Hi Guys,I am currently on MTNL Triaband NU plan but due to heavy usage of net, I am forced to move to some conneciton which provides me unlimited usage of net.Now I quite liked the Airtel's Home 999 plan but the only thing which keeps me thinking is, contention ratio 1:2.So just wanted to know:- The speed variations from the ones who are already using it. - Does it go below 20 - 25 kbps? - Does the speed in night and day vary much?- Upload speeds, are they capped?ThanksDeep

@Deep here are the answers to your questions:--> The speeds you can expect on home 999 plan are Download speeds - Max:27KBPs Min:22KBps AVG:23-24KBps These speeds might apperar to be on the higher side given the contention rato, but these are the speeds that i am getting in Noida.Upload speeds - The upload speeds are constant around 25-28 KBps-->No it won't go below 20 KBps!-->I don't know about Mumbai but here in NCR there is doubling of Download speed during the night without any extra cost. The download speed at night goes upto 50-55KBps. The upload speeds remains the same.I am not sure if Airtel is providing Double speeds at night in Mumbai. Please check this with your local Airtel broadband office.-->Upload speeds are not capped i.e. upload speed=download speedIf you are a heavy downloader and Airtel is availble in your area, then i suggest you go for it with your eyes closed :)

Yes you get the speed simultaneously and you don't have to pause your downloads!

Hi,

May be its depends on Area.For company use cost will be different...They are giving 512kbps for 3 minths only. After airtel is giving only 384kbps only...

GP.:)
