I pay INR 2200/- per month for Airtel Broadband, which includes a speed of 16 MBPS and 50 GB Data; upon exhausting the 50 GB data limit, speed comes down to 512 KBPS.

Thanks. Our rented apartment is already pre-wired for asianet, so that' the easiest way to go. But at least 3 apartment owners have reported pathetic service and too much time to resolve issues. I mentioned this to the marketing executive during the enquiry call, and his response was "Sir, that's because we have a monopoly"

Comments like that are scary

But compared to the big isps they seem the lesser evil

Got 5 Net Broadband installed at home over the weekend.
Chose the 1mbps unlimited 6 month plan for 3.7k.
1.13 mbps download speed & 1.36 mbps upload speed is the best that i've managed to get so far over the past 2 days according to speedtest.
Had enquired with Hathway whether they offer broadband in my area but sadly they don't. In my Dad's office i get 30mbps download speed!

Wish we could get that speed beyond FUP.
In Delhi, for Airtel, I pay 3600 for 8 mbps and 250 GB. Beyond that, it goes down to only 512 kbps. If it was >1 mbps, I could have gone for lower usage limit and lower bill.

I think broadband speed is going to be defined as 2 mbps from Jan 1, 2015. Maybe then the min speed post FUP could be 2 mbps.

I am using ACT Broadband in Koramangala, Bangalore. My speeds are good - but I used to get around 7 mbps when downloading linux distros on torrents some months back. Now, I am only getting max of 2 mbps. Anyone noticed the same?

Got the Yashtel 10 mbps, 80gb plan @Rs.1200 per month. Seems like a good deal for now at least
Quarterly payment option comes to Rs.2900, saving about Rs.700

I am using MTNL Broadband. Have a plan of Rs 1100 which includes unlimited internet at 1 Mbps and 2 Mbps at night. It also includes free 25 calls from the landline. MTNL has been reliable for me since the last 3-4 years.

When I saw this thread, I was searching for MTNL users and then you posted!

I too have been using MTNL for the last 7-8 yrs or so. Since we hardly get any GSM signal at home, MTNL or a pathetic cable internet are the only options - pathetic as its down more days of the week than up.

I used to have the 999 1 Mbps unlimited plan for the last 3yrs and just changed over to a new plan. They've introduced new plan and now i've taken the 699/month plan. Details are:-
- monthly charges - Rs 699
- Speed - 2 mbps upto 12 GB and 1 mbps thereafter

The speeds with MTNL varies, and is always lower than advertised. I measured my new connection at 1.8 mbps at best and usually 1.7 mbps.

As with most public sector (and few pvt sector) companies, once I had changed my plan, I had to followups on phone to actually have them 'enable' the extra bandwidth.
Also, when they came out with the new plans, the existing plan owners were not migrated, so I kept on using the Rs. 999/1 mbps plan even though it was discontinued.

When was the Rs. 999/1Mbps plan discontunued ?

Actually I just got a new MTNL broadband connection 2 weeks back and I was able to get the 999/1 Mbps plan.

I don't know. If you got the plan this recently then either the plan changes are applicable only to Mumbai or the plans got changed right after you subscribed. I'd switched over to the new 2mbps combo plan around 3 weeks ago.

If you check out http://mtnlmumbai.in/index.php/unlimited-plans it doesn't list any 1mbps plan, only 2mbps upwards.

The site also mentions
Quote:
Existing Broadband Customers can continue in their existing plan or migrate to new plan of their choice.
So probably thats why I was automatically continued on the old plan even though it got discontinued.

I have a lowly 1 Mbps unlimited plan from the lCC broadband/ Pacenet.

I pay Rs. 823 per month.
The bad part is when there is a power failure, their equipment goes off and so does the connectivity.

Now, Tata DoCoMo has started offering wired broadband in my vicinity. They are expensive at Rs. 1100 per month for the same plan.
