I am on a 2Mbps Unlimited plan. Pretty awesome experience so far. No disconnections/downtimes whatsoever.

Please check if they are truly "UNLIMITED" plans. I haven't heard of a 2Mbps truly unlimited plan from Airtel yet. What they usually term Unlimited has some idiotic FUP(Fair Usage Policy) limits of 15-20GB per month after which the speed tapers down to 256Kbps which is truly unlimited

I am getting pretty decent speeds from a BSNL EVDO dongle. (Well within EVDO Range)

Strange thing is that uplink is terribly slow if I use EVDO. Its much better with 1X connection.

Well, they do mention a FUP policy. However its not implemented yet here. I download at least 10 times that of FUP limits on a monthly basis and never faced any throttling by them.

Of late I notice that my speed has been increased to 2Mbps from the 1 Mbps plan which I had originally signed up for. I think they revised the tariff plans recently and put me under the new scheme. I pay about 1450 per month.

I had taken a Tata Indicom connection with a plan of 256 KBPS U/L 2 years back and had no problems with it. Recently, they gave me a free bump to 384 kbps but there was no difference in the download speed.

Just 3 days back, I decided to upgrade my plan to 512 U/L which costs about 50 rupees more. They have indicated in the online account that the plan has changed but still I am getting download speeds of ~30-32 kbps only.

I have already complained twice to their call center. Any solution guys?

EDIT : Also, what download speed should I expect since the compression ratio is 1:4?

I voted 1-35 Kbps for my BSNL evdo connection.
My home is less than a kilometer from the evdo tower, and the signal strength always shows full. Yesterday it even came down to 10 Kbps!
Guess I should be better off with a dial-up.

The call center guys at Tata are least helpful. Infact, they try to explain me that I should get about 30kbps only on a 512 u/l plan.

I forced them to register a complaint and they did so. Within 12 hours, I got the call from the service engineer who listened to my problem and within 10 minutes, I am getting about 60kbps download speed. I am one happy Tata customer

Well, I do not have any fancy Net connection like many of you have. I have a humble BSNL net connection that charges me some 600 bucks for the connection (phone comes free with 100 calls). I think for that amount BSNL gives me a pretty fair deal!

I checked my Reliance Broadband+ (3.1mbps) where i get a d/l speed of 1.79mbps, u/l speed of 0.7mbps, ping-105ms. Whereas my MTNL broadband (1.0mbps) gives me a d/l speed of 0.22mbps, u/l always shows some error or latency failed & ping 216 ms.

With MTNL I always have problems with netbanking or booking of tickets etc. Have complained to their CC but they are unable to solve. Is there a way to improve my MTNL connection as it has unlimited access.

Well well well then.. You should show them this thing (1st pic). This was at my home when I was in thane, (mind you around the same time i.e. September 2010 and the same plan? 512 kbps unlimited).

How Fast Is Your Internet Service Provider (ISP) connection?-speed1.jpg

I was paying some 1200 bucks per month for this. The 2nd pic shows how fast a 4.7 gb movie was downloaded then.

And finally, now that I have shifted to Churchgate, the same provider, same package is giving me this (3rd pic)

You constantly used to get that speed or for some temporary time? Lucky you ! I just get a speed of 60kbps and if I am fortunate enough, it sometimes it gets bumped up to 70kbps !
