In Mumbai only 64kbps is now available and no 48, and I get speeds ranging from 11-14 kBps on my connection. Next month I will try out the 128kbps pack and see whats the difference.

Yes SIfy servers cannot limit the bandwidth perfectly, and all users always get 2-3 kBps extra speed. Not a big deal if you are on a 3 mbps connection but for us 2-3 kBps means a lot on a 64k/48k connection.

is it so?

EDIT: Policy : For those heavy users who however continue to remain on unlimited products the following rate shall apply :

Usage on unlimited service packs will be considered as one calendar day or 150MB in a day whichever is earlier. If the usage exceeds 150 MB in a day, one day in validity will be reduced for every 25 MB of usage beyond 150 MB.  This is  explained in detail as follows :

Upto 150 MB utlisation in each day…..No deduction of days validity
For every 25 MB utilisation beyond 150 MB within each day, one days validity will be reduced.

This policy is applicable from 8 am to 10 pm currently and will come into effect from 9th June 2005.

Sify increased everyone's speeds to a minimum of 10-11 kBps and started validity reduction policy. Earlier they had slower speeds and reduced even that to much less when one crossed the limits.So fundamentally they gave with 1 hand and took away with another. Nothing's really changed except better speeds for those who just surf the web.
