the problem with airtel fellows is they continue to say its broadbandin reality when i called their call center to know what will be the exact spped i will be getting they say you will get upto 256kbps and speed more than 180kbps is garenteed. now the basic question is how they say its broadband when TRAI has clearly stated that broadband as >256 kbps not speeds upto 256kbps

Hmm but atleast Airtel gives the speeds it offers. In over 6 months I've got max speeds all the time so I wouldnt complain about Airtel and their speeds.But I will complain about their pricing and plans ;)

they gave two actual unlimited plans with no conditions. sounds like good plans to me. what they lack is a 256kbps unlimited package which they can sell for like 1500 bucks a month. i had like that if that happens.

Airtel 8 Mbps 'Unlimited'
This is a real crap plan... Rs. 30 an hour??? That's ridiculous.....Apart form the two home unlimited plans, the other good thing that Airtel has is the Rs. 50 upgrade for unlimited night downloading for the 256kbps connections......The problem with this package is that it assumes that dial-up users will continue to use the internet the way they do even after getting a substantially faster connection...... which really is only the case with someone who barely knows how to open internet explorer and check his/her hotmail...... any personal with average computer skills would want to do a lot more with his connection once he/she sees the speeds, and will find the price forbidding to do anything more than an hour of surfing or so everyday..... (even an hour of surfing everyday works out to be Rs. 900 for the month!!!!).....basically another case of ISPs not looking long-term or aiming high, much less forget what's good for the customers.......

Why do you always defend Airtel. Just because you have one connection and are happy with it ? Even if you are a consumer of the same you have the right and should criticise them when ever you feel they are just going off track.....
