Default Re: How Fast Is Your Internet Service Provider (ISP) connection?

After a long time using Idea netsetter, MTS etc finally got Asianet prepaid FTTH connection recently. I had BSNL BB till 2011 or so but after a cable fault, they cannot provide BB at my premise. This is because as per a court rule, they cannot dug Muvattupuzha-Thodupuzha state highway (PM road).

Asianet FTTH is quiet expensive at Rs5000 for establishing the connection. EPON ONU(Optical Network Unit) costs Rs3700 and rest is their fitting charges. Connection is provided off Asianet FTTH by a franchisee here. I've opted for Rs900 plan which offers 4mbps speed and 20GB data limit. There's a 898 plan which offers 2mbps till 20GB and 512kbps after FUP limit. I was looking at the FTTH plans in big cities and elsewhere in India and it is obvious that we're charged quiet high compared to other cities.

Asianet provides a static IP. Don't know whether it's a boon or bane. There are disconnections at 1PM-1.20PM time for 25minutes or so these days as they claim Metro works at Kochi is disrupting their services. Don't know the truth.
EDIT: I forgot to put another info. Like Asianet cable internet, For the first time when you launch browser, you're redirected to Asianet web authentification page where you've to enter username and password and select Internet service. Even in router with pppoe mode, cannot automate this procedure. Any help is appreciated.

If you have a static ip then this is not required. I am on their 50mbps plan and took static ip [Rs.2000 or so per year] just to get myself rid of that annoying login procedure. Along with that they also had a twenty minute inactive logoff window as well. Irritating.

So check if you do in fact have a static ip. If yes call up asianet customer care and ask them to waive off the log in procedure.

I haven't asked for static IP. They offer only prepaid internet here. I will call them whether they can shift my connection to a dynamic IP one.

What i meant to say was that by default asianet gives dynamic ip i think and which makes you have to log in every time.

Static ips are given on customer request after submitting a formal request with a network diagram [] and a fee of Rs.2000 or so for a year. Once static ip is activated you no longer have to go through the log in procedure.

The connection is given by a Franchisee of asianet. They don't charge Rs2000 for static IP and asianet procedure is not applicable here, I think. Regarding login to asianet for authentication, I have asked cable operator to enquire whether it can be skipped for his network (all subscribers have static IP). I personally would choose dynamic IP over a static IP unless I am into hosting services etc and some privacy factors also.

Here, Asianet gives static IP for every FTTH connection outside own-network. May be because of lack of IP range available. In my work place (Kakkanad, Kochi), they have a 10mbps asianet cable internet connection for back up, most of the time it is not working because IP is not assigned and the router waits eternally for IP. What I heard is, other users have to wait till some one logged off from the connection freeing IP. So, that may be why, they are giving static IP for Outside own-network users.

This particular Asianet franchisee network(FTTH) where I have got the connection is shifting to "Kerala vision" network offering up to 50mbps speed in next few months. Whether it is for good or bad is the question. http://www.kccl.tv/

Also, Reliance JIO FTTH going to be available soon?

Post Re: How Fast Is Your Internet Service Provider (ISP) connection?

@deathwalkr: I did a small research on the login process of asianet ftth. I mistook a private network IP as static! You are given a class B private IP address, subnet mask and gateway IP address which needs to be configured on your router or Desktop. Also,a username and password is given. So, for the first time when you open the browser, class-A ip is shown (1.xxx.xxx.xxx) which immediately redirects to the login authentication page where you've to enter username and password, after which you are allowed to access internet. The external IP assigned seems to be the same for a day afterwards it is renewed (possibly). So, no static IP address for me.

@deepclutch: So did you ask them if the login procedure could be avoided if you do take a static ip?

Well after upgrading from 20mbps to 50mbps last month, my bandwidth was stuck at 20mbps and repeated calls to customer care bore no fruit. Called up the nodal officer who arranged for a site visit and today my bandwidth is at 37mbps download [speedtest.net].

He called up and asked me to update him after 2 days if speed goes upto 40mbps at least.

Happy

Does ACT broadband or Airtel give IPv6 option? That way I can get static address easily.

They cannot remove this login system at this time. You may read my earlier post. I've no static IP. The assigned external IP changes every 24hrs. Connection works fine. Only the high cost of ONU is the problem.

I have MTNL trib999 1mbps broadband connection. But from past few days, my connection's speed is around 200-400 kbps only. I registered a complaint couple of days back with them but the problem hasn't resolved yet.

What could be the reason for slow speed? Never experienced this kind of problem from MTNL internet since last 8 years!

Hey folks!

I just got my ACT Broadband connection setup. However, I need some assistance in getting connected using my username/password and setting up my modem-router to connect to the network.

Does anyone here have any idea how to configure an ADSL modem/router to work with ACT Broadband? I looked up on the internet, and it seems that modem cum routers might not work. Only Wi-Fi routers are going to work with ACT.

If someone can shed some light on this topic, it will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for looking. Cheers!

As for the setup, I should be able to help.

The main fiber cable goes into the Modem. Then, from the modem, you will get a Ethernet cable that will go into the WAN port of the router.

You can then use the WiFi or the LAN by extending an Ethernet cable from one of the LAN ports of the router to your system to enjoy your high speed internet.

As for the Username and Password, Hathway gets me to enter it in a special page. I am not quite sure how ACT works in that respect.
