mtnl 849 nu
I have a 849 NU plan Mumbai. Does anyone know if MTNL charges only for download or for upload also? My usage data taken from mtnl site shows that mtnl takes only downloaded data into accounted mb. If so can i seed torrents throughout the day and impove my upl/dl ratio for torrents and not have mtnl bankrupt me by adding backdated usage at the end of the month

Uploads are free except for subscribers having userid 2*******@(like [email protected]);But still why to take a risk?; upload during night hours only; simultaneous uploads and downloads will not only increase ur ratio, but ur torrent DL speed will also be boosted up!

For @a users, someone reported that on website it shows as counted but in ur bill its not counted. i.e. bill is based only on downloads

Amish, that is from this month. Till last month, @a users were billed even for uploads. 10 days back, they changed the interface, and now we have access to upload data as well as download data stats. Thus from this month, it is likely that @a users wont be charged for uploads.

yeah, my id too is a 2*******@a a/c. so that means only downloads count right. but they dont seem to have updated it on their tariff plan. knowing mtnl, wouldnt put it past them to switch back to charging for both u/ and d/l without any intimation. gotta watch it for atleast a month before taking the plunge.

Depends on which plan you are in.
