And everyone takes for granted that they will SURELY get the advertised 256 Kbps speed. If my experience is anything to go by, I would take such claims of speed with more than a pinch of salt. ISPs in India were never known to be scrupulous, never known for caring for their customers... My own "broadband" cable net connection gives me 32 Kbps at the most. If you want to believe BSNL go ahead, I will wait and watch before investing my hard-earned money. BSNL is no better than any other operator going by their jealousy over the copper last-mile access system that they think they control - but that never belonged to them at all.
 
airtel is giving rather decent speeds here in gurgaon. i can download and upload simultaneously at around 12-13 KBps.
 
Initially sify also used to give separate bandwidth for both upload and download....so I was able to upload and download simultaneously at 64kbps now it's the total speed
 
the good thing is that airtel is not new to the business of providing broadband. i used it as touchtel 2 years back. it rocked then, it rocks now. 🙂

no, they are not paying me anything 🙂
 
I have earlier used DIAS ( 128 kpps of BSNL ) and now also use Data One ( Broadband 256 kpbs ) and am happy with DIAS while Dataone is also fine though th only prob is that it disconnect every few minutes and redils again. This is a pain in the a&#.

The hassle u face for every disconnection can be minimized if u do not use the winxp created dialler and use the managemant interface 192.168.1.1 of the modem and configure it to always on mode.Also get ur line checked by BSNL people.ways2gain, I think u r from kolkata. Me too, but do not face any disconnections at all !
 


HeyThanks for the info. You r rt I am from Kolkata. How does one create a winxp dialer - I think I am on that but not sure.Whats a 192.168.1.1 interface because thats what my LAN uses for my network, and also I think thats the nos used by my Wifi/Router.Line seems OK but Ill get it checked by BSNL chaps.
 
By default the modem has the IP 192.168.1.1 but you can change it from the modem's access page if it conflicts with any other device within your network.
 
ways2gain,i have already posted how to configure in one of ur other messages.u have decided to try it on office pcs.
