I can't really complaint about AIRTEL service but yes, overall rate in this country is still on the higher side.

ISP : BSNL
Plan : 512kbps Unlimited.

INR 1350/mo, no phone rental charges.

You can get fantastic upload speeds if you are on a DSLAM which was upgraded for BSNL's Triple Play system. All major cities should have one or two exchanges with this. You'll get synchronous upload speeds on them. You'll be on one of these if you opt for an 8Mbps connection or a subscriber of the Triple Play system or is a VIP customer (like me). But I cancelled my connection a while ago due to them taking weeks to fix a simple cable fault. After a few phone calls, I opted to get my connection back, but now I'm back on the normal DSLAM due to lack of ports on the better one.

I'll probably cancel this soon because the cable faults are becoming more and more common and downtime is starting to be longer than uptime. BSNL is great when it works, but if its dead, it'll stay dead for a while. I'll prolly switch to Reliance which has laid their cable nearby. A friend reports synchronous speeds for all their plans and great service.

How is 1 GB for a Data Center backbone, with branch offices connected with 100 MBps. Heard it somewhere and I know it is true.

We have a fairly fast connection at office. See the screen shot below from a test done sometime back. ISP name is masked as it shows my employer name.

2000Kbs. 777 plan from airtel. I guess it has 4 or 6GB limit.

With airtel for more than 2 years. No issues thus far. Some times i get this much bandwidth...
