    I think the private sector should do first and give them a run for they're money

    yeah rite ; when it comes to bandwidth the indian private sector sucks
    they just keep the same tarrifs as bsnl even for lower bandwidth ,so i guess bsnl is gonna give the private sector a run for their money

    Well in my city Airtel Broadband was the first with 256 kpbs always on connections. BSNL only came later with their 900+ plan

    As far as Calcutta is concerned there is unfortunately only one true broadband DSL service provider which is BSNL with their dataone service.I have been using the 256kbps/1GB connection for almost 2 years now.But I feel competition is the name of the game.As soon as private players come into the picture the story might change.But then again mobile broadband might just take sometime in India.Currently providers like Hutch claim that they provide EDGE but the speeds are as bad as dial up.Now that the Government has decided to open the spectrum for 3G things might change.....Also read this: http://www.thinkdigit.com/forum/showthread.php?t=41622

    Hope we get 1 MB or 2 MB/sec unlimited plans in the future at an affordable price.

    Btw, the Goa government recently had a full page ad on how they are going to implement a 10 Gbps line (actually a couple of these lines) throughout Goa. This is going to be completed somewhere by december 2007 throughout Goa (including rural areas).

    Right now I'm more than satisfied downloading on this 2Mbps line that we've got in the office (I'm working for the International Film Festival...). Gonna be hard to let go in another three days.

    I think 256kbps Unlimited Connection for Rs.500(If possible much lesser than that) is much better than 512Kbps with download limits..

    I think the ideal thing would be to upgrade the 900 Unlimited plan to something around 1Mbps keeping the rate same. Also a 2 Mbps connection at something around 1500 to 1800 would be great.
    __________
    512 Kbps is the minimum speed for broadband in the UK. Dont know about US but true high speed broadband has to be nothing short of 2 Mbps.
