Check Airtel's new tarriff's. They have revised their rate plans. You now get a 256KBPS unlimited for 999. I just upgraded my plan ;)


While I am posting this message, the Airtel guys are installing the phone line for the plan you mentioned above :p .. i should say it must be one of the best plans offered in India :lol:

hi i have 2 urgent strange problems. ive been to *, and have discovered. plan is home 1000 with a speed of 384, but the listing says this a typo? any of you guys have a home 1000 plan?

2. i noticed a bod test button. it said bod test1 and bod test2, when pressed my speed shoots up to 1mbps. now this by itself is not distressing but what is distressing are the fact that it is not mentioned what are the charges involved. anyone of you guys have any idea?


Broken In
yes, i too have seen the same along with a 10M button (which btw does not work)... any details regarding the same would be highly appreciated :)

i spoke to the bsnl guy(i ilve in a small town, so believe it or not he knew me by the sound of my voice), he said that it doesn't work properly yet and theres no extra charge as of now.

by the way any of you having a home 1000+ or a buisness1200+ plan can tell me what speed the * site tells you?

More feedbacks are needed... How many of you are using the same? The inputs will be greatly appreciated... As most of you will know that the VOD (video on demand) has been removed from the menu... Do hope to hear more feedbacks :)

Well, here's my experience with Iqara.

I live in Bandra West. I have Iqara as an ISP. Even the torrential rains last month, where half of mumbai was flooded till the first floor did not stop my internet connection. It didn't go down for a minute even! I have a 256 Kbps plan and i get between 30 to 35 (steady) KByte speeds.

Also, I think 500 MB per year is ridiculous, but for, say my in-laws, who use the Net very sparingly, checking mail once a week, and no surfing. This is an amazing plan. I also had a friend who went abroad for 7 months, and came back to still have his internet connection working... no bills, no disconnection, no reconnection charges, nothing!

So yes, though it is pointless for me and 99% of other people, at least Iqara is offerring that 1% minority an option of very low usage, long term scheme.

PS: Their helpdesk sucks, and the women there don't know a thing. Though I must confess to not have too many complaints thus far

I have downloaded about 100 GB in the last 5 months on my iqara connection, mainly software for the Digit DVDs and loads of game demos!

Though I do agree that it's about time people started offering unlimited 512 kbps connections for 24 hrs at reasonable prices.


Hey Raabo,

I too have an iqara connection. I stay in chembur. My connection is 64 kbps unlimited and 750 bucks per month. Isnt that a bit costly?
The speeds I get are great...i mean i constantly get around 6.5 kbps.
Are the other plans from Iqara good? How much do they charge you for unlimited 256kbps?
