Speeds are pathetic as of now.. speedtest shows my speeds as

https://www.speedtest.net

Am supposed to get least 1mbps right now stuck at 512.. least it is better than before was showing 340kbps before.

Weird thing i was getting download speeds as 280kbps last night on my 1mbps plan... so it's pretty screwed up with airtel right now i guess.

Airtel in Mumbai (BB, 3G and their wholesale products which we are using) has been shocking since the fire. Ripunjay has been at Malad day and night working to get stuff fixed, but even I don't know if that's just our stuff or includes everybody's (when I asked him "so does that mean Airtel's network might start working properly from now on?" he merely chuckled). I've personally seen some speed improvements on my own connection (not Airtel, but using Airtel bandwidth once it leaves the network) in the last ~24 hours as compared to even last year.

Bangalore: I am facing all kind of issues from last one month - frequent drops, slow speed, time outs etc... I am using this Airtel BB for more than 3 years. As per Airtel engineer who visited my place - the copper line is permanently damaged and lots of places observing this issue. He said, Airtel is in no mood upgrading anything towards retail customer business and all Airtel lines will be almost dead in two years down the line if there isn't any maintenance initiated from Airtel at right time. This is my status:
DownstreamUpstream
SNR Margin (dB):11.4 5.6
Attenuation (dB):39.5 43.3
Output Power (dBm):12.4 18.9
Attainable Rate (Kbps):4220 376
Rate (Kbps):2553 394
MSGc (number of bytes in overhead channel message):101 17

My speeds have been fixed now :) Called airtel CC, the guy had no clue and even insisted that I reached my FUP ? Finally he admitted he had no clue and asked me to contact airtel presence (seriously airtel stop hiring dumb retarded CC reps, who can barely speak in English) Nonetheless i insisted with him to send an Engineer to my place (usually these guys have more knowledge)Luckily for me the engineer was very helpful, he checked the problem and contacted the NOC guys and even spoke to the Senior management and got my problem fixed in 1 day.
