from what I have heard from lineman they did upgraded their backend to Fiber 3-5 years ago not all exchanges only the main points. But they refused to upgrade old copper lines for last mile connectivity which is just dumb typical govt logic. Old copper lines couldn't support stable 2 mbps so what is the use of fiber? then they wonder why they are making so much lossMTNL has a surprisingly good backend.
From what I've heard it has great latency which is comparable to airtel.
Which sites are being blocked? From our understanding, it should be sites showing child pornography or a site going against the set rules.BTW I had gone there to apply for MTNL FTTH connection today and their FTTH is down since 11 am. So much for all the hope. But as days pass, Jio FTTH is getting on my nerves. Every fckin day I discover that a new site has been blocked randomly. Plus whenever I play Forza Horizon 4, I get "Poor network conditions may affect online gameplay" messages every other day while in game.
