    Hello all, One of my close friend went to US last month and got a wifi connection, speed 54Mbps @ $40/month :shock: . He said that he watches DVD quality movies and cricket matches, all glitch free, on the internet .Ok thats in US, now comming to india im just curious to know what is the maximum WIFI speed available in india. is such speed available in corparate companies (even on wires)? . I guess those companies will be having T1 lines , but what will be the transfer speed.I had read in some news paper that kushalnagar (karnataka) will be fully wifi enabled, but was restricted to 128-256 kbps(dont know why).

    And i also want to know if two local PCs with wifi connections can transfer data @ such speed between each other.

    EDIT: I had mistyped 52 for 54 MBPS changed


    PS: I didnt know where to post, in general or in Q&A

    off to "never ever" land
    sigh
    u ppl have GOT to get ur technology straight
    wifi is simply wireless lan
    its not how the isp distributes net to u
    the cable comes to ur home and attatches into a wireless router which is wirelessly connected to ur system

    THE SPEED OF THIS CONNECTION IS 54 mbps ( NOTE its not 52 )
    The technology is called Wifi and the ieee code is 802.11g

    just like the speed of a local area network is 100mbps

    just cuz the cable connects to a 100mbps card doesnt mean the speed ur isp provides is 100mbps
    similarly since the connection between wireless router and system is 54 mbps doesnt mean its 54 mbps net speed.


    the actual speed of internet depends on isp
    my best guess is its a max of 2mbps which is ofcourse awesome ..
    no such luck here
    such speeds are VERY expensive and have capped downloads ( limited amt of mb u can download )

    i gope this is clear now .

    52Mbps? Imagine getting one of these connections

    :lol: :lol:

    On the more serious note, I agree that we will need time to reach to the speed levels of western countries but the development sure is in sight. We were paying 770 bucks a year ago just for an unlimited dial-up plan (remember MTNL/BSNL internet phones?) and now we are getting connections of 256kbps in that amount. We are slow but steady :)

    I asked my friend in us to teset his connection speed using ww.testmy.net

    the test with largest file size gave the following
    and test with medium gave this
    WOW what a speed
