evidence to support their case. Your speeds getting back to normal in an hour or so odd indeed, but to know what data is being sent over an RC4 encrypted stream is not worth the effort trying to decode it and then only halve the speed after that? why not simply disconnect you instead?. I suggest you call Airtel and complain about the speed issue and put your fears to bed. :lol:
