    BSNL learn from MTNL!
    256 Kbps is useless. Even 2G speeds are better in some areas.
    Spending Rs. 650 for this kind of speed for which 144p resolution videos in youtube are also not buffered smoothly is not worth.
    The only good point about BSNL is the fact that it has still the largest Broadband consumer base. But this might change if you do not take suggestions and feedback seriously.
    Already there have been a huge migration trend in Metros but unfortunately those kind of services are not available in Goa.

    Very good move. In India 256kbp 2G speed is broadband. We have to make it minimum 1Mbps.

    Good move by MTNL to increase upload speed. In era of Skype and Youtube we need good upload speed to upload video and Skype video call. I am still stuck with my ISP upload speed of 256kbps and download speed of 4mbps.

  • aravind November 13, 2013 6:34 pm

    Mtnl always thinking about customer satisfaction, but here (Chennai) Bsnl is Sleeping with their 1990′s plan.

  • tpb November 13, 2013 1:46 pm

    Can you not make atleast one plan for heavy downloaders? 165GB will finish in a matter of days at 8Mbps. And if you have to cut the speed, can you not atleast give half the speed of the plan? 1.5Mbps is less than 20% of 8Mbps.

  • Human November 13, 2013 1:17 pm

    When will i get the speed do i have to reapply for plans?

  • Dump Head November 13, 2013 12:38 pm

    Attention,bsnl minimum speed will be 1.5 mbps after the establishment of next generation exchanges.

    • Akhil Mohan November 13, 2013 7:42 pm

      It’s no surprise you are called Dump Head :p

  • parveen November 13, 2013 12:22 pm

    when mtnl will bring 1mbps minumum to delhi mtnl delhi think about broadband plans in delhi mtnl mumbai gives better plans

  • Ganesh November 13, 2013 11:29 am

    BSNL are you listening?? Get your act together and become more like MTNL.

  • Keshav Jha November 13, 2013 10:47 am

    I think a good move and very good plans by MTNL. Speed less than 1 mbps should not be termed as broadband. MTNL should provide broadband directly by modem and without a landline or they should provide some reasonable tariff for landline also.

  • Dy4me November 13, 2013 6:23 am

    When can we expect this increase in Upload speed?

  • bose November 12, 2013 11:22 pm

    never trust mtnl. they will not regularise these plans after 90 days. mtnl earlier withdrew and changed unlimited 550 combo plan benefits after 90 days. they will do so once again for these newly launched so called promotional plans. if they have intentions of continuing or regularising the plans why offer it as promotional for 90 days in first place? commonsense?

    • anil November 13, 2013 12:08 am

      True. Agree absolutely. Mtnl cannot be trusted.

  • SUDHAKAR November 12, 2013 11:14 pm

    Whats the use of only 512 Kbps upload speed?. The upload speed must be the same as the download speed.

    • asw November 13, 2013 1:48 pm

      “The upload speed must be the same as the download speed.”…..Good luck finding even one plan on earth where thats the case. also, NOBODY uploads more than they download.

      • S.Sudhakar November 13, 2013 2:35 pm

        What bothers you if upload speed is same as download?. If you use only download, then do not comment here.

      • Sunil November 29, 2013 3:48 am

        For many users, uploading files is quite a bit slower than downloading files. This is usually normal, because most high-speed Internet connections, including cable modems and DSL, are asymmetric — they are designed to provide much better speed for downloading than uploading. Since most users spend much more time downloading (which includes viewing web pages or multimedia files) than they do uploading, high speed Internet providers have designed their systems to give priority to downloading. So if your upload speed appears to be slower than your download speed, this is probably expected.

        Another factor to be aware of is that providers advertise their speeds in kilobits, whereas Fetch reports speeds in kilobytes. 8 bits equal 1 byte, so the numbers you see in Fetch will appear to be smaller than the numbers advertised for your connection. You must multiply the number you see in Fetch by 8 for an accurate comparison. For instance, a 384/128 DSL connection is rated for 384 kilobits per second download, and 128 kilobits per second upload — which is equivalent to 48 kilobytes per second download and 16 kilobytes per second upload.

        Your upload and download speeds will almost never match the maximum advertised speed of your connection. It’s normal to only get 80-90% of the advertised maximum, and in the small print of your service provider’s advertising you’ll find that they only promise “up to” the advertised speed, not that you will always get that speed. This happens for several reasons. First, your connection may be shared with other people in your building or neighborhood, so if a lot of other people are using the Internet you may experience a slowdown. Second, servers may be busy uploading and downloading files for many different users, so they are unable to provide the maximum possible speed for your files. Finally, other network activity on your computer may slow down your transfer, since it must all share the same connection. If you try to transfer two files at the same time (in different transfer windows), each transfer will go slower because Fetch must split the network connection between them. Surfing the web or answering your email should only have a minor impact on transfer speeds.

    They closed their 512Kbps plan in Delhi for new customer but no upgradation.

  • Sidharth Mathur November 12, 2013 8:19 pm

    Any news of MTNL Delhi following the lead of Mumbai regarding these plans ?… Here the max is 4 Mbps… Would be delighted if they launch 8 mbps similar plans here in Delhi as well ..

    • Esmail November 13, 2013 12:02 am

      8Mbps plans here in mumbai work with the help of line bonding modems where MTNL uses two pairs of copper wires each giving max of 4Mbps speed and the modem binds the two pairs to give a single line with 8Mbps max speed. Also here they provide VDSL and FTTH connections with Max speeds of 10 and 20Mbps.

  • Shiv November 12, 2013 7:36 pm

    Called up on 1500, and they didnt even know! Lol! Also, dont know what system they use, it was down too!!

    But never the less Good Plans, for sure.

    @Bafna Ji: I hope you would have also seen the offering of weinternet Saw an adv on Sunday, in newspaper, they are offering, 10 Mbps for 600?? Any further information/ feedback?

    • Esmail November 12, 2013 9:35 pm

      I had called up on their cc number and they said it will cost 1500 for installation of equipment which will be accepted in cheque and it can be a PDC. Since the installation will happen 8 days after giving the cheque. The services they said will start from 1st Dec. Further clarification on the tariffs said the plan will cost Rs.810 inclusive of taxes for 10Mbps truly unlimited without any FUP. Only thing is that I have never heard the name if this company before and so it sounds fishy since the plan sounds too good to be true. Though I have decided to give it a try, giving a post dated cheque for 1st dec, and if they don’t come to install the CPE I can surely do a stop payment for the same through my bank.

      • Shiv Mishra November 12, 2013 11:46 pm

        Ya Esmail….even I have done the same…and I had the same concern…if enthusiasts like you or me or even Bafna ji has no clue(assuming since he’s yet to revert)….I m not sure…..anyways these people are coming to meet me tomorrow…shall keep posted…

        • Esmail November 13, 2013 12:12 am

          I had spoken to them yesterday and the lady had said the guy will come today to collect the cheque but no one showed up today, lets see, you post your experience, we shall know soon the truth behind it. I read online that weinternet is a re branding for Nivyah infrastructure and telecom services Ltd.

          • Shiv November 13, 2013 2:06 pm

            yeah. and Nivyah is almost a trusted brand in Chennai circle AFAIK. however i am still waiting for the guy to come to my office…may be too much of load…just guessing though!!

            • Shiv November 19, 2013 7:41 pm

              Yet to get any news from we internet.

  • Ankur Mhatre November 12, 2013 7:34 pm

    Nice to see that extra speed. I started with 512 then it upgraded to 752 then now finally 1.

  • Akhil Mohan November 12, 2013 7:32 pm

    MTNL is facing the heat from other operators. BSNL will never upgrade because they dont face any competition.

    • Simon November 13, 2013 8:02 pm

      BSNL already upgraded last year
      Minumum speed from 256Kbps to 512Kbps
      MTNL is doing first to know the traffic handling
      If its good then it will be followed in BSNL too

  • Esmail November 12, 2013 6:58 pm

    I have already submitted an application for migrating to 1Mbps post FUP on my FTTH connection but I checked out the fine print on the MTNL website and it says ‘These are promotional plans and are valid for a period of 90 days starting from 12/11/2013′ any clarification on this clause Bafna ji? what will be the tariffs post 90 days?

    • Sanjay Bafna November 12, 2013 7:08 pm

      All new Plans will be continued or regularized after 90 days :)

      • Rahul Gupta November 12, 2013 7:43 pm

        That means bsnl will also bring those plans as both bring more or less same plan

        • sam November 12, 2013 8:18 pm

          No.

          Please do a little bit of searching before making such statements.

          • Rahul Gupta November 13, 2013 7:48 am

            I m asking bro

            • Abhijit S November 13, 2013 11:25 am

              MTNL is present only in Delhi & Mumbai while BSNL offers service in reminaing states. Hence, it is not easy for BSNL. May be they do not want to because of their monopoly.

  • vikas November 12, 2013 6:49 pm

    What about delhi circle??
