hi, I have been using hathway since 3 years & I must say its become the worst ISP there today, I would advice anybody against taking hathway...as I am using it at 3 different places & all sux. They provide lan connection at my home for 800 /unlimited & since the beginning used to give max 6 kb now when everybody is giving better speed at cheaper rates their speed started drop & when I called the help desk that I was getting 2/3 KB download they checked & the guy is telling yes this is a shared lan connection & 3 KB is perfect speed I shud be getting, if I want better speeed then I shud go for their modem connection, I told him as a matter of fact I am using their modem 256 KB connection at my office & only after evening I get 22/23 KB speed otherwise its 12/15 KB speed, where again he checks & tells me ya there is no problem that is ok speed will vary ???? They have become totally incompetant...I was using 1 gb limit at office for 128 KB sceme & they changed their schemes & made them cheaper but it took me 1 1/2 month to convince them to change my scheme & atleast inform me about new schemes, they shud be trying to retain their customers instead of trying to just get new customers & give bad service to existing ones....terrible...stay away from hathway, I have changed to exatt.

Well maybe its my luck but its 20 days of daily calling up & yet Exatt have not installed the connection...$#@$ I wasted my whole working day waitng for them to come as promised....anyway they were going to charge 475 +30% (Maintainence) + 10% s.tax for 128 speed :unsure:

lol .... plz guys dont take exatt.. its going down.. they have cut their burst speeds to half... ( atleast for tthe connections which they are giving thr cto's... ex. kms, space, etc .. i dont knw anymore ) .. i spk to lot of ppl at exatt higher post ofcourse.. and they gave me their helpless replies that they are short of band width n all.. .. thats like being a total n00b at being an ISP.dont waste yr installation on it.. unless u wnna really gamble for their low monthly rates but i really dont feel that they shall sustain.. dont knw really how they can afford UL 512 kbps at 1400/- ..!!!!wen big shots like vsnl n al are charging abt 2k for 128k and so on..if u guys are looking for a reliable connection i think pacenet shud hold u in good sted... even though its expensive but reliable... i'll be soon disconnected frm exatt july onwards coz my cto has cut off his relations wid them... so i m looking forward to using my 5th ISP .!cya... GOOD LUCK ! lol!

Whenever some body is trying to change things around they get down easily...Talking about exatt here...This is first ISP which had taken the initative of providing real UNLIMITED always on connection but now what i hear is they are going down....That is obvious .Although they had taken the initiative the real power lies in the hands of govt. which consider such steps as predatory and easily bypass the interst of the consumer.....Long live INDIA

well my story goes on I sent faxes to their Sales manager complaining & finally he replied said to give hime 1 more day, I said ok otherwise I want refund, next day no one turns up, again he calls yesterday apologizing and says by 9am tomo it will be fixed anyhow, finally they come at 12pm.... i sent them back & am going for refund on the instalation charges anyhow. damn I am stranded now with only 24880000... :angry: good old mtnl...
