Thats common to BSNL too !The ADSL link remains off for sometime/days and I think they do some maintainance or upgradation work.A power/equipment failure might be the culprit...

Oh! then check ur router log when no data is flowing and u can't browse You might find errors like :"Couldn't get channel noumber,Transport endpoint is not connected, doing disconnect, etc..."I had experienced this type of error previously. The link led is on, but no data. Usually happens if the connection to dslam card is lost, due to maintainance or by malfunction. Just placed a fault booking call and the next day, they inquired about the matter, took a note of the error message and the matter was rectified... :lol:

till now i haven't had a problem of DSL being down, hope it remains the same...though i agree 100% with jammy that their CC numbers are busy the whole day, even at night...whenever u try, it will give u an "engaged" tone...still, it is better than sify!! :p

24-28 kbps is not a good speed......bcoz there are very few subscibers of triband at the moment.....what will happen when customer base grows/?????Damn...we dont have BSNL in Delhi

i agree with u, it's not at all a good speed, and am not getting more than 25 kBps :angry:btw, it hardly matters on BSNL or MTNL, the speed is dependent on ur line quality and distance from the exchange...and the international gateway for both BSNL and MTNL is the same, VSNL...correct me if i'm wrong, someone :unsure:so, check on those things...ur line and distance...and DSL in itself means a dedicated bandwidth...unlike cable...

But ADSL dosen't guarantee u a connection which is as stable and consistent as a dedicated leased line ! Plz keep that in mind too ! :D
