In India, TRAI is the deciding authority and they have kept the limit as 256 and if the speed is less than that, the companies cannot fool the customers by calling it 'broadband'. It might be 1 Mbps 5 years down the line. The definition of 'broadband' varies from country to country as well.

Microscan, PDPL and Tata Play.
or you can be a smart private player (like airtel) who has a website "airtel-broadband.com" with 64, 128 k speeds and a line somewhere that says "TRAI has defined broadband as 256k and above" :)

But you can still file a case against them in court for "misleading" info.

The key word here is "sometimes".This thread has become more and more popular. Has it got anything to do with "schame"? :D

yes, politically they are correct but we can still drag 'em to court for giving 128Kbps on a 256Kbps ;)

Hey Sushubh, I was wondering if it is possible to attach a spell checker with the add Reply option. I am hopeless with spellings too.

umm all the three popular browsers in the market have third party support for adding spell checker. use them instead.
