I think they do this. Coz my connection was awfully slow. But once the clock turned 12:05am then I got my regular speeds back. There is something really mysterious about this...

Something strange is happening today, I've just been using Internet Download Manager and it totally turbo charges the BSNL speeds, I get 50 kb/s only on 256 kbps speed :). Unfortunately though, the data transfer completely shuts down after like 15 minutes of downloading. So I think those frauds at BSNL are upto something like this, I think they're even trying to control our downloading in Nighttime Unlimited.

if airtel gives me speeds they promise, i had be more than happy. i get 60% of the promised speeds. they are reliable... sure. but when in the morning u get slower than dialup speeds occassionally, u would be more than unhappy. i still wont call them frauds. ;)
