    According to BSNL executives, the company will only be able to upgrade its existing subscribers from a minimum download speed of 256 kbps to 2 mbps and will not be able to offer fresh connections until March 2007.

    BSNL, India’s largest Internet service provider, has a market share of 44% with about 9 lakh broadband subscribers.

    Effective January 1, BSNL's current broadband plans will also undergo changes. The download limit in Home 250 and Business 700 plans are being enhanced to 1 GB and 4 GB from 400 MB and 2 GB, respectively. It is also bringing down the per-MB download rates from Rs 1.40 an MB to Rs 0.90 an MB in the Home 250 plan.

    India has 3 million broadband subscribers.

    Outdated news.

    All the new plans are hopeless. The ONLY unlimited plan has not been upgraded. BSNL sucks. Simple.

    Its officially on bsnl main site.

    http://bsnl.co.in/newsdetailed.php?news_id=352 :p

    but what is difference bet "256 Kbps/ Up to 2 Mbps" and " 2 mbps"

    pls check with ur ISPs. send copy to all ur friends...

    Make pressure on ISP to increase speed on what u pay.... b/s till today no private isp has announced 1 or 2 mbps speed... :mad:

    use net meter to measure speed.
