Incase u guys have not noticed the speeds on MTNL in the afternoons, particularly from 12-5 PM have drastically improved.They are now routing all of their international traffic through Reliance and its recently acquired susbsidiary, Flag Telecom rather than congested VSNL networks.Hope this translates into some unltd plans as well coz reliance is sitting on tonnes on international bandwidth of its own.

Thats great news. Will see the path that I get on traceroute to US servers.

Though I think even VSNL uses services from FLAG, not sure though.

Interesting.....Cost of bandwidth for MTNL (154 mbps) : 3,104,794.00 [as per attached doc]Cost of US - NY and CA (155 mbps): 2,392,000.00 [actual quotation]So even if cost is 30% higher, it does not justify the astronomical price of ISP packages in India. And I would say 500% cheaper salaries of last mile maintenance engineers / workers /bosses paid by MTNL/Bharti/VSNL should neutralize this 30% difference.
