Here, i'm pretty content with 8mbps BSNL plan and people are complaining about someone not getting the full 1gbps connection, seriously guys?

1gbps is excessive for 99% of Indian homes, the remainder will use it for seedbox and other shady stuff i reckon.

If i could get a symmetrical 8mbps connection, i would be the happiest kid on the block.

Speeds on torrents are decent.

Random example: Source


Fast.com is around 160-200mbps.

are you sure your hardware is not bottlenecking you ? coz that speed on torrent is very very bad. i get those speed on excitels 75 Mbps plan. it should be 90 MB/sec considering its a gigabit connection and not 9 . fast.com speeds are also very bad.


for some reason i couldnt quote the guy above me. anyways

how is seedbox = shady stuff?

also just because you are happy with your 8 Mbps connection doesnt mean that a guy who is getting below 400 Mbps on a gigabit connection should be too thinking ohh hey 95% of indian population dont even get 10 Mbps so i should be happy that i am getting 400 here. NO!!! spectra is advertising this as a gigabit connection. so if people are not getting these advertised speeds even after their hardware being compatible and other factors in favor then they should complain. they have every right to complain.

yea , could you try downloading that ubuntu file and latest torrents with good seeds so that they reflect a better picture of this 1 gigabit connection.

if you use steam/origin gaming clients, you can test from that too

lol yeah. to reach anywhere close to 1gbps, it would be better to download latest builds of all popular distros at the same time lol.

People do not understand false advertising even at cheap prices is still false advertising and it still should be considered a bad service. No matter how cheap the plan is, if your plan promises 1gbps I should get that speed all the time not just under particular conditions when my stars are aligned or for only particular type of traffic or content.
