    Default BSNL 3G speed

    I know someone who has been using BSNL 3G sim in Bangalore for a couple of weeks and when I asked them about the service and speed I was told the following:

    Coverage was widely available in Bangalore, and the signal is varied according to areas.

    Max speed on BSNL 3G is 378kbps for download and 250kbps for upload
    Max speed on BSNL 3.5G is 1102kbps for download and 510kbps for upload

    I am using MTNL 3G and also used BSNL 3G in multiple cities on roaming.
    Both MTNL & BSNL offers HSDPA service with upto 3 mbps speeds. However, speed depends on the handset used and if handset supports only 3G (unfortunately most of the so called 3G enabled sets from Nokia fall in this group) and not HSDPA, speeds would be limited to 384 kbps.

    I am not satisfied with downloading and uploading rates. but for video calls(for which 3G is used merely) i find it good.

    I'm using Nokia 5800 XpressMusic.Just now I activated my existing 2G SIM to 3G through SMS.
    My 2G SIM Prepaid is of Tamilnadu and I'm now at Trivandrum (Roaming).Tested with a 4 min Youtube Video through Youtube App from Ovi Store.
    Damn its very fast compared to GPRS..

    Cheers,

    It will be faster than GPRS but not as much as the maximum attainable speed in 3 G.
