    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.

    that is not the exact speed of the download, that's just the maximum speed supported by your device

    I didn't say it is the download speed.What I said is "bandwidth"...Actual download speed may be 8 times(approx..) less than that of the bandwidth..

    not really
    what you are saying is that the relation between kilobit and kilobyte

    as per your conception
    BW = 931kbps then the download speed should be
    931/8= 120kBps apprx

    but what I am suggesting is that the link speed is 931kbps,
    which means the maximum supported BW is 931kbps = 120kBps approx

    but the download speed may come as low as 256kbps = 32kBps

    You are wrong, dude..........
    The mobile phones connect with PC at 115, 230, 460, 931 kbps of speed. That is the speed of connection between both. You will only get that much speed that is limiting between your mobile and your network.......

    oho

    you still don't understand

    there is difference between real download speed(speed you see in practical while downloading a file) and link speed(maximum bandwidth capability)

    what the site suggests is that the download speed(not the link or connection speed) is
    10mbps = (10/8)mBps = 1.25mBps----------check the difference(caps "B" and small "b")
    why divided by 8
    because

    8bit = 1byte
    => 10 megabit/sec = 10/8 megabytes/sec
    => 10 megabit/sec = 1.25 megabytes/sec

    so there is no relation between download speed and link speed in terms of divided by 8

    both of them can be calculated in bits(b) and bytes(B)

    BSNL offers HSDPA service on UMTS 2100 band. But the handset also needs to have HSDPA (most nokia sets are 3G only)

    Exclamation 5800XM with 3G

    Hi, ajithv, how do you find your 5800XM for accessing internet etc... and overall performance? I am using this Model for about one year with GPRS connectivity. Tell me about 5800XM for 3G. Here in our State (Mizoram), even though BSNL has launched 3G service, network is not good yet.

    @gagan,

    @puchu is correct. its just a marketting gimmick used all over the world by many providers.

    2mbps sounds a lot better than 240 kBps.

    Mega vs. Kilo.

    or Mega bit vs kilo Byte.

    My 2mbps Broadband line at home will only give file download speeds of 220-240 kBps as shown by any browser.

    Arrow 3g bsnl speed

    BSNL provides upto 3 mbps of speed of intrernet... yes its true

    i m using 3g in Ranchi and i have purchased a HSDPA usb 3g modem which supports upto 7.2 mbps HSDPA and 5.76 mbps HSUPA of speed and when i connect it gradually speed increases upto 200 - 300 kbps but when i start to download any file or use torrent client the graph just grows up to 1 >2 >3 mbps
    and fluctuates in between.

    speed chek and monitoring software is given with the modem itself (inbuilt)

    i m posting this bcoz i have read many threads that BSNL 3g speed is providing upto 1mbps and minimum 512kbps of speed.

    The speed is proportional to various variables such as the present levels of network congestion and the distance of the tower. Once 3G is commercially launched by other private operators, you can expect a boost in the existing speed levels.

    Exclamation

    Mobile Broadband provides access to the internet using a mobile network. It can deliver speeds somewhat similar to a cable broadband. Future mobile networks are expected to deliver even better speeds ranging beyond 100Mbps. The mobile broadband providers in UK have started adapting various new mobile technologies like 3G and 4G to improve existing speeds. The Average Mobile Broadband Speed offered in the country is between 3.6Mbps to 7.2Mbps

    Thumbs up

    Hey you guys. I am actually confused here.

    When you say 225kbps, do you mean that you are downloading a file in windows and it shows 225kBps or 225kbps?

    The difference is kilo-bits vs kilo-bytes.

    One byte is 8bits.

    The reason I ask is that there is a big difference in the two nomenclatures.

    When BSNL say that they provide 3.6mbps connection speed, it means that the max speed you would see when you are downloading from a good source on the net is 384 kBps.

    I use BSNL 3G to connect in Blore / Hassan / Mangalore / Mysore in Karnataka. I am getting 100kBps (1.2mbps) connection with just one - two bars of signal strength).

    Am sure a lot of you know the nomenclature but just clarifying.

    BSNL 3G performance in Kerala is very good and especially in kochi and Trivandrum.

    They are planning to spread the services to many areas in kerala soon.

    Also i heard that some parts of india BSNL is going to upgrade the platform to 7.2Mbps or 14.4 Mbps within some months

    Lightbulb how consistent is it ?

    Hey guys, after seeing so many posts about its speed, planning to buy one..
    How good is their datacard or modem or whatever they give with the 3g sim ??

    I am planning to go to unlimited plan of 1359/- Rs .
    So how much speed in "kilo BYTES" per second can I expect ??
    How consistent is it for torrents ?? ( using utorrent ?)

    Currently using the pathetic broadband of bsnl, 2mbps connection, and imho, it sucks

    (btw, sorry for revoking an old thread )

    that doesn't seem like a unlimited plan offer ?? is it ?
    anyway, I just want to know is the datacard capable of providing good service or should we make our own alternatives ??

    Option 1 :
    Please uncheck ADSL2+ box (Also bitswap enabled.
    Option 2:
    Try tcp/ip optimizer from speedguide.net.
    You modem is synchronising to correct speed viz 2 Mbps.
    Option 3 :
    Try GoogleDNS/ Opendns
    8.8.8.8 & 8.8.4.4 or 208.67.220.220 and 208.67.222.222
    2.
    Mention the browser you use.

    thats the bitswap setting on my router..

    and btw, I was using google dns, 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 till now, just now switched to bsnl's dns for testing

    what other screenshot do you need ?? pls ask and help me out

    ps : will try tcp optimizer and report back in minutes

    browser using : mostly chrome, sometimes when I am mad, use ie9 beta

    well, ok, after running tcp/ optimiser in "optimised" mode, I am seeing speeds of 180 ~ 190 KBPS (yes, kilo bytes). A partial relief I must say..

    btw, my wifi router (wrt320n) is running at 5ghz band, 40mhz bw, N mode only.. (if that does have to do something)

    WIFI routers are in the band 2.4 to 2.5 GHZ. (approx)
    Also 3G spectrum ( will confirm later if needed)
    try to select Channel 6 or 11 or
    if option is available choose "AUTO' mode.

    2. See in "Broadband How to ......" forum for guides by@Just4Kix.
    using adsl modem +wifi router guides available.
    Use them as reference.
    Usually the Wizard will set up the connection.
    feedback.

    well, in dd-wrt forum I read 5ghz with auto channel would give max throughput.. so using it.. and anyway, I removed wifi out of the equation and tried.. directly connecting my laptop to the modem through ethernet port.. Everything is still same.. I am getting torrents (healthy ones) at 180kBps and youtube watching still sucks .. Big time..

    well, ok, after running tcp/ optimiser in "optimised" mode, I am seeing speeds of 180 ~ 190 KBPS (yes, kilo bytes). A partial relief I must say..
    btw, my wifi router (wrt320n) is running at 5ghz band, 40mhz bw, N mode only.. (if that does have to do something)
    Test speed here both in LAN mode and wifi mode.

    teracom datacard....I am getting weak signal.......

    1.Mention model number. also issued by MTNL locked.
    2.
    try to check at a higher plane/height and in a more open space
    for "line of sight" reception.
    3.
    A review and extract
    source Google search:
    Speed: As it is wireless broadband the speeds are quite variable as compared to wire line broadband using ADSL 2+ technology but that does not imply that you do not get smooth broadband experience. We carried out several speed tests with Teracom 3G data card on different sites and the speeds we experienced were in the range of 600kbps to 1.5Mbps which is quite amazing and satisfactory. Upload speed Is quite slow and ranges between 100kbps-300kbps . Major factors that impede download speed are factors like 3G network in the area, no. of applications running on your computer, network traffic etc ....
    4.
    test speeds here

    5.
    see post no 36. for speed comparison.

    ok, they are pretty much same on an average of 10 tests I conducted...
    The speed varies from 180~190 KBPS, torrent speeds go upto 190KBPS max...

    When you say 225kbps, do you mean that you are downloading a file in windows and it shows 225kBps or 225kbps?

    The difference is kilo-bits vs kilo-bytes.

    One byte is 8bits.

    The reason I ask is that there is a big difference in the two nomenclatures.

    When BSNL say that they provide 3.6mbps connection speed, it means that the max speed you would see when you are downloading from a good source on the net is 384 kBps.

    I use BSNL 3G to connect in Blore / Hassan / Mangalore / Mysore in Karnataka. I am getting 100kBps (1.2mbps) connection with just one - two bars of signal strength).

    Am sure a lot of you know the nomenclature but just clarifying.
    Woooooo!. sorry to mention that! That was the actual speed of downloading in the download manager. it varies from 150 kbps to 380 kbps thats why the average of 225 kbps. About 7 mins for 100 mb file. thats good...isn't it?

    How good is their datacard or modem or whatever they give with the 3g sim ??

    I am planning to go to unlimited plan of 1359/- Rs .
    So how much speed in "kilo BYTES" per second can I expect ??
    How consistent is it for torrents ?? ( using utorrent ?)

    Currently using the pathetic broadband of bsnl, 2mbps connection, and imho, it sucks

    (btw, sorry for revoking an old thread )
    I think it is better to stick with the BSNL provided data card.

    1. Whatever happens to it you throw it on their face.
    2. It is pre-configured to work with BSNL data sims.
    3. You can use windows dialer to dial modem in case of frequent disconnections.
    4. It has external antenna socket, which can be very helpful in low signal areas.

    Now in Chennai, I believe, 7.2Mbps is not enabled. I am getting nearly 3.52Mbps speed in Direct and Torrent downloads and 1.8 to 2.0Mbps in uploads.

    But my card is Sierra AC 306 3G Data card bought from eBay India, which is 21Mbps download and 5.76Mbps upload compatible.

    NOKIA 5800 XM supports HSDPA, 3.6 Mbps

    So enjoy

    Is there any FUP's on the unlimited connection??
    Also tell me what are the factors which determine the speed???

    It is 100% PURE UNLIMITED. No FUP.

    Factors determining the speed......Lot of things as I have posted for EVDO.

    I don't know whether here or in another forum. If possible, I will give the link or send Personal message to you. Or open in a new thread.
