that is regarding mobile broadband service. in case of fixed broadband service they agree with the draft clauses

minimum broadband speed has never applied on wireless connections to the best of my knowledge.

they are clearly aiming for wired broadband customers from what i see.

Ensure that download speed of broadband service provided to the fixed broadband
subscriber is not reduced below 64 kbps in case of Fair usage broadband tariff
plan after expiry of assigned data quota of the customer.

got confused with "limited plans". they are not giving limited data plans on fixed broadband service from long time now. they have "limited plans" only on mobile

Too bad I forgot to mention how Airtel etc are using crappy fup speeds to sell top up plans at highly inflated prices.

Reliance's Views on FUP aren't much different. It wants TRAI to allow providers to throttle the speed limit as per their wish post FUP because again, misuse of the 512Kbps.

Never knew one can misuse a connection at this speed in 2016.
