    Default MTNL 3G Speed test results

    I have got two Mtnl 3G connections with different plans. One is a monthly Rs1650 plan that gives me 200GB per month and other one is Rs4500 for six months which again gives 200GB which you can use during the 6 months that it is valid for. I use the monthly plan data card on a laptop purely for downloading and it runs 24/7 downloading and uploading one thing or the other. I also use this connection to keep my cloud storage upto date.

    The second one which is for 6 months for Rs4500 is used purely for browsing and other light stuff so the 200GB allowance would last for the 6 months.

    Here is the Mtnl 3G speed test result for you :

    I used a Reliance 3G dongle for this (max support 21mbps) with a TP link router and a Netgear wifi USB adapter while doing this test. Plugging the Reliance 3g modem straight into the computer may give a marginal boot. Will try that some time. Netgear USB adapter because the integrated WLAN card is being used for other purposes.

    Not the best in the world when it comes to uploading but a constant 2.75mbps is what I get while downloading which is not bad considering the price I pay for it.

    Lets see what your speed tests look like. This test was done around 7PM which is a busy time Speed would be different if I did it middle of the night I believe.

    My MTNL 3G speed has recently increased without me having to do anything. Download speed is well above 3mbps but the upload speed has remained the same as before. MTNL probably improved their network.

    Even that is pretty good for the price we pay but MTNL can improve this a lot if they wanted to. Hopefully the new government in Center will pull some strings and get MTNL to work towards better services in future.

    So far I am impressed with their services. After one month use, I am very happy with their cheap and best service. Yes their customer care service need to be tweak a little more.
    One reason might be of having good service is the location of MTNL sanchar haat in Bhikaji Cama Place area.

    However I really wanted them to provide a minimum of more than 4Mbps speed, considering that they recently started giving 8Mbps on their broadband line, I hope they increase their 3G speed soon.

    Yes that would be a good development but I have never seen speed more then 2.5- 2.6mbps on Mtnl 3g. I have been using mtnl 3g for a long time. The price advantage is such that I tend to overlook the drawbacks. When I have to download large chunks of files MTNL 3g does the job. I leave downloads running over night on a laptop and leave it on without even looking whats happening because it keeps on reconnecting if the connection breaks.

    I have noticed that the browsing experience is a lot better after 12:00am and before 9am but during peak times it drags especially in the evening but it is still worth the price we pay
