    Cable operator said they will be having Kerala Vision soon. He said they had some issue when they started, now they are fine.

    I just did a speed test to kerala vision ISP, found their server IP 103.199.160.54

    Code:
    inetnum:        103.199.160.0 - 103.199.163.255
    netname:        KCCL
    descr:          Kerala Communicators Cable Limited

    They are using Reliance (flagtel.com) to land in india. Then use 223.31.120.242 (sifycorp.com). Maybe they get bandwidth from sify, that use Reliance.

    Ping from France to Kerala Vision IP

    Code:
    root@admin:~# ping   103.199.160.54

    Looks good, exactly like we used to get when railwire used Reliance flagtel.com to route traffic.

    Looks like Railwire is updating their plans. But it doesn't look better. After fup speed is now shown as 1mbps.

    100mbps 350gb plan is untouched. But they upped 75mbps plan to 500gb.

    Our local cable guys never update about the new plans. He is much slower than a tortoise.

    Good thing is the post FUP speed and data are updated. I would have been happy if the price dropped too. That is not going to happen, I think.

    I hope they increase the 100mbps plan data. It makes no sense why they left it untouched. Looking at the lower level plans, this one should be 600GB.

    Will go for 75mbps from this month on wards.

    If more users downgrade to 75 mbps, railwire will learn basic maths.

    Downgraded to 75mbps. Strangely they have changed 100mbps plan to 600gb in Tamilnadu region only. (But their after fup speed is still 512)
    Talked to CC and they told they will consider it during next plan change.


    What do you think of this? - Railwire changed my ps4 nat3 to nat 2 | Railwire Broadband

    Any idea about that gaming ip thing?

    Dedicated IP cost INR 2,000/- per year from RailWire. You can only get it if your plan cost INR 2,000/- per month or more. You can login to RailWire portal, there is option to order static IP. If your plan is below 2K, they don't allow you to place order for static IP.

    For normal gaming, you don't dedicated IP. I am not sure about PS4 thing they discuss. Normal PC gaming works fine with RailWIre.

    If you need to host your own Game server, say minecraft, it won't work with RailWire unless you pay for static IP. This is because of RailWire network, not because of static IP. You can run minecraft on a BSNL connection with out static IP.

    EDIT: I see the post, it was on 3rd page some told about gaming IP, there is no such thing. Maybe railwire give away free static IP for this guy to keep him as a paying customer. I don't think everyone going to get such free gaming IP.
