BSNL, Just gettin better!!!

Happy days are here again!! The Christmas just got better with the news coming in from BSNL!! A 2 mbps broadband @ 250pm. Wow!! the new year will bring this offer for all existing BSNL sufferes ( sorry, surfers ) too…

Ok, now don’t ask!! Dedicated or shared bandwidth, any modem issues, hidden lineman charges, cool call center which makes you call only in daytime and in the night phones just keep ringing…Hope they know it all and wanna just keep promising, all the way. You bet! BSNL is far better till it develops a line fault, modem issue of username/password corruption etc…

By it’s face value the announcement seems successful, a dream come true for every netzian, I want 2007 tomorrow!!!!! don’t you!!

    The article seems to suggest that this is a limited connection. whats the point givine 2mbps at a 1GB/month limit.. i’d rather prefer 256kbps unlimited. Hope they have a unlimited conn as well – dont mind paying upto 1k for it if it’s 2mbps :)

    I have their 512 kbps service. Rarely get more than 300. Let us see what “up to 2 mbps” will eventually mean.

    I have both Reliance and BSNL for around an year now, Reliance has failed me only once so far. BSNL is down at least once a month. They are doing work for Marathahalli bridge saar, so please wait 3 hours. Saar, DNS server went down, 30 minutes.

    Bottom line, want good uptime (work from home), have 2 DSLs.

    To SILKBOARD’s comments above – utter rubbish, BSNL DNS servers have not gone down once in the last 5 months, and I am connected 24 hours without any hassles, many users gets more than the promised bandwidth. I myself get ~270kbps on a 256kbps connection at all times of day or night.
    Your’s looks like a tall tale to me.

    Hey Ravi, relax. Learn to trust others, if you want others to do the same.

    If you are so confident of Dataone’s uptime, try working from home with just dataone DSL. And we will talk after 1 or 2 months.

    BTW, did anyone get mbps speeds yet? I see that it has improved a bit, getting ~ 400 kbps regularly since yesterday. May be an upgrade is in the works.

    Use OpenDNS instead of BSNL’s DNS
