    help me for grow up my mb/ps upto 500 mb/ps

  • Nickss April 5, 2013 12:36 pm

    I will surely give this a try, just imagine the speed of 40 MBPS, really it will be great.

  • Prabhu March 30, 2013 2:28 am

    I saw hodings in hyderabad today about the 40 mbps plans.. Later found this article.. i called airtel to upgrade my airtel broadband plan.. they say, there is no such thing. they say, they dont have that plan at all in airtel.. i dint knew what to say expect to disconnect the call.. :(

  • Gopi March 29, 2013 2:29 pm

    Let me tell you airtel has many unethical practices in business which gives it bad name.They do this to increase their revenue.

    By friend had horrible experience with airtel broadband.THey used to false bill him,harass him with due and also charge for some crap software called pc secure without customer consent.FInally my friend changed to beam telecom and is very happy.

    Beam provides superior service, transparent billing and ping around 8ms.I being myself bsnl user for 10year in hyd is tempted to change to beam but couldn’t change as i am afraid their service may go bad some day or they might practice unethical things someday.

    The good thing is if you speak loud to these private cos and they listen.But bsnl follows typical govt structure and provides atleast transparent billing but bad service sometimes.

    Overall in hyd beam and bsnl are best if you know how to deal with service issues speaking loud and complaining.

  • Bharat Kumar March 28, 2013 5:05 pm

    Which areas of Hyd? Do they draw a copper line or a fiber to the consumer premises?

  • addy March 28, 2013 2:25 pm

    Sorry I’m doing a question apart from the topic but I wanted to know…
    Does any one knows a method to transfer balance from one docomo no. to other docomo no.?

  • Pratap March 28, 2013 1:29 pm

    what to do with 40MBPS ?

    I think 2MBPS is good speed , if you are actually getting this. we have one plan in MAH circle by reliance wireline , / wifi Rs.999/- 12MBPS for 25GB after that 1MBPS all time for a month .

    If you are not downloading any crap movies , then i think 2MBPS is good speed where we can watch 1024HD quality you tube streams .

    let me know any once else is doing something better than downloading .. :-)

    • Anshul June 3, 2013 5:47 pm

      Yes, Someone is… There are people “uploading” content… on youtube, their dropbox account, and other all sorts of tutorials and content that makes internet so awesome. All sorts of things that are data centric requires bandwidth, but you know it depends on person to person, so dont tell me 2mbps is great.

  • jai March 28, 2013 12:29 pm

    Good. Finally, someone in India is offering broadband speeds like the rest of the world. Still have a long way to go to reach the 100+Mbps speeds they provide in some parts of the world.

  • Jagannath:W.B March 28, 2013 10:55 am

    Network and speed basis airtel is best but, there is a but only when the price of every plan/tariff.everyone wants a good speed in cheaper rate because a huge customer of every operater is up to students like us. But eagerly said airtel is really for corporate provider now a days.

  • Abhii March 27, 2013 10:40 pm

    3g operator should give unlimited browsing at minimum 1mbps constant speed for Rs 500 and browsing+streaming pack for Rs 999

    • SS March 28, 2013 9:05 am

      Correctly Said!

    • Tharun George March 28, 2013 2:30 pm

      They should at least give full speed 3G night unlimited plans like offered by BSNL and other broadband.

  • Ganesh March 27, 2013 7:58 pm

    3500 Rupees?? Seriously??? No thank you Airtel! You can have it yourself!

  • S.Sudhakar March 27, 2013 2:07 pm

    I am satisfied with BSNL wired broadband Rs.800 plan – 1 Mbps ** upto 6 GB and 512 Kbps *** beyond 6 GB.

    ** – Upload speed will be 768 Kbps
    *** – Upload speed will be 512 Kbps

    The only thing I hate is WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE. The broadband is up for atleast 350 days in a year. This is enough for me. No hidden costs, no shocking bills etc.

    • Suresh March 28, 2013 12:32 pm

      If you are happy with 1mbps (which is not considered broadband in most countries), then why even bother reading about 40mbps. You are talking 40 times the speed. How can anyone can tolerate 512kbps? Some of us dont like to see “buffering” when we try to stream online video.

  • abhay jaipur March 27, 2013 7:57 am

    to all,if a person ports to new operator then is it posible to track his previous call- records from his old operator..:)

    • DB March 28, 2013 11:07 am

      @ abhay jaipur
      Please do not give incorrect information – you CANNOT track a call details of a customer who has ported into a new operator, as the calls/sms/data is routed through a new switch, new IN (Billing System) etc.

      • VENKAT March 28, 2013 1:23 pm

        @DB, Abhay asked question! he did not give any false information. He just want to clarify his doubt it seems. please read his comment again!

  • dskushwaha March 27, 2013 6:28 am

    If you get full speed all the time you would exhaust 100 GB in approx 5 hours. Then what is the use of high speed.
    It is like using supersonic jet to travel 10 or 20 kms.

  • Esmail March 27, 2013 12:19 am

    Fine for corporate offices with multiple users, for normal individual home use too costly..!

  • Priya March 27, 2013 12:03 am

    Well said JOY. I think your “friend” is busy with some work. He will surely come back with nice comments like BSNL is best, BSNL only started broadband, bla bla bla…. i am eagerly waiting for his reply :)

  • Sreedhar March 26, 2013 11:04 pm

    Well, it seems like Airtel has felt a lot of heat from BEAM TELE in Hyderabad city. Beam literally has brought internet revolution in HYD., by introducing Fiber optics to home and totally rationalised internet tarrifs by offering 15MBPS at Rs 1110/- which is more than enough. Max. people who want to use internet at homes, prefer Beam tele if there is feasibility for connection.
    Looks like Airtel has still not learnt a lesson taught by Beam in lowering the tariffs.
    3.2K and 4K are really high tariffs.

  • raj March 26, 2013 10:13 pm

  • Joy March 26, 2013 6:42 pm

    Hope that my learned friend over here does not complaint now of India being a technologically ‘slum’ country :)

    • SS March 26, 2013 9:06 pm

      LOL, LOL ha ha! Really smart person you are and I know whom you are pointing towards.

    • MR.XYZ March 26, 2013 11:04 pm

    • S.Sudhakar March 27, 2013 2:04 pm

      First of all note the point that 3G is still now not affordable by common man and is costly with FUP.

      What is the use of just launching a costly service?. As everyone knows, airtel is never customer friendly both in mobile and broadband segment.

      India becomes technologically rich country only when 3G reaches the lower class people.

      3G – flop, failure, no proper coverage in most of the urban and rural areas
      4G – costly and expected to be failure
      5G (estimated) – no one will use Rs.1000 for 500 MB data and 10 Kbps (not KB/s) after data limit.

      India is still slum in terms of technology implementation. British rule was far more better. British people laid Mettupalaiyam – Ooty hill train track. Indians failed to maintain it properly. If Indian railway had brain they should have conducted tests and converted the hill track to broad gauge (if possible).

        Very Bad views!

      • Pratap M March 28, 2013 1:40 pm

        hi S.Sudhakar,

        why you feel so backward? it is not country , which itself grow towards SKY.

        we people have power to change the country , look at the TATA at this age he is stating airline with airasia , there are good things in INDIA , and all around world people are coming to catch those .

        we are people who manager their 100MBPS line right here form PUNE , HYD and BLORE , we give them IT and what they require , few of are not ready to change so we are not showing our graph upwards.

        if people like you and me start with politics , this will change in few years , just ask yourself about you life before 10 years without internet , and compare this . technology is just to help us and not become depress or lazy :-)

        enjoy the life as it is … and stop crying about where you born…:-)

      • sakthi March 28, 2013 2:58 pm

        Yes U R Correct ! Sudhakar. I agree with u! When 3G comes the 2G internet plan was hike and they give only actual speed of 2g. When 5G comes 2G ,3G plans are also getting high.

        The Train track example is good ! only technical people think like this ! 90% of railway track was made by British People.
        Now no one doesn’t have capability to maintain this.

  • VENKAT March 26, 2013 5:55 pm

    Gud. Dear TT,Do you have any information about reduction in 3G tariffs in coming two months? i am planning to take new broadband connection. if they have plans to reduce 3G prices i will continue with my 3g modem. presently i am using idea 253 plan in a.p which give 1GB data per month. Please confirm

  • SS March 26, 2013 4:29 pm

    That’s good but should be Rs 2200. Lets hope Google optical fibre internet to come india.
    As most of you know, it offers 1Gbps for FREE! Yes its free but you’ll have to pay a whooping $300 for installation and remember that’s all in United States.

    In India, these things appear like a dream but 40Mb/ps plans by Airtel show that its not impossible.

    • Tharun George March 26, 2013 5:06 pm

      Google Fiber 1Gbps is not free. It costs $70/month. 5Mbps Google fiber is free and has to pay $300 installation.

      Also its only available in one city in US. They are just testing it.

      • SS March 26, 2013 8:19 pm

        Yeah, i apologize for my mistake I have not seen that carefully. but 5Mb/ps for $0 is awesome for me though $300 for installation is a big sum.

        If i would’ve lived in US, i would have asked $300 as my birthday gift but wait…..still $300 is very huge as a birthday gift. then……..let me think :-p

  • Riju March 26, 2013 3:54 pm

    40Mbps only upto 100GB……
    Speed after FUP ?

    • Tharun George March 26, 2013 5:04 pm

      I don’t think its unlimited. They will charge base rate like Rs 1/MB after 100GB

  • Kanaga Deepan N March 26, 2013 3:51 pm

    200GB may seem huge, but its NOT a big limit for 40Mbps connection, imho… Please consider my example, as I am using 48+GB per month on my 512kbps Unlimited (WiMax) plan of BSNL (with minimum 3 days downtime per month)…

    Since this is AirHELL, the speed after FUP may be 10kbps or at max 128kbps (inline with their 4G plans)…

    Once again, I want to remind that 200GB is NOT really huge, but 4000Rs is….

    • R!TTER March 26, 2013 4:25 pm

      Umm what, seriously WTH ? I’ve got a 2TB hard drive that’ll fill up inside 10 months at that FUP limit ! So unless you’re running a server or seeding torrents massively one doesn’t need 200GB in India cause we don’t have netflix/hulu et al.
      I’m not saying that it isn’t nice to have that cushion but 200GB isn’t for a normal Indian household, not to mention the fact that those who can afford such a rental really won’t need 200GB for anything essential atleast none of the stuff I’m aware of /-:

    • Tharun George March 26, 2013 5:02 pm

      I have to agree with you. I use 4Mbps Asianet with night unlimited for Rs 520/month. I can download 10GB during 2am-8am at 4Mbps speed. That is, 10GB x 30 Days= 300GB.

      At 40Mbps, one can finish 200GB in 1 days. But that is not going happen unless you decided to download all movies from internet(Like me).

      But paying 4000 for 200GB is not worth even if its 40mbps.

      • Saurabh March 26, 2013 7:23 pm

        It’s shocking to read this. 100-200-300-500GB in a month. I don’t know what you guys download but you seem to be complete download junkies who are obsessed with downloading stuff like anything. Some of my friends are also the same. They download needless stuff just for the sake of downloading. You can always see their PC or laptop running and downloads in the queue. Then they delete some stuff and re-download. It seems to be an addiction with some. They want to have the world’s biggest library of files on their PCs and they know that they can’t have.

        • R!TTER March 26, 2013 9:58 pm

          I don’t DL that much stuff you know, 70~80GB/month, what I meant was that we don’t have online streaming sites like netflix/hulu nor does an avg Indian plays online multiplayer games that much so 200GB is overkill for over 90% of the populace that has access to the internet even at home ! It is only justified if you’re running an online server or seeding torrents otherwise that FUP is pure B$ from fa!ltel, hope that clears any of your doubts ?

        • Tharun George March 26, 2013 10:15 pm

          I think I am more organized. I download only hollywood movies and Only good ones. Before I download I make a list by checking movies revenue and rotten tomato rating. If its good I download it. I started downloading 2012 movies and backwards. Now I am in 1995. I already have seen 1000+ movies and 75% are good. I watch at least 1 movie per day and doing this for last couple of years.

        • Tharun George March 26, 2013 10:40 pm

          Also I need to run download from 2am-8am just 6 hours a to download. That too will automatically done if i set correctly. Also I don’t make a file collection. After I watch i just delete it.

          I am downloading this much so I could watch all good hollywood film. When I reach certain limit I will stop. After that I need only 5 or 6GB per week to download new movies released.

      • SS March 26, 2013 8:21 pm

        Hey TG, I am feeling sad as Asianet is offering such awesome plans and its not providing services in my city! any close companion to Asianet’s plans?

        • Tharun George March 26, 2013 10:19 pm

          Asianet plan was offered as competion to BSNL 500 plan which gives 2Mbps 2.5GB with night unlimited 2am-8am.

        • Tharun George March 26, 2013 10:20 pm

          • SS March 27, 2013 9:46 am

            The big problem with BSNL broadband is outage! they don’t work for most of the time. Anyways, thanks for your reply. Not happy but satisfied with my Idea 3G.

  • Tharun George March 26, 2013 3:37 pm

    Good to see India is capable of US like Broadband speed.

    But it is 5x costly than US and still its not unlimited.

    • addy March 26, 2013 5:15 pm

      Tharun George
      Do you know when will Indian broadband company provide unlimited internet without any fup
      I know Telecom company cannot provide unlimited net as it will create a burden on tower and clog the network
      But broadband don’t need tower nor spectrum + they are not wireless even so the broadband company can easily provide unlimited net then why don’t they provide fully unlimited net with some constant speed say 40Mbps without speed downfall like in US

      • Tharun George March 26, 2013 10:27 pm

        Most website we access including google and facebook are hosted in US or other countries. So we need connectivity by undersea cable. Its very costly since only Reliance Globalcom and TATA Communications(VSNL) operates the largest undersea cables to India.

        2 companies and only few cables to India makes international bandwidth shortage and we get costly and slow broadband in our country.

        Even if 2G, 3G and 4G can provide cheap broadband, the ultimate international bandwidth is short for everyone.

    • R!TTER March 26, 2013 8:27 pm

      If I’m not mistaken, alot of similar plans in the US(~200GB FUP) cost around ~100$ so you’re wrong in this case however most of them ramp upto ~100Mbps or more & have genuine triple play(some of’em) with nice online content !

      • Tharun George March 26, 2013 10:35 pm

        I just check Comcast website and I see they provide 50Mbps unlimited at $75 per month.

        The best one i could found was by Shaw Cable in canada, 250Mbps 1TB at $115.

        • R!TTER March 26, 2013 11:07 pm

          Hmmm you seem to be a net junkie or something like that ! Anyways the point still stands i.e. most people would happily pay ~2K/month for a tenth of this speed, hell I would, with a reasonable FUP limit above ~100GB or so but the virtual monopoly ensured by our corrupt govt(no last mile access) makes this the only viable option for any citizen in need of high speed broadband access /-:

          • Tharun George March 27, 2013 6:53 am

            I am online since 2006.

            My dream plan is 10Mbps with 200GB. Price should be less than Rs 1000. I hope India will get it some day.

            • raj March 27, 2013 4:48 pm

              asha..dosa..appalam…vadaa!! With these stupid companies you never get those plans even after 10yrs

  • pradatta March 26, 2013 3:33 pm

    Good plan but what speed after FUP please explain

  • Sunny March 26, 2013 3:25 pm

    WOW……….. 40Mbps………..
