    Default BSNL 2mbps plan unlimited at night

    Here is a quick summary of this plan you guys probbably missed a few bits when you say you can download enough.
    Monthly charge : Rs. 500 /- comes down to Rs. 417 /- if you pay 5000rs for 1 year
    Speed: 256 Kbps to 2Mbps
    Limits: 2.5 GB for usage during the day 8 am to 2 am next day
    Night Unlimited: YES (from 2 am to 8 am)
    Extra charge if traffic exceeds imposed limits: 80 paise per MB
    Minimum hire period: 3 months
    Security Deposit: None

    Can someone who is using BSNL confirm the correctness of BSNL's billing system? Do they goof up for the usage or something like that? Also, do these guys count upload figures? what is the upload speed like for those who have been upgraded to 2mbps?

    Yes BSNL and MTNL dont allow torrents but anyone who is in the know can use any open port to use torrents.Be it any isp they cant completely ban torrents.

    So for those who have this plan get set and go for your torrents at night

    Please do leave your comments if you have any.

    But the problem is that Indian users dont know the trick to use torrents in such isps that does not allow torrents but if used it is against their law.

    You can download the torrent via bsnl line. I have 256 unlimited line and i download nearly 50Gb most of the stuffs are from torrent. All you have to do is open a port in your modem and assign the port number in you torrent client.

    Ans:There billing system is accurate enough, its just da problem of syncing with there time server which results in heavy payoffs

    Admin: Also, do these guys count upload figures? what is the upload speed like for those who have been upgraded to 2mbps?
    Ans: yes, the upload figures are also counted. The upload speed is around 60kBps.. good enuf for adsl

    Port Blocking
    There is port blocking but sometimes you don't experience it. Let me tell why.
    Some new versions(Azureous in my case) automatically configure the ports if there is port blocking, as companies making these clients are also aware of port blocking.
    Some times its also possible that the same client is not able to configure itself in that case we have to manually do the settings.

    i usually get around 1.8mbps like most of the people(~215-220KBps).
    Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
    Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
    Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?

    i used to hv home plan 500...its the best in all respect except for torrents...it gives good spd...if u use the night unlimited peiod then u can dwnld massive amount....but if ur dwnloding torent ..say a dvd-r of 4.3 gb then ur left with choice of pausing dwnld during daytime...in nigts speed becomes one tenth allmost...so its difficult to complete the dwnld...so i reverted back to ul 750 scheme....this gives pathetic speed but atleast i can dwnld from torrents....

    i used to get 250 kbs using dwnld manager in home 500....i can dwnld 5/6 gb per day....but when it comes to torrents over 2.5 gb(the limit of this scheme) u sd do the whole thing after 2 at night&this is the difficult part ..seeders will not oblige in most cases...so for u the best choice is HOME 500..thanks..

    torrent speeds depends on many factors & as for rapidshare you will get good speeds only if you are a premium user as rapidshare has capped speeds for free users now to 60KBps.
    Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
    Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
    Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?

    ans.1. not sure but i think you can.however better confirm this at your local bsnl office by meeting with accounts officer.
    ans.2. minimum hire period means you can not change your plan from existing to a lower cost plan but at some exchanges they take it as no plan change.
    ans.3. search google
    ans 4. search google

    To avail night unlimited, you need to switch off and On the modem a little after 2.00 am and a little before 8.00 am. 250 KBps is the maximum speed. Expect between 150 KBps - 200 KBps. But is still ten times what UL 750 can offer.

    So is the speed 256 KBPS or 2 GB? Or it fluctuates between the both?

    If you ask me, it is a nice plan. But day time limit is very less. But many manage using Adblock and flashblock add ons. Better choose Home Combo 600. It has 2.5 GB limit. You can check the plans here

    http://bsnl.in/service/New_BB_postpaid.htm

    Go through various plans and choose the one you like. If you want more help, try this
