    The Internet speed is not a constant.
    varies due to line conditions/servers/
    contention ratio etc.

    Check your speed here. different times
    Each test will use about 2.6 MB data
    Airtel
    Give results here. No picture needed.

    Speed upto 2 Mbps 8 times ( *1MB file in 4 seconds) faster
    than speed upto 256Kbps. ( *1 MB file in 30 seconds )
    *conditions apply!

    Mention your modem/model make.
    If you are in wifi mode slight drop also possible.
    reported speed 210Kbps is acceptable..

    Upload:242kbps

    Delhi:

    Using Beetel - 220BX Modem
    Airtel 799 Unlimited (256kbps) plan
    Am NOT on WiFi. Using Ethernet Cable to connect to Modem.
    Speed cannot be due to line problem, I was happily getting 2mbps until a few days ago.

    Board ID: 96338L-2M-8M
    Software Version: 3.12L.01.A2pB023k.d20k_rc2

    P.S. am having problems with port forwarding in uTorrent. Will post that in another thread.
    Thanks for the help.

    kbps kBps trap!!

    You are actually getting better speeds than me.
    The downloading speed you are talking about is in Kilo BYTES per second, that is what all download managers show.
    For that I get about 26kBps, nothing more.

    What I and the ISP's tell you as speed is the kilo BITS per second.
    [To convert Bytes per second into Bits per sec Multiply by 8,
    for example ur 40kBps is = 40*8 = 320kbps!!!]

    I am calling Airtel taday.
    I live near Electronic City in Bangalore. I live in a Urban of Urban areas.
    Nearly every house on this road has a broadband connection, multiple telephone lines, so much so that BSNL has run out of telephone lines on my street!! [You cannot apply for BSNL connection here !!, although I have a connection, if Airtel troubles me too much would switch to BSNL ]

    I have recently switched over to unlimited 256 plan ( rs 649 only for combo plan ) from previous 128.
    The airtel speed test download results are between 200 to 235.Upload is the worst since it is between 60 to 110 only.Airtel asked me to use speed.west.airtel test which gives reults more than 300 at any time.

    both tests are from airtel,however in reality found only 40 to 50 % extra speed than 128.

    on complaints,the poor technicians visit and do cabling here and thereand goes away.

    any solution ?
