Is it 10Mbps or like 8-9 Mbps?
On most ISPs, it is not always possible to get ideal 100 % speed. That is why it is only mandatory to provide 80% of promised speed. ISPs say upto 10 Mbps
Download speed on IDM is constant 1 MBPS. On torrents, 700-800 KBps

State-run telecom operator BSNL has extended the ‘Happy Browsing’ promo offer to its broadband subscribers across the country. Under this offer, BSNL broadband users will get the same pre-FUP data speeds even after crossing the monthly FUP limit.

You mean 8/10 Mbps ?
Yes. The speed will be same throughout this month.
Is it for one month only?
Nobody knows and as mentioned before there was no announcement.
Last time this was done, it was there for 3 months.
I'm pretty much spoiled at this point having 8-9Mbps for the month and can't imagine the frustration when the bandwidth gets reduced. I was wondering, how much would you guys think is a fair price for bandwidth of about 10Mbps without Fair Usage Policies or speed throttling?
I'm asking because I think it isn't viable for a state run telco like BSNL to provide such broadband services at a price of 675 p.m. No where in the world is anyone getting that level of downstream bandwidth for that amount of money. Now, I'm willing to pay more for broadband that doesn't slow down right at the start of the month; a service that has decent upstream bandwidth. BSNL FUP states that it is in place to balance out the tariff for people who use the internet less. People like me who do need decent bandwidth are screwed, especially in my situation where I'm the only person subscribing to BSNL broadband in my residential street. I think the business model of BSNL is stupid in this day and age.
Instead of having plans differentiated solely on the basis of the amount of data, they should structure the plans according to bandwidth. Introductory plans like the BBG249 can have 1Mbps up and down. BBG599 can have 2Mbps up and down. A plan like BBG750 can provide 3Mbps up and down. BBG 1499 can give 8Mbps both ways, BBG1699 can provide 10 Mbps.
I'm just suggesting the plans and I'm not completely sure about the finer details but what I'm trying to say is; BSNL definitely has the bandwidth to provide a decent broadband service, but as it stands the plans don't make sense to me. Every plan is tiered based on amount of data and not bandwidth.
Let's have a discussion about this. I feel like I'm not the only one who thinks this way.
BBG 1499 indeed with 8Mbps both ways is an excellent proposal - 8Mbps Down and 5Mbps Up will do for me and I'm ready to shift.
Make sure it is True 8 Mbps not upto.
Yes, people are willing to pay for a good service. I don't know if taking about this here is going to do anything. I'd like if this turned out to be reality rather than wishful thinking. What can we do?
Look for cablewala internet. They are cheap and offers very good speed. Service could be unreliable at places though.
Cable people don't provide internet services here. BSNL is the only option.
'What can we do ?' - Absolutely nothing other than waiting for (if and when) Jio Fiber or something similar to hit the entire country...
you can start some petition stuff at the 'change.org' - I don't know how effective it will be.
Not the majority in India.Just take a look at railway ticket prices,people actually expect Railways to provide good services when on an average railways make 43% loss on sale of tickets(as per message displayed by IRCTC portal when booking tickets online). Everybody say railway provides poor services but give suggestion of raising ticket prices & majority will stand up in protest.I mean look at people protesting at Delhi Metro fare increase.They should travel in Mumbai locals to realize what happens when you keep the prices of tickets lower/same for years.
Very true but there are lots of other things not solving like vijay mallya and people like that, too chaep monthly seasonal tickets, MST holders boarding on trains that are not for them, too old and too bad conditions of coaches, corruption and not to mention reservation, racism, religious privilege and bureaucracy.
Just read the news below and think the reason behind this :
India doubtful even after WHO lights green signal for dengue vaccine
I know it's not in the scope of this topic to discuss things like this but there are lots of things which should not continue are continuing and will continue unless people starts to take responsibility for their actions and go beyond their little selfishness.
Well it takes an open mind to think beyond short term gains & selfishness which sadly is not true for majority in India.
Back to topic,BSNL at least is making some efforts now compared to earlier where it didn't even tried.Maybe the reason is mounting losses & present govt selling Air India to show its willingness to sell PSUs which are running huge losses.BSNL must now also focus on improving its customer care.e.g.I have seen here itself that majority of people don't know that it requires a request to be made to local exchange to get your line speed increased from 2/4mbps & then they complain about BSNL service.This results in BSNL earning bad reputation so BSNL should at least put a disclaimer/note in bold letters under their plans on their website stating that one must make a request to get these increased speeds.
