Thats old news. Currently in banglore they dont have the double speed offer for thier 256kbps package , its applicable only for the 128kbps package...so enjoy

hey guys, I am on 256 kbps unlimited downloads speed, since 11 am this morning my bandwidth has increased to almost double -- getting about 50 to 55 kB/s speeds..i thought it was a momentary surge, but it went on without any dip in speed. Since then i was disconnected once - but on reconnecting i got the same doubled speed..I am hoping that airtel have introduced 512 kbps at the same rate 256 was at...dont want to call the call center to ask for obvious reasons. Any of you guys in bgalore got this ?

I'm in Mumbai on 128/128 but since yesterday I've been getting a good 60kBps constant. Probably some glitch with their servers

Ppl in Delhi and adjoining areas experienced similar spikes a while back. This can't be a coincidence. The airtel guys are upto something. Free upgrade to 256k/512k respectively from July onwards maybe? Don't forget, they doubled the speeds only last year and that was in July (if am not mistaken) too ;)

Funnily enough i got disconnected a number of times last cpl of days, had not been DLing anything atm so can't really say if speeds were better than usual.

Yup back to normal. But there has definately been some change in their bandwidth allocation coz now I'm getting 18kBps (on my 128 kbps connection) instead of the 16 kBps I used to get earlier. Thats more like it!!! I'm getting what I paid for :D
