    from which sites are you trying to download?try downloading some big file from microsoft's site(directX 9 setup or directX 9 SDK)using a download manager like flashget or internet download manager with 8 simultaneous connections setting & then see how much speed you get.also try this both in day & at night especially after 10PM.

    I would wish to clarify that Home 500 plans promise a minimum speed of 256 kbps (32 kBps) and a maxmum of 2 mbps (256 kBps). This does not mean that you will get the top speed all the time. The speed that you will get depends upon the load on the shared line.

In reality this is very unlikely to happen and the customer would find the connection much faster than dial-up modems. ADSL relies on individual users not making unreasonable traffic demands on the network to provide fast access speeds for all. If you are not getting the speed you expect, it can be due to the contention ratio but also to many other factors including the congestion at the remote site you are accessing.

    still you should get at least 170-180KBps especially during night.if you can not get these speeds even from sites like microsoft at any time of the day using any download manager then there is something wrong with your line/computer.

    I think download speed depends on site from where ur downloading. I am getting only upto 20kB/s from rapidshare and i am getting upto 170kB/s using torrent with gud sharing.

    So try different sites and see if speed is same. Try downloading using a download manager as said in above replies.

    I too have the 500 c plan in bsnl, but have been consistently getting around 300 kbps speed or around it consistently and have found nothing much of a difference even when downloading from torrents, etc. As said by just4kix above, you will not get the speed of around 2 mbps most of the time in this plan and it depends on various factors

    300kbps??you mean 300/8=37.5 KB/SEC..thats way too low for 2mbps.. i get above 120-150kb/sec all the time...most of the websites...
    if you meant 300kb/sec...i dont think thats possible!!

    250KBps is the max speed & you won't get this speed for even a few minutes constantly.average speeds varies from 215-230KBps.
