    Is there any BSNL BB plan having a monthly rental of Rs. 900 with 4 Mbps connectivity speed that never reduces to something lower after crossing any certain limit? I am asking this because, I'm am not exactly sure which plan I actually have ( :lol: ) ... I just answered "900 Unlimited" when I was asked for the plan which I wanted to opt by BSNL guys while obtaining the connection. I saw on BSNL website about the "900 ULD"(<--pl. note) -- it was written: "4Mbps upto 8 GB, then 256Kbps onwards". I received a small form filled by BSNL guys ... the plan was mentioned as "900ULFC"(<--pl. note again). When I asked about that speed limit from the BSNL guys who came for modem installation and setup, they said there is no such speed limit, they said speed would remain 4Mbps only, no reduction after any limit. But I don't trust at all about what he said. Is there really any such plan which the BSNL guy mentioned of? :-?

    ...that's sad news :( I wish they were correct.

    But what is the difference between 900ULD(Unlimited Download with Differential speed) and 900ULFC(Unlimited Download..., then ??) plans? :-?

    There are softwares like Dumeter in windows, they can alert you when you reaches 8 or 10GB limit.

    Now that's something new I have read. :-?
    I have a usage meter installed but installed it quite later...I don't know how much I downloaded before installing that meter. So, there lies the problem. :neutral:

    Again asking, what is the difference between 900ULD(Unlimited Download with Differential speed) and 900ULFC(Unlimited Download..., then ??) plans? :roll:

    I'm not sure, just a random guess, ULD = reduced speed after going beyond the FUP (limit). ULFC = $/kb after going beyond FUP.

    Most of the ISPs have adopted "ULD" system now.

    It's not there that's why asking. The BSNL guys wrote and printed "900ULFC" on two forms they gave me. Is that "900ULFC" same as "900ULD"?

    Bad news: As soon as I crossed 8GB, the download speed immediately shot down to ~30 KBps from ~500KBps. BSNL's plans ****. :x It would have been better if the downgrade was to 1Mbps or atleast 512Kbps. 256Kbps really ***** for bulky downloads :x Browsing is OK. But if you're browsing while downloading, the download speed appears similar to dial up speeds. > : - ( A sudden downgrade from 500KBps to 30KBps is really unbearable. :(

    Thanks for the warning . I was seriously considering switching to ULD 900 from 625 , those Employees are ..... anyways , why did i even consider taking theirr word to be true.

    If you high downloads , i would suggest UL 600C. 2.5 GB for Browsing , Night Unlimited , you'll get 4GB/night download .

    True. Those stupid BSNL employees know absolutely nothing. I hate that night unlimited one too. My dad would burn me alive if he finds the PC on for the whole night anyway. :x A better plan would be the 1350UL one: 4Mbps upto 20GB, then 512Kbps onwards.:)

    Your Dad would be mad if you keep your PC on for 6 Hours in the night , but its ok to download at 512kbps , which only gives about 200 MB/hour ?

    What to do...it's like that only..these aged dads know nothing about modern generation guys. For him, 300GB hard disk is like "baap re baap...itna bada hard disk!", and for us, it's equal to nothing. :D

    Do all these stupid BSNL UL plans have such speed limits? No plan with 'forever 2Mbps or 4 or 8 Mbps?' :(

    No need to stay awake whole nite u can use scheduler in u r download manager along with auto shutdown option.
    Browse in daylite and just leave u r pc on during nite.
    It does work,one nite and 4gb would be poured to ur hdd from the wire! Else with 512kbps practical dwnd speed would be 40kbps and for 4gb it would take some 29hrs=electricity and time wasted! Go for the nite unlimited plan.
