LETS get back on topic,
BSNL cuts BB fee by upto 75%, to worsen its service/quality???
Is that possible?
BSNL and MTNL are main culprits behind all this Broadband mess.
Any clue when we will truly be enjoying the "Broadband " the way its meant to be enjoyed in India ? Any hope of this happening in 2011 ?
Depends where in India you are.
Only 1 operater is providing truly broadband experience, i.e RELIANCE, even MTNL provides unlimited, but their quality as compared to RELIANCE sucks.
Ahhh, poor Sach92... thinking 1 or 2mbit/s is "true broadband"
Here our government is mandating minimum speeds of the new fiber network to be 100mbit/s down by roughly the same time as 2mbit/s becomes the mandated minimum in India... and we're just a tiny little 3rd world island.
Not only in wired connection but also in wifi field RELIANCE beats everyone, tata
's, MTS MBLAZE, bsnl etc.
Really? From what I've read, the most complained about is Netconnect+, particularly when it comes to speed. For MTS most complaints center around billing and things like that, not speed (as much).
But i know still ISP's in INDIA are quite expensive as compared to US.
US ISP,COMCAST gives fastest connection at just $29 (RS 1310.8).
Really? Who gives you this information? I've never seen Comcast give anything for that price, except for special deals.
I just checked the price in some typical suburban address in New Jersey, and after the first 6 months, the price goes to $33 for their most basic connection (not much difference, I grant you, however that price is only valid if you already subscribe to their cable TV
service, so you're already giving them $30 or more for that anyway). If you don't subscribe to Comcast Cable TV, that price after the special deal is $45 (and the minimum contract term is 12 months, with termination fees galore - just in case you think you could get out of it).
It pays to read the small print on these things.
When will we have good quality broadband & that also high speed at this rate.
I hate to say it, but probably never - unless most of India's content is moved from the US to India.
Did u see this forum, people r complaining about BSNL, like DNS
issues, certain sites not opening, and what not.
But u r one lucky person if u r not having any major issues.
Says the person begging me to give him free wifi when his beloved Reliance goes down!
BSNL .. customer n technical service problem is there but they never loot the customer .. due to them broadband is become affordable for common man ...
I think the "affordable" is an illusion. 75% reduction = good, but still too much, especially for their common customer. They're still charging ~Rs200 more than it costs them per GB, and I can't honestly believe that this is even remotely close to what it costs them per GB to deliver. I'm confident that they could get away with another 75% reduction and still do well. It might encourage people to use more, too.
