Recommended Posts

I mean sp1n is always on steam

 

Also it seems ur the only one....

 

Mm..it sorted itself out. Still, sometimes I get those hostgator errors. Weird.

 

And I'm not on steam :P

 

Has anybody checked the revised Airtel plans for Delhi?

 

They're effing ridiculous! Pretty much every plan has a restriction like the following...

I don't understand. WTF?!

I am planning on taking a new internet connection from Airtel..suggest me a good plan.Am ready to shell out around 1.5k-2k per month.I will be using it mostly for online gaming (MW2 most of the time).I thought about going for the 1799 Impatience plan..but now i can't find it in the Airtel site and almost all the plans with decent speed has a very lame FUP.

Hey guys, I'm on the 1099 plan from Airtel. Been on it since January.

 

I should be getting 1mbps, but then this morning my speed suddenly dropped to 512kbps (downloads going at 64KBps) and it's stayed that way. Speed tests confirmed that the speed is now 512kbps too.

 

Rebooting/restarting the modem and router have done nothing either.

 

Thing is, when I joined the FUP cap was 100GB, which the site now lists as 15GB for new plans. When I cross 15gb my speed should go down to 256kbps for the rest of the billing cycle. BUT now the speed is 512kbps, neither the usual 1mbps, nor the 256kbps reduced speed. :( I'm nonplussed at the whole situation. I haven't exceeded the 15GB cap this month either.\

 

Btw I'm on Airtel in Chennai. Do enlighten me as to why this might be happening.

Hey guys.

So I am moving to Delhi for a couple of months (maybe more :P). Gonna live near AIIMS and need a net connection. Now I have got BSNL at home and never tried any other company.

I could think of the following off my head:

1) MTNL EVDO (heard it's pathetic)

2) MTNL BB

3) Airtel BB

Which one should I opt for ?

How much should I be looking to shell out for installation and all?

Need UL plans or a decent FUP limit.

Thanks :doh:

Edit: Need quick connection. And will get my old router.

Yeah dude, WTF is this sh*t?! Airtel is just taking advantage of their customers. This is in no way acceptable! The plans on their website are pretty much crap...every single one of them! :giggle:

AFAIK, only YOU can change your plan. So, even if your plan is discontinued, they can't move you to some other plan until you decide to.

Bsnl home 1350 user here.

What most people are saying about this plan is true :rant:

My connection is 2Mbps for the first 15gb now and then it drops to 512kbps.

Also my buddies that have home 750 now enjoy 512kbps the entire month.

If 512 is the minimum for FUP in Bsnl i have no probs with it now lol.

Yeah, but if everything was that fair and we could sue these companies for giving us the short end of the stick then this wouldn't be India :(

 

My speed is now supposed to go down to 256kbps each time I cross 15gb of traffic in a billing cycle.

 

 

Apparently, I did last month and for a week I was downgraded to, get this, 512kbps :P instead of 256kbps.. until the cycle ended 2 days back. Now i'm back at 1mbps. I'll take anything that comes my way, so I guess this is cause for a bit of cheer, though not celebration.

 

Gonna let this Airtel mess-up with me getting double the downgraded speed go unreported :giggle:
