Hi there. I am SICK of MTNL's constant line troubles and intend to get Fivenet.
I have been offered Rs. 1800 for a month of 10 mbps internet.
A couple of questions:
1. Network maintenance by Ahura broadband. How is it?
2. What is the average speed that one gets?? I know 10 mbps is not possible.
3. Does the HUB work with a wireless router?
4. How is the downtime scenario????
5. Is it worth throwing MTNL and going in for Fivenet JUST for the stability and security of not having to deal with BABUS and the like??

2) from what i have seen it is usually around 6-8mbps3)yes. but if u have a old router then u will probably not get the full speed. on a wired line i get abt 80-88 mbps. on wireless it drops to 40-504)downtime is pretty much nonexistent5)i use mtnl as a backup line. just in case.

Damn, you guys have it good. Here in mulund, we have the shittiest local cable wala that provides fivenet's services. BTW, i had paid 7k for 12 months for 10mbps, thats before they hiked up their rates. Though, i could only squeeze out 350 kBps down, that's when everything's working fine.

no fup. most ppl end up using the hub for downloads. so actual usage is usually very low.
