Exatt's site has started...

And on the mainpage is this...

"Exatt has blocked all the Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) ports, due to the illegal termination of VoIP. All the providers with a legal VoIP license can purchase an interconnect with us, to forward their traffic to their legal provider. You can contact your Account Manager or franchisee for any further queries."

If that was not enough, they have also cut the download speeds; their schemes page in fact mentions that "Above rates are Base rates. All speeds are approximate." So in effect, cable operators are welcome to fleece us as they like and don't worry too much about speeds, just concentrate on paying them through the nose. You don't have to download anything; just keep on repeatedly downloading the PPPOE driver from their website and don't even surf, they have a very "pretty" webpage; just log on and keep staring at it.My 128 kbps unlimited connection has come down to 75 kbps, precisely from the 1st of Jan and that too after I did not download much in the previous weeks since it was holiday season and all major tv networks were also taking a break.We call ourselves the IT superpower and have to bear with such pathetic speeds and download limits while paying much more that our overseas counterparts.I look forward to the day when all these small fry have to shut shop when some mnc comes in and there is a glut of bandwidth. Pacenet, exatt, and all the others are just leeches.

hmm....in India the problem is that there isn't any competition in international bandwidth arena. We have only 3 players for such a massive country while European nations, for eg. France, have about 30-40 carriers on an average. I think France has 34.

Yeah, I noticed the dop in speeds too...browsing speed is pathetic, and even on good torrents, I rarely get more than 23-24 KBps... I really am thinking of switching to Airtel once it launches in Thane... :confused:I had a query-can you use two LAN cards...one for DSL and one for LAN(PPPOE) simlutaneously with different settings?

Is this really true? I mean even i noticed slow surfing speed on my 256kbps conn. but havnt dled anything for a while. If they have imposed bw curbs then dling stuff will be a huge problem. Is every exat user experiencing a bad dl speed?

Yep.... what's worse is upload speeds are consistently as high as 4x your connection speed, which is quite irrational...

Any lawyers in here? Can we sue them, since VOIP is part of what they promise during installation?
