Its not fair that only new customers are getting 512kbps unlimited for a year who are subscribing 256kbps unlimited now for airtel connections. They should upgrade each and every customer aswell. Providing 512kbps for a year, thats like 1000x2x12 = Rs.24,000 for a year. Arent all of the old customers feel a bit cheated by airtel?

They cant handle the demand, so they only offer to new users that to for a yr only.And guess what how many "new" ppl will realise its only for a yr, the word on the street would be airtel offers 512k ultd, just like tata. (but it only works for half the month ;)

Well I also agree that Airtel is providing decent speeds these dayz but I'm still worried abt my plan coz once on torrents speeds don't cross 256kbps but direct downloads have speeds of even 83KB/s = 664kbps.. This worries me a lot but again the problem is solved so getting my speeds back.. ;)
