    Red face will bsnl implement the "fair usage policy" like other isp's?

    fair usage policy is being implemented by all the isp's in india except for bsnl and mtnl.regarding bsnl i personally think that since bsnl is a government owned isp it wont be that easy for them to just follow the footsteps of other private players and do what they are doing...what do you guys think?

    Default BSNL option for "FUP" limiting speed on U/L plans

    Even otherwise BSNL download speeds are not up to maximum speed.

    Because of high contention ratio nobody gets
    the full advertised speed say upto 2 Mbps!

    BSNL is implementing policies to make
    Internet/BB usage more popular, like 20@% discount for Govt employees/rural packages ( about 500 new servers in Villages ) at 50% of urban tariff etc.
    More the users, more the eqpts/exchanges
    setup required , and more employment for our people.

    Rest assured, that there won't be any cap on downloads,
    but advertised speeds will not be assured !

    Is is possible that Airtel may have implemented FUP under pressure from Movie and music industry, both domestic and Hollywood based? I mean it is an open secret that piracy via internet is rampant in India.

    I don't think BSNL will bow down to such pressure tactics from anyone.

    Hell no.. It would not be fair even if BSNL does this kinda fair usage policy

    Anyway i wont be under risk since my internet connection is just 256kbps (Hope so)

    If they decide to have a cap....the cap can be around 50 GB ~75 GB

    Sad day that instead of speculating about increase in speeds or something, we have to discuss about possible caps in downloads. Damn!!!!!

    Default why low upload/download speed

    actually internet download/upload speed dependes upon various factors even after availibility of sufficient bandwidth in the ISP network.each ISP is connected to international ISP and international ISP has its own network.BSNL being a national ISP is having sufficient bandwidth with in its network.when we download/upload any content from the internet thedownload/upload speed depends upon-
    1.At what badwidth the content supplying server is connected with the internet cloud.If it at low badwith then you will get low download/upload speed.
    2.How many users are connected with this server.
    3.Whether you are downloading/uploading from national or international server.
    4.And at last it your PC configuration,Local lead condition,Type of Broadband plan etc.
