      Closing Vendors Only section   06/11/2017

      The Vendors Only section on IVG was started at a time when games retail and e-commerce were pretty much non-existent in India. But with the growing popularity of e-commerce players like Amazon and Flipkart and specialist retailers like Games the Shop, we don't feel a section like this serves much purpose anymore. And even small and new businesses now have easy access to payment gateways and social media to promote their businesses. We've also been noticing a lack of activity in the section over the last year or too. That's not even taking into consideration all the times we've allowed access to vendors who either don't stay in business long enough, or use IVG to commit fraud and cheat members.   So in view of the above, we've decided to close the Vendors Only section from June 30. Starting July, the section will be removed, along with all the threads and posts within it. All users currently part of the IVG Authorised Vendor group, will be moved to the Members group.   That brings us to the topic of how to approach/deal with businesses on IVG.   IVG was started as a community that is for gamers first, so we don't want to see the forums flooded with retailers, rental services, etc using this community for free advertising. So as things stand, retailers will not be allowed to sell their products or promote their businesses on IVG.   Members who come across useful services or retailers that the rest of IVG ought to know about can use the Game Deals section to start a discussion, but this is not to be used by businesses themselves. IVG Staff will close any topics that come across as advertising.   If any would like to use the forums to talk about their business, they would need permission from admins first (you can write to staff via the Contact Us link at the bottom of the forums).

40-50 kBps on a 256k UL line? How is that even possible? Theoretically, you shouldn't be able to exceed a transfer rate of 32 kBps. And an upload speed of 30 kBps? That's like, I don't know, like NOTHING I have ever heard of. Are you sure you are on the 256 kbps UL line and not on the 2M line?

LOL dude im sure its 256, ive checked my download and upload limits too, dont remember the site

 

I wouldn't trust the sites all that much, you might want to check your sustained transfer rate on a 10MB download. Because technically, your throughput can't exceed 256/8 = 32 kBps, and since BSNL isn't generous enough to offer a 1:1 or even a 0.5:1 upload ratio, I'd say your maximum uploads should be at a sustained 8 to 12 kBps tops. I am on the same 256k Home UL 900+ plan as well, and 40-50 kBps just seems impossible. You might want to double check with your ISP as to what plan you are actually on. Were you on any other BSNL plan before switching to the 256k UL line, something like a 512k line, since the speeds you posted seem good enough for a 512k line in actuality.
