hello ppl ..... i am currently a user of value online and i am using their 128k unlimited scheme ... which sux btw .... any1 goin for it .... please change ur decision .... value online is by far the worst isp ever .... anyway frustrated with my current isp ..... i called up exattnet ppl to get a new connection ..... to my surprise they had started their internet connection in my bldg .... as till last month they were not providing it in my bldg ..... anyway i am interested in their 512k plan of theirs ..... so their correspondent came over to my place ..... we started discussing abt the 512k plan ..... i asked him the price for the single user .... he told me 2500 .... i was shocked ..... cause on the net i read 1400 per month .... so i showed him the price .... and he was like i am sorry i dont know abt this .... they dint tell me ..... i was like wth ...... anyway ..... i carried on to ask so what will be the speed which i will get ....... guess what he replies ? ..... he said u wont get more than 256k on a 512k plan ... i was shocked .... i was like then why shud i pay for 512k ? ..... he was like if u go for 256k then u will get 128k speed ..... so i asked him why are ull doin this .... he replied that this isp is playing games wid ppl ... they try to trick the customers ... and get them attracted to this scheme ... thats all ..... he carried on to say if u buy the multi user plan then u will get ur 512k speed .... otherwise in the single user plan u wont get it ..... i was pretty shocked to hear ... that exattnet ppl themselves are saying that they are tricking ppl .... lol it was funny ..... any1 here who has 512k unlimited single user plan .... who is getting speeds of 512k rather than 256k ? ..... btw i am from haji ali area , mumbai ..

Well cant say much about exatt since i don't know anyone using exatt but mine is suppose to be a 128k connection but i am getting 160k :p. Anyways i think exatt is anyways better then anything else available and another thing is that you might be getting your connection through the cable wallah and if so then stay away. Many times people end up paying almost 70% more then they should because of these cable bastards.

prophet i can see you are using igate , igate is definately better in speeds but sadly its not available in my area . I remember one of my friend had igate in walkeshwar area and he used to get speeds of 150KB download , that is in the night though but yet . igate is pretty good but heard their customer service is pathetic , which i believe its not a surprise as most of the isps customer service is bad . Only if Exattnet offers true 512k speed to their users it will be so cool . anyone in here who actually is on a 512k single user unlimited plan and is actually getting that much speed ?

well...point 1 ) exattnet never makes home connection . point 2 ) its the CTO that is asking for 2500....so kik him in the ass. point 3 ) exattnet is the best isp ever... trust me..i have been with them now over a year and half or so .... its not just me..its more than half of mulund thats wired on exattnet in mumbai . any problems that that caused are usually at the cto's end . i had a 256 k conn and i used to get 33 kbps ...and i know a friend arvind who is in andheri and is a regular on these forums gets 64 kbps .so its clear that the cto is out to thug you ....exattnet rocks still

i have ExattNet 512 , its ok , nothing great ... i get max speeds of 40-42 , so the connection is kinda 384K/128K , but the best thing for me is i get only for 1000 Rs unlimited ;) so i am somewhat happy with the connection right now but the main problem is that i get disconnected after exactly 5 hours (those guys finally admitted they do it for some unkonwn reasons and it will be fixed in 1-2 weeks ) , but this disconnection gets on my nerve ....

25-30 is pretty bad for a 512 connection ... actually when u get it in the beginning its uncapped till 3-4 GB's ... then after that they show their true colours .. the max u can get will be exact 44.7 kbps [yes , thats the max u will reach] .. as i said earlier it will become like a 384/128 connection ... also its possible u may have 5 hours disconnection like many of us exatt users ... also these guys now cleared up everything , they said that atleast I (512 user) will have 5 hour disconnection throughout , those idiots have included this kind of disconnection in their plans [i confirmed with 2 morons there] .. god knows why they wanna disconnect after every 5 hours , i simply cant understand ...
