Bsnl lunched new 8 Mbps connection for busness users . But this connection is for different type of business plan only :mad: . hope they will consider that there are still a lot of home users and do the same for them .:rolleyes:

Business 2000 :- 256Kbps/8Mbps Data transfer limit 12GB

Business 4000 :- 1Mbps/8Mbps Data transfer limit 27GB

If I remember correctly one of the newsletter that I receive from Calcuttatelephones, they are planning to raise the bandwidth for home users too and overall they are planning a 10Mbps BW by the first quarter of 2008.

Still, I could not understand why a back issue of Digit pointed out a private player as the best ISP while BSNL is still the fastest and most transparent. Maybe DIGIT is biased against BSNL 'cause it is still a government venture and proved some pundits wrong that governmant ventures can not be customer friendly as well as cheap.

Carry on BSNL....you are still the best.

Saw the news in the newspaper. I think it is a good move. Yes, BSNL CC may not be good, their tech section may not be good, but BSNL brought the BB revolution in India and no doubt in that.

100% agree with Prakash. My BSNL BB is not stable yet, but I am not very sad, only BSNL provide BB in rural areas. All other players concentrate on cities only.

Just for example. I am just 18 kms from Cochin. In Cochin we have a lot of options - Airtel, VSNL, BSNL, Asianet Cable etc etc. But none of em except BSNL provide BB at my place. So you can imagine the remote areas.

Good move BSNL.

I'll say BSNL is better than Airtel. In what way other than good customer support (I've never got issues in the 2 years other than inquiring abt the new plans/rumours) and upload speeds (where the difference is not much).

I think 8 MBps of BSNL is cheaper than Airtel. Airtel 8 MBps right now is available only in Chennai.



Pawned!... Beyond GODLIKE
wow great move! hopes it comes for home user at much cheaper rates!!:mrgreen: Airtel sucks!! Bsnl rocks!!

The customer care and technical wing of BSNL differs from place to place. In here, we havent got any specialized CC or tech wing. If any broadband problem arises, just contact the NIB and they help us out. Those guys do the tech job and the CC. They know how things are carried out, and they are quite helpful (atleast for subscribers of Trivandrum) :)

I wish they brought this 8mbps revolution to Home plans too. The last time i spoke with a NIB personnel, he was of the opinion that 8mbps will be introduced, but only by mid 2008 (not on Jan 1st 2008 as speculated by many) They have started working on the rural exchanges and many of my friends, who are staying > 20 kms from the city have reported their downstream being increased to 8mbps (on the modem config page).

In my city the customer support is pretty good, sans those sweet voices in the telephone at the CC offices. Who cares about those sweet talks after which the services offered is too poor (I experienced with VSNL/TATA Indicom). And I have been using BSNL for about 2 years (or may be more) and I have hardly faced any issues. Only once, after they introduced port binding, 691 error, which was resolved within 24 hrs and two technicians (serious engineers, experienced and senior people) also visited to see whether there is any problem in my PC's end.

Moreover, I do not think there is any other ISP in India which offers true broadband connection at such a cheap rate 250/- PM.


Can you tell me where to test the upload speed to get a authentic measurement?

Finally, Now my cafe is going to run at 8Mbps


BTW, I'm sure the offer will be extended to Home connections as well by new year.
