    year of broadband

    when Govt. own BSNL is giving capped / low 256kbps unlimited plans then private compnies are following the same way.

    wth they can't start new trend or start new competition among them by starting even upto 2 mbps with unlimited plans .

    is the dumb TRAI or Mr. Moron listening , naah I don't think so

    I hope Tata Indicom also provides 2MBPS uncapped connection at existing 256kbps rates. In that case, the cost of 512kbps/1Mbps uncapped connection will be lower and I can break free from the clutch of BSNL.

    Bad thing. Because iam afraid they will remove all unlimited plans and put all those in data caps.

    He did not say 2 MBps. He wants them to give a constant speed of 2 Mbps, not 'upto 2 Mbps'.

    if they start giving 2Mbps like bsnl is giving me now (my speed has gone from 32KB/s to something like 15KB/s) then I'd rather choose to hibernate in this "year of broadband"...

    Exclamation Re: Government directs all private ISPs to provide broadband at 2 MBPS

    ===================================
    Upto 1/2 mbps with data limit
    =================================
    Exact : 64/128/256/512 kbps with unlimited data usage
    ================================

    Best option is unlimited data usage.


    why ?

    1. Dont worry of data limit. no tension of extra amount...
    2. Good sleep... (why 2 to 8 night time)
    3. No worry if site contains ads or flash animations...it cosumes more data..
    4. No virus/tojan problem. suppose if u get something virus type file, then it may be eat ur more data-bandwidth.... u cant rely for security on any anti virus/isp compnay if virus/tojan is new..
    5. u cant get exact speed in " Upto .. kbps/mbps ". Depends on server load. if u get less speed, than u cant argue against ISP..b/s they write "Upto ..."
    6. more u surf, more u get information.. try to download much...
    7. u dont have to check ur a/c status everyday...
    8. u get both advantages in unlimited plan http+torrent download/upload...
    9. all soft,music,movies,ebooks,videos..warez..now available on net...u can get if u know how to search... needs more surfing time...
    10. if ur a/c used by any applications or other user in data limit plan..
    it is possible to get user/pw of isp a/c...

    some observations of mine...

    who needs 2mbps with 700+ ping???

    I m on 900UL plan. As they upgraded the other plans, High ping problem arises.

    I second all the above. I can browse ANYTIME of the day or night ON MY TERMS, at a constant speed of 256 kpbs, without worrying about excess billing

    HuH I use such a plan 150 MB in day 10PM to 8AM free @ 256kbps cost 915 Rs. in Delhi and hope sify upgrades it to 2MBps (yes MB) but Iwill be satisfied if they even do upto 2Mbps
    The real and only freedom is Public Domain. Everything else in unfree! Even those who claim to be the self styled evangelists of freedom are not free because freedom cannot be forced by any means!
