a big “LOL” it cannot happen in india.where you cannot even get unlimted forget about 3g


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 ..
