Saw posters just now in Chennai (Teynampet area)

Called up the number. They are covering entire Mylapore now. Surroundings (Adyar, Besant Nagar etc to be covered in a month). Rest of Chennai soon after... So, lets see...

I was hoping for a FUP between 125-150GB.
I'm looking at this plan - ACT Supreme :25Mbps @ Rs. 1,299 with 75GB.
I use a little over 100GB every month, so 75GB is not enough for me & the next plan is too much for me (ACT Exclusive: 50 Mbps @ Rs. 3,249 with 250 GB).

uberjon - Could you do a speedtest with speedof.me or one to a NYC based server? A pingtest (pingtest.net) would be great as well :)

Thanks uberjon. Airtel's international connectivity seems to be more consistent...I get 6-8Mbps to Singapore/New York. But, this is better than I expected after reading earlier reviews. When they do come to Nungambakkam, I'll have to give them a try :)

yeah even i need over 75GB. but 3249 is too costly.
Maybe they need to make a plan like 125-150GB at 2000Rs
