Best broadband

I am going to apply for a BB but I am not sure which provider should i take services of. I have got two options one BSNL DataOne and another Sify. I like BSNL's Plan 500 and sify's Night Unlimited shared(256 Kbps). Which should i stick to. Help me soon I will apply within a day or two

BSNL Plan 500 costs 500(without service tax and 256 kbps speed) and sify night ulimited costs 545(with service tax and 256 kbps speed). Thus both of them cost the same the deciding factor will be speed given and service

i think out of the choices u have presented

BSNL will be an easy runaway

u get daytime access

of course nighttime is also free download time 2-8 am

and of course u can own a modem

in sify's case u need to give a waste deposit of 1500 bucks !!!!


but one thing against BSNL is customer service is poor (atleast in my area)

but out & out BSNL will be a better choice

and for all dataone related queries come here

Welcome to BBR! Run more tests! see forums

Your download speed : 19 kbps or 2.4 KB/sec.
Your upload speed is much faster than down.. have you tweaked?
Your upload speed : 35 kbps or 4.4 KB/sec.

2)www.speed.touchtelindia.net
Your current bandwidth reading is:
116.00kbps
Retest
which means you can download at 14.5 KB/sec. from our Network to your last mile provision.
}

The airtel site shows more speed but as per my experience speed is very bad .Only their site shows that speed and all others show very very bad speed.And also the page loading in very slow.
when i download a file with IDM i get 10KB/s (not anywhere nearer to rated 16KB/s)

Best option is SIfy

In sify i used to get 200KB/s speeds for ateast for 2-3 days in a month(sometimes for full month). and also their rated speeds for 256kbps connection used to be exactly 32KB/s .But unfortunately due to some problems i had to disconnect from its service.

My friend has BSNL

for a 256kbps plan he gets 20-24KB/s using IDM which is just ok .But we expect atleast 30KB/s as we are paying for 256kbps and not for 160kbps.

I will rate the ISP in the following order in terms of speed and service
1)Sify
2)BSNL
3)Airtel

although i had Airtel broadband from about 2 weeks already, but my previous modem was faulty, so i changed it now i got a new modem, which is just like the same with same drivers,

i got 128 kbps unlimited internet connection, & there are hardly any downtime, at all, i download 140 MB in only 3 hrs, with flashget

so far, it's good, but airtel was really slow in my case, they took 1 & a half month to install it at my home, & i even send them a notice for this, but now it's good, although in my area at a few other places, they installed it preety fast, don't know why there were so slow for me

i would recomend anyone to get this, their plans are really great & quite cheap, i m paying Rs 700+100, including the modem rental

Does anyone use Sify Broadband? I'm planning to apply for Sify BB's 1gb plan which costs 550 / month . . Is it good? My main concern is the speed and uptime.

I had posted about Exatt a long time ago in this thread, I thought I'd update it. Especially since I hit a new milestone of 100GB+ data transfer in a month. Now thats what I call unlimited broadband :p


ISP: Exatt
City: Mumbai
Specific Areas: Many Areas in Mumbai
Plan: 512kbps Unlimited
Speed Offered: 512kbps
Usage Limitation: N/A
Validity: 1 Month
Price: Rs. 1800/month
Comments: Pretty good. Hardly any downtimes. Speeds are decent. Good pings for Gamers. Even if you have access through LAN, you get a public IP so all p2p software work without a hitch you can even setup a http server. Negatives include ignorant support staff and difficulty in getting connection if your local cable operator is not affiliated with Exatt.

Im using Airtel GPRS on my 3220 EDGE phone and I get consistent 9-13 kbps. I mite get more if I had one of the fones with DKU 2 cuz the serial cable limit is reached. The reason why airtel connects suck l8 at night is cuz bout 2/3rds of the towers auto shut down at night due to low load.
