^yes,it is opendns dns values.I never told it is BSNL dns.BSNL DNS is :
218.248.240.24 , 218.248.240.135
here in Kochin.
opendns is very slow these days.I prefer dataone DNS now,it got improved.

Not good West Bengal though. :( I am getting slowest speeds with the mentioned DNS ips. Maybe it is for the Southern India. :confused:

Service Period : 3 years

Downtime : Once or twice (the service was fine, the modem gets bricked every now and then, thanks to my networking expertise !! :) )

Oh no, i am not a fan-boy of BSNL, i have had my share of pains especially with the billing. Back in 2005, BSNL had implemented free usage upto june 30th. I used to download like hell on those days. By july 2005 i got a 8k bill, the accounts department didnt knew (they had claimed so) about this free download thingy.

Then i got 20k bill for using the credentials of an official of Data Network Systems. This guy happened to be the DGM (Tech). The accounts officer said they had planned a vigilance case against me ( oh no!! ), but it was dropped i think*.

*Now if u don't find me loitering in here for a long time, u know where to find me !!
I still have a standing dispute with BSNL over bill of sep 07.

I got my connection on 1st and used up my entire quota of 2.5GB, but in bill they say My connection started from 10th. hince i would get 1939MB free. rest 621 MB would be charged @.80paisa per mb. i Contacted AO, after 5-7 visits he retified my bill.

Now APR 07, 6months after incident i have recieved a letter from AO saying "The bill dt sep 07 is correct. and Broadband was installed from 10th of that month(which is BS) and Force MB calculated after free usage are correct"

If once a issue is settled then why Digging graves again?
WHAT THE FCUK?

So are they demanding the rest of the amount ? Also please get in contact with the nearest internet exchange. They must have reported the connection issue date incorrectly to the AO.

welcome back charan...

I think yesterday's downtime was universal. Almost everyone is reporting it, from areas around India.

offtopic: how good are 4.2.2.1 and 4.2.2.2 as DNS Servers ?
