I suppose this is only in your exchange. As I didn't faced any problem in this month, btw, I am also from Cal. though I only use the connection at free hours mainly. Last month for 3 to 4 days I faced a lot of problem even for two days it was totally disconnected. From what exchange you are?
I get good speed all the time. No problem whatsoever. No downtime either. B) But still I am double minded now as to keep this connection or not. I am applying for an Airtel landline next week but I heard internet speed is poor in Airtel. So I think I will use Airtel for phone calls (the attractive thing being 3 free local numbers and they also give 2 phone sets). If I chose to use internet over BSNL line, then I will also have to pay 160 per month (even If I keep it incoming only) as phone rental, which makes it 500+160 = 660 for 256 kbps, 1 GB data limit. :angry: PS: Any news about new tariffs?
