    you will get best results as your home is not too far from the bsnl tower(just like mine) you can take bsnl and try it..

    gprs speeds cant be told like this.. they vary on different things, because based on mobile signals.

    Bro First Of All U Make Sure That Your Mobile Support Edge or 2G Technology After Enquire Nearest Bsnl Exchange Office Thats Ur Residing Location That The Towers Supports Edge Or 2G Facilty
    As U Mentioned Ur Towers Is No Far From You Hope That U Receive Better Signal Strength If It Have Edge Facility U Can Acquire The Speed Above 40Kbps To 50Kbps In 2G Networks

    He he he he
    Same here bro...
    U got poor speed due to rural area, But i m in lucknow and the tower is closer to my house also that support 2G etc. But Still i m getting max speed 10-12 kbps. I m surfing on PC through my Nokia 7210supernova which supports EDGE.
    I don't want to use BSNL 3G too, Bcs. it also gives the same speed in my area so i have sold my 3G data card. ha ha ha...

    in rural places i have seen that bsnl gives "G" in place of "E".. and so the speed decreases to a great extent.. 3G is also poor in many places..

    If u have 2g sim of bsnl then u can enjoy high speed net downloading like as 3g. First purchase nokia mobile 3g compartable, then go to seting>phone>netwrk>select umts. Then close it. Use default seting like as bsnl live. Then do personal seting create seting with bsnlnet. Make this seting ur access seting. Then you wil enjoy fast speed of net downloading 30 to 50 minimum speed some time it crosed 100 downloading. Rember if show 3g before ur signal tower in ur hand set it means your 2g sim working 3g facility . If 3g signal nt cms then do dual mode or gsm, high speed depends on signals of 3g or area. I m from chandigarh. M happy from bsnl. Nd my friends enjoy this with speed of 200 to 250 or 300 downloading speed. Thx.

    It used to as you said, I guess BSNL found out a way to limit speed. I used to use 2G SIM on unlocked Idea Net Sette 3G Data. The download speed varied from 50-220Kbps. But now I get only a max of 32 Kbps. I thought it was a speed issue from BSNL so I got myself a 3G SIM and tried it in the same data card. I got an amazing download speed of 150Kbps.
    So I guess the hacks mentioned on the internet no longer work. All you can get it max 32Kbps on 2G. To get good speed you will need 3G.

    I brought 2g sim and then activated 270 gprs plan
    Initially for 5 days got very good 3g speed upto 300 kbps download here in Pune but now yesterday most of the time 2g signal it was showing instead of 3g though sometime 3g(1/2 occasion) and speed decreases drastically to 20-30kbps

    I am using it via Huewai E3565 and T-mobile webconnect manager
    Anybody having idea to catch 3g signal/increasing speed in bsnl

    mickey pls mention ur city and the recharge plan u r using for internet. . . . . . . . I m using bsnlnet apn in bangalore with recharge of rs. 98 and speed is very dissapointing it hardly crosses 20 kbps but few months before when new gprs plans were not launched i got 100-150kbps which was good for me under all same city plan and apn . . . . . . I think the higher amount plan u choose the better speed u get . . . . What do u think?

    with current speeds i cannot believe that "high value recharge = high speeds"..

    i can achieve 2mbps at late night for half hour.

    BNSL data through mobile BTS is no longer recommended. no matter whether GPRS , or EDGE in 2G network one cant get more than 7 Kbps speed in most of the BTS s as BSNL has compressed the data input to each BTS after modifying tariff. They are throwing much of the data to 3G BTS though 3G is poor too.

    hi all, bsnl 2g gprs offers good speed at affordable price. two conditions - you must have a 3g cell phone and your nearby bsnl tower must support edge/3g services.

    i don't say u can avail 3g speed at 2g gprs cost. NO. it never happens. the 2g gprs speed is limited to 30 kbps when u download any file. but consistent and no interruption. its good at a reasonable price.

    Red face How to increase BSNL 2G internet speed

    I agree with the suggestions of member Kattribaljit dated12.2.2010. It did worked for me in Nokia 5230. Previously i was thinking that the purchase of 2G pack was a mere waste as the speed was less than 5Kb. But now i feel that it is not a waste. I can fully use that pack. Thank U very much.

    the main thing u need to know is that...u will surely get 3g speeds in 2g recharge.but for 1 or max 2 days of 2g recharge then speeed will be capped
