    Not at all surprising.India needs to change to fibre optic cables and provide good connection.Maybe this will happen by 2020

    Not fiber optics, even fixed connections and less loose joints in the cables should do a lot more better..

    ^^ Exactly.India has the worst Internet plans.I just think its because Of the Lame People In TRAI.
    Whats the USE OF 4G when the limit is 6gb.(Ok good speeds still 6gb)then 144 kbps WTF!
    144 KBPS=15 KB/S(Cant load any of the present webpages fast)

    This is because most the misniter and babus are not technically sound and most of them dont know how internet and computers work, they dont even use internet. hence they are not worried about this as the only thind matters them is money and promotions.

    It will take another 10 to 20 years to reach average speed of 1 mbps, by then the other conoutries would have gone far ahead and the contect wouold be more demanding.

    This is not a new information. Everyone in India who use internet on a daily basis get to know this sad fact sooner or later. And I don't think this messed up situation is gonna change in near future.
    IMO the present pathetic speed with heavy tariff imposed on Indian customers will only change if broadband internet become some kind of mainstream necessity like the mobile phone service. Only then companies will compete and invest heavily on developing the necessary infrastructure and lowering cost of usage.

    And I don't see that happening as 50 % of population has nothing to do with internet and majority of the remaining users as I see it are more than happy with the pathetic speed available on those stupid 2G/ 3G mobile "broadband internet". :( .
    (Also a major portion of users I see only care if their internet conn. is fast enough to update their stupid facebook status.)
    And most importantly this is the situation of India which is one of the leading countries when it comes to software development/ engineering.

    Since the government cannot censor all of the net, they try to make it an ordeal for everyone.

    I mean, all the top ISPs provide pathetic plans and bandwidth, only the local ISPs provide better (if not superior) connections.

    Old thread by me: http://www.thinkdigit.com/forum/chit-chat/140821-pakistan-broadband.html

    Some people say - "DEMAND IS HIGH IN INDIA."

    Demand and supply logic doens't work here. The Indian govt. had bothered about the telephony revolution. Re. 1 per minute STD. Demand and supply? It's just that India hasn't seen an internet revolution. The govt. doesn't bother now.

    Cause:
    1. India have small amount of international bandwirdh.
    2. Most of those international bandwidth is being wasted in government sector (offices etc.) and thereby creating the very high artificial need among general users and thus forcing operators to provide internet at a very high rate.

    And some people in india when you ask them what your internet speed they say 100 mbps.
    And many many people get fooled by MB GB Term. They dont know the difference they fall for all sorts of marketing ideas
