    Default New 4MBPS Plan @ Rs 899

    Details of the plan :-

    COST RS 899
    4MBPS SPEED
    8GB MONTHLY BANDWITH
    WEBSITE BUILDER WORTH 250 RS
    FREE VALUE PER MONTH - 250.

    This plan is good for but not for people who don't download much. If Airel provided free upload then i would have certainly brought this plan.

    It is really cheap. But 8 GB is a bit low for 4 Mbps.

    Upload is much costly than download for ISP`s so unlimited upload is impossible.......

    By the way plan is quite good.

    yea i know, but still MTNL gives free uploads even in limited plans lol, i don't know what they are doing.

    I think AirTel should provide good 512 kbps UL plans below Rs 1000, the current one has 15GB FUP limit which is very very low and after it its back to 256 kbps speed.

    I thought it is only with BSNL people. Now understood that all broadband users irrespective of ISP are looking forward to new plans which comes below Rs. 1000.

    yea like MTNL AirTel should also reduce their prices for UL plans, coz most ppl now needs UL plans, i think MTNL has done the right thing to drop their prices for UL Plans.

    for Impatience 899 UL, they provide 4MBPS only for first 6GB and after that 256 kbps UL, so it sucks.

    So don't go for those plans, idk why AirTel is making so sucky plans.

    hi vorazeal buddy..
    Then shall I go for impatience 1099 or 1399 cuz in BSNL the comparable UL schemes give lesser browsing speed.

    ie. 512Kbps till 8gb, after 8gb its 256Kbps = Rs900/ per month (With 400 free calls)

    1Mbps till 9gb, after 9gb its 256Kbps = Rs1000/ per month (With 450 free calls)


    2Mbps till 10gb, after 10gb its 256Kbps = Rs1100 / per month (with 500 free calls)

    so all the above 3 latest BSNL schemes are more crappy than the impatience schemes. That's why I thought why not change my current BSNL Home 500 plan to any one of these impatience schemes..

    What do u say...any ideas..can u guide me..

    @vorazeal, @singhmanish,
    buddies am confused as to whether the impatience plan really sucks or not..I know the FUP limit in the impatience plans of airtel sucks..but pls compare it with the comparable BSNL schemes that I have mentioned above and then say whether it is slightly better than BSNL scheme or still sucks..

    cuz I want to know if the impatience schemes are that bad..Cuz all the while since I have experieced BSNL service which is even worse than airtel am not able to detect anything disastrously wrong with these impatience schemes except for the fup when I compare them with bsnl....pls guide me by comparing BSNL and airtel's schemes that I have mentioned..

    I want to make a decision soon abt which scheme to shift or whether to retain my present BSNL home 500 scheme (2am to 8 am UL)..that's y buddies I need help..

    Agreed! those who want faster browsing of Social Networking apllications like Farmville etc is really good plan, loads very fast, but for people those who do lot of video streaming would exhaust all of the bandwidth within few hours of using, they should provide free Unlimited bandwidth of 4Mbps on YOUTUBE site, that's the ultimate site for watching videos, provide Unlimited bandwidth on YOUTUBE.COM@ 4Mbps speed airtel babus, so we can watch videos without buffering.

    That is impossible but I think there should a plan like that.
    Like by give +200 Rs. we can watch unlimited youtube video but only at 1Mbps.

    For atleast FUP with 512 Kbps speed after crossing the limit...............

    Youtube videos buffers a lot on 1Mbps speed, they should atleast make it minimum to 2Mbps Unlimited on Youtube site and other sites 512Kbps.

    We want much from ISP`s but they are giving us that. I really want to experience a 16 Mbps unlimited internet at Home but I do not know when will this happen.

    ok you guys are telling me that this impatience scheme is good for fast browsing but not good enough for downloading as the bandwidth gets consumed pretty quickly upon watching youtube am i right?

    Actually the 3 main things I do are
    1) Intensive browsing
    2) Downloading movies from torrents (bet 2 am to 8 am in home 500 plan bsnl)
    3) downloading youtube videos and playlists of lectures from youtube (i've been doing this intensively for the past few wks (bet 2 am to 8 am)

    So these are my typical activities. So u r telling me it won't suit me am i right? Is there any other scheme that'll suit my scenario? Currently am in Home 500 plan of BSNL and thought it is a high time to say bye bye to bsnl's atrocities..BUt as I see everywhere there's a fup loophole..

    Guide me gaggan and abhi..

    I M using Reliance, never used airtel before but Reliance has no Fair Usage Policy or anything as such, M on 1Mbps Unlimited plan@ Rs.1099 per month and it's more than enough for my needs, I would suggest you go for Reliance, call 1800-3000-7777 toll free for bookings.

    location I've specified underneath my profile name..I live in Chennai, KKNagar. Am planning to invest RS1000 maximum. ORiginally budget from dad was RS 1300 for any UL scheme but after those stringent FUPs he has reduced his budget to RS 1000 for a nice UL scheme with good speed which makes youtube viewing and downloading speeds reasonably tolerable..

    Your options:

    1. BSNL EVDO Unlimited at 650
    2. UL1100 new FUP plan from BSNL. 2 Mbps till 10 GB then 256 Kbps.
    3. Two Home 500 c + connections

    Tks for the suggestions but I have some pts to make..

    1. BSNL EVDO Unlimited at 650
    I already know abt this but CDMA technology is not yet proven. From my reasearch I found out that for some of the current users the browsing speeds fluctuates violently bet 300KBps and 3.1 MBps..also the signal largely depends upon several other factors like proximity to CDMA tower, etc etc.. In my place ie. KKnagar, Chennai there is a cdma tower. still I dont wanna go for evdo.

    Also in my house dad, mom and myself will be simultaneously sharing the same broadband connection and working parallely in our laptops and desktop. BUt EvDO is a single user USB modem. And am not techy savy enough to understand the nuances of making a software based wifi hotspot using connectify or any other method. I feel I don't want to take so much of such trouble and also am not confident enough if I can configure such stuff myself..also connectify is for win 7. Mine is Win XP Pro so once again its a big headache.

    also if suppose I buy a hardware router to bypass all these troubles once again that'll add up to my overhead cost. Also I heard from evdo forums that the CDMA signal and hence the browsing speed largely depends on the altitude of placement of wifi router.

    2. UL1100 new FUP plan from BSNL. 2 Mbps till 10 GB then 256 Kbps.

    But instead of this BSNL scheme I can rather go for impatience 1099 airtel scheme which gives me 4MBps browsing speed upto 12GB and 256KBps after that..so obviously airtel's one is better right?

    3. Two Home 500 c + connections
    This is a very nice suggestion buddy But am not too sure if Dad can digest if I say this to him..anyway I'll try..

    But is there any other better solution? High speed+UL+reasonable FUP????

    2nd one that you told is good but try 3rd one too as It costs you aroung Rs. 1100/ month and you can get more than 160 GB/month of download with 3 GB/month day limit. It is for very very heavy downloading.

    @Gaggan
    yes I'll truly consider the 3rd suggestion in addition to considering the 2nd option. But my only worry is BSNL's broadband plans are all bundled with landline telephones as well which have a rental..I know Home 500c+ does not have a rental but overall when I add the sum total cost of all the 2 connections (ie. rentals of home 500 + tax for both + etc + etc) I am a bit worried if Dad will accept that as it will be well above RS 1100 am sure.

    But instead if I go for airtel's RS1099, this 1099 thing is a fixed amount and I don't think I'll end up paying too much surplus amount above 1099 by way of tax or other miscellaneous cost as opposed to option 3 above.

    So these are my worries.

    You are right , 2nd one is atleast fully unlimited. And in that you do not have to worry for anything else..........

    The 3rd plan total costs you around Rs. 1104/month with all taxes included, you can combine a Home 500 c and c+ in it. That means 225 free calls/month and 4 GB/month for the day and night unlimited.

    @Gaggan
    Since ur guidiing me excellently am now caught up in a dilemma whether to option 2 or 3 because u have given me valid points pertaining to both option 2 and 3. So am in a sort of confusion now.

    Ok if you were me or rather I think by now u must have realised what kinds of ways I use the net and my present frame of mind---now assuming if u were me which option would u go for? option 2 or option 3?

    (rem that its 4MBps in impatience schemes and only 2mbps peak speed in home 500, home 500c and home 500c+)

    I will definitly go for the 2nd one................
    Because I need high upload speed.

    If you need download of more than 120 GB/month go for 3rd one.............

    lucky you :P btw they should stop giving FUP limit for small bandwith like 15GB etc... it would be good if they provide 50GB FUP limit with 4MBPS impatience plans.
