Well there was another person i spoke to who's the commercial somethin, but he just said October, didn't give any dates. They've claimed that they're gonna launch Cable TV on Nov 1st (Although initially i think they'll offer just free to air and regional channels), so am just hoping that they they announce them before the end of this month and give us some time for existing subscribers to switch plans.
lots of interest shown on this topic.. its just a matter of time!! has anyone else apart from waterloo sunset heard of similar plans? or by chance knows any1 working in mtnl? most of the small folk won't know much.. it is possible that they wud make an unlimited plan mayb because i read earlier in this forum sone guy traced their service to tata owned vsnl.. and there was some news sum tym back tht they(vsnl) were cutting down on prices of bandwith.. not that india is short of bandwith.. i hear its mostly coz they are just playing party pooper and holding out coz theres a great demand for broaband out there.. So with the current demand and competition..isps are in for the "get more subscribers for less bandwith" policy!! hopefully this will change soon!! coz when one of the isps provides unlimited 24x7 and we are talking about broadband 256 k and not the lame stuff thats going around.. there will be price competition that will leave us with adequate choice.. hopefully mtnl will pave the way.. its not a good thing that our hopes are based on mtnl.. coz they've shown their dedicated service to doing nothing fast..
