    The partial solution is using high speed vpn.

    VPN can be good but the good ones don't come cheap, but really it doesn't compensate for our slow download speeds :(


    That's nothing, I know a person in US using 100mbps connection for $10/month. 100mbps have become common now around the globe.. 1gbps lan port are sold for a reason don't you think?

    Beam hyderabadi n fivenet mumbai rocks..
    Mtnl seems to have gud plans bt they disconnects frequently..

    In india 3g-4g are just a new formaula of scam..

    This govt n trai r Mother******* .[sorry for faul word]

    Recently trai trippled the 2g spectrum prices than 3g spectrum..
    Which will hike the call rates upto 30% as said by telecom experts..

    There is simple formula in india.. netas Boosts their bank balance by doing scam..
    They go jaill. Then they come out after 6-7th months [ Ex. kanimoji,a. raja]
    Then govt hikes the taxes for shitty reasons as followed By trai hiking the spectrum prices..

    You can see the bsnl corrupt babus who gets hefty salary just atending the office..

    2)APJ as prez(As i heard he was the one who bought 2 mbps to India)

    i propose removing this thread from the "news" section and dumping it in the chitchat section.
    everyone knows that india has the worst internet penetration (double entendre, har de har har)

    old news is old.

    ^^ Yup
    Some people see this and buy
    4G FOR 999-6GB-Buy
    what they fail to see is
    FUP IS 6GB And after that your stuck with a freaking 144 kbps

    And Broadband as per TRAI definition is 256 kbps, which is speed of my connection. Surely if APJ Abdul Kalam becomes President this will change :wink:

    Even the 3G is not upto the mark both in speed and FUP and high cost to the customer.

    ^dont think the providers are really 3G ready because, used 3G for a couple of weeks was only getting it in a few places
    cost is a little on the high side
    video, audio streaming and multiplayer gaming work just fine on 2G tho
