now a days operators are capping speeds. 2g capable of providing 236 kbps now is at 64 kbps with very high ping rates ..unable to browse and in case of 3g god knows what the operators want to save{by not giving good plans }and do with 3g
bsnl gave 750/month unlimited 3g when private operators started rolling their 3g services but now we all know
so where from cisco says internet speed going up…pricing of decent plans are definitely going up, bsnl also increased prices recently ..

I don’t understand “average ‘broadband’ speed will grow 3.5-fold from 2012 to 2017, from 1.9 Mbps to 7 Mbps”.

I don’t think BSNL will ever going to give 7 Mbps broadband speed at Rs 250. BSNL has not upgraded its speed of 2 Mbps in last 5 years. Also don’t expect them to upgrade to 7 Mbps in next 5 years. Also 990% broadband users never reach 1.9Mbps speed.

Cisco doesn’t know anything about broadband in India.
