    Default Low browsing, d/l speed on Airtel Internet USB

    I am in India on vacation and on 4.6.2009 have purchased USB from Airtel Relationship Center, Alambagh, Lucknow for Rs 2999/- to get unlimited internet.

    At the time of deal, I was informed that the connection speed would be 236 kbps; the usb was activated on 5.6.09 and ever since the speed displayed on Net Warrior is between 0 - 6 kbps (aver. 2 kbps) in place of 236 kbps. The speed is very slow and is not corrected by by Airtel Relationship Center, Alambagh, Lucknow. They showed and asked me to sign on a printed plan showing 236 kbps speed at Rs 999/- per month with unlimited downloads.

    Des anybody have any previous experience on this service? Or have any suggestions- the Airtel customer care do not respond on this, neither the Airtel Relationship Center, Alambagh, Lucknow.

    ummm. so slow net

    by the way net never touches 256kbps on a usb, so its like an ideal condition,
    but as per your saying 2kbps and all that, i think this is serious..pls do check if the comp you are using is not on proxies of high firewall settings..airtel gives good services..
