    Well well, we all just got luckier. After AIRTEL introduced its Fair Usage Policy, its now the turn of TATA INDICOM.


    .


    :shock::shock::shock:


    though the limit on the "unlimited" connection is much better than AIRTEL's, TATA Indicom's terms and conditions say that they reserve the right to SUSPEND account :x:x:x



    This $UCKS:?

    I hope BSNL will not follow this however, being a public ltd... but who knows!

    Offtopic: I am really feeling good now that I am leaving India and moving to US :D

    Why don't they provide the speeds at a comparable rate to 'major international Internet Service Providers'? Bunch of losers!

    Why should ANY customer of ANY segment suffer coz your infrastructure is too crappy to support them?

    Who the f**k are YOU to decide 'reasonable usage'? And who do you think is an 'average user'? I paid for a UL connection. You should have looked up the meaning of 'unlimited' before taking on truckloads of customers and then implementing this sh*tty deal.

    So that means those stupid customer service representatives will be calling up every 10 days to say 'You have used 3GB of your 5GB limit. Would you like to upgrade to a higher bandwidth plan?'. Get f**king lost, twerp.

    Oh, so its all about looting more money from your customers. Should have known.

    And does no one give a damn about the rights of the customers? You bunch of jerks. Go jump off a cliff and die. :mad:

    no use in trusting politicians to do a fair job...atleast not in India :!:

    Believe it or not, lot of ISPs abroad also do this. The only thing is, they don't make this public. So, in case you download 100GB in half a month and your plan provides you 8Mbps, you are quietly downgraded to around 6Mbps. All this is done, "to keep piracy in check". I heard this from one of my friend.

    I'd be happy to downgrade to 6Mbps. First provide the speeds and infrastructure like abroad and then we'll talk about it.

    So I guess the Airtel petition means squat now.

    . . . . into the dumper.

    The limits of TATA are much better than Airtel, but that does not mean they are right in limiting the usage.

    Unlimited is unlimited. If they cap it, then why the heck they call it unlimited ?

    well that happens in already established high speed infrastructures to cope up with demand and quality. But ours is a developing economy and no way we have reached to that segment where we can talk about FUP shite. We are not even getting broadband according to standard, now this whole dumbing down to stonage thing is bloody disgusting.

    Look at there mofo's terms :-x
