    I am currently using MTNL Broadband Connection,
    which costs more than regular.. as its old plan and not updated constantly.
    Now, MTNL is closing all old plans, I am confused with their new plans.

    MTNL Plans = MTNL Mumbai

    I want to know which plan will be better if I choose MTNL.

    Also other than MTNL, other internet providers in Mumbai city?
    and their best plans?

    And what about other services like DC+ connection?
    is this still available?

    Please Need Help ASAP.

    Thank You.

    No, MTNL is too costly.
    Which area in Mumbai? Local providers give stable, cheap connections where I stay.

    Just ask your cable operator, but there might be others. Usually, these pamphlets are given out with newspapers.

    Shared speed mentioned on their site..

    Which means?
    Same IP address or same connection will be shared by more than one customer..?
    And what about speed?

    For 30 Mbps speed, what will happen to it???

    No ISP gives dedicated connection speed to home consumers,that is much higher & given in corporate plans only.Actual speeds will depend on time & no. of heavy users in your area but it can be safely assumed that most of the time one should be able to get advertised/near advertised speeds with a decent ISP(not everyone download/use 1TB+ a month though I usually upload around 8TB per month but then I am not your usual net user :D ).

    MTNL too??
    But I get 2 Mbps speed all the time.. No slow speeds on working time or any other time.
    Also it does have Dynamic IP feature.

    Yes,MTNL is just like any other ISP.The reason you get 2mbps all the time is because it is 2mbps only :) Dynamic IP is also default for home users,static IP can be used for commercial purposes hence it is never free(not talking about static internal/shared IP given by many cable ISPs as these are not unique to a user).Excitel gives 100mbps plans in Delhi for ~900 but can you imagine no slowdowns if 10 guys start downloading/uploading at full 100mbps(~1gbps) at same time in an area.
