Should be 1 Mbps atleast IMO at the end of this year.

Wow! No roaming, consumer protection etc do seem great. Hope it is implemented soon. :)
Still only 2Mbps by 2015? :/ It may seem good now, but by that time the first world countries would be far far ahead of us. :(

consumers will have to wait for some time before roaming charges are abolished and one-number-one-nation concept implement as DoT will first work out modalities of the new scheme before it is brought into force

Still ,the more the better.:-D

India can never ever catch up with the advanced countries,regarding Broadband and price issues in Hardware components/products....because,these are Inhibiting ,retardent policies by various vested interest groups,done fully intentionally.Even if we do have the resource(education,manpower,etc.) and Technical Infrastructure,the VICIOUS circle of Political Agenda + Business Agenda will go on and on....

Wish they don't come up with crap FUP plans. I'm only afraid of that.

It would be much better that if they ordered to discontinue FUP everywhere :p

Either it's Limited or Unlimited :p

even in FUP it has to be the said speed.. if its 2Mbps then its 2 Mbps.. they cannot decrease the speed.

BMG ftw!!
^ Upto 1mbps plans should remain without FUP. But any plan with speed over 1mbps should have reasonable amount of FUP (i.e. 100GB min) to avoid abuse.

Wish it to be true.

its logical.. if TRAI says "for a service to be called as broadband service , then it should have a minimum of 2 MBPS download speed" then companies cannot sell plans as Broadband which is less than 2 MBPS..

what companies will do is this..
They will still retain the same FUP crap and instead of call it "Broadband" they will call it "High Speed Internet" .. this is what will happen..

+1.
Absolutely,well said Krishnandu.
The term "abuse" itself is relative when considering the aspect of BB plans and bandwidth.
As a responsible netizen,It's my duty not to abuse on the power of the net.But,system should not be retarded nor a barrier for knowledge,amusement,fun...within the selected authentic domain.

Yeah, 10mbps should be min. for the year 2015. this year it should have been 2mbps.

Unlimited? I don't think so. Even big players around the world sets FUP limits, that's how they provide quality service.


2 mbps minimum lets see what our airtel will do now :D


Lets hope by the end of this year we can get 2mbps for rs 500 :p
