Anybody on K Broadband in South Bangalore? Any feedback? They've strung fiber in my area, and claim their backbone is Airtel. Costlier than SpectraNet, who's also in my area. SpectraNet is a known quantity (consistent bad reviews), and K is new.

I'm on Airtel tortoise service, 8mbps DSL.

So my ISP [Asianet] has started blocking torrent traffic. Am able to access the sites and download the torrent magnet file. But the torrents remain stuck at "connecting to peers"

They said they have received instructions as per court order to block all torrents. Got a copy and it seems that the producer/distributor of welcome back movie filed a case stating that his movie was being shared in a lot of torrent sites and as such got an injunction to block a lot of sites :(

What to do?

I also have Spectranet in Pune. I am on their 20Mbps unlimited plan.
They have once in a month downtime but that's because of local goons who keep on cutting cables and create other issues.
Other than that i never had any problem. It's almost 1 year now.
I also read their bad reviews online but I am happy now with their service. they will inform by sms about the down time and resolution time.

Fortunately torrents are working for me but few sites only are blocked which is ok.
In your case, i think going with some other provider is the only option left (hopefully other provider doesn't block torrents).

I too am facing the same situation in Trivandrum. Why is it that only Asianet is affected by the court order? Should'nt all ISP block the specific torrent links? Anyway I think asianet has done a blanket block of all torrent traffic which is not the right approach.

I am using the 100 Mbps plan by Youbroadband here in Pune.
Good experience.

The problem now I see is with many websites that don't allow fast download (gasp!)

Have uploaded the legal notice and the list of sites which are to be blocked here:

Hope it's a temporary thing

How good is Limras Eronet internet connection at Chennai? Especially the consistency of speed? I'm about to get a new connection.

Im using it for more than 6 months now. Usually speeds are consistent for 90% of the time. This is one ISP that does not have an online payment gateway . It is collected manually every month. About 2 months ago there were frequent disconnections, but now it is pretty stable.
Customer care is not as good as ACT but much better than BSNL, Airtel.

Hope you are staying in Urapakkam (DVS?). If yes the other option is Netfire, identical pricing but almost same level of service.

What to do?

Asianets relationship with torrents has been a mixed bag for me here in Ernakulam. 90% of the time torrents work fine, but then on the occasion they get all law abiding on me and torrents dont work for a while, usually for a day or so. Whats is their down time. Most days from about 8-9PM, theres no connection. Then on the occasional weekend, pfft... the Google Chrome dinosaur. No amount of yelling at the customer care or repeated threats to cancel the connection seem to work. I dont know if its poor infrastructure or what, but if this keeps up, I might need BP medication soon.

Tried NordVPN. They offered a full 3 day trial. Worked just fine. Yearly package is 36 dollars. Might take it next month.

Avoid BP medication

Default ACT Fibernet

I'm using ACT Fibernet's Blaze 30 Mbps plan (since last 2 weeks) in Bangalore.
Have been receiving consistent download speeds of 30 Mbps & upload speeds of over 30 Mbps.

The only irritation is having to log in everyday morning, once the router is switched on (we switch off the router before going to sleep).
Any method the daily login can be eliminated?

Check your router settings page. We can enter the credentials in the router so that it will log in automatically when it connects to the internet.
