    Default Tell your experience, please

    Hello sify users.
    I am a BSNL user and BSNL offers high speed connexion except for its UL plans.
    I request you to tell me what would be the advantages of Sify broadband over BSNL.
    I want at least 512 kbps speed, a free-usage of 4GB around, monthly cost within 500/-

    Cheers

    The max speed sify has is 256kbps. I cant really think of any major advantages other then sify customer care being a little bit more responsive.

    With sify its all down to your local cable operator really so if he is a technically sound person and is willing to give his customer a good service then you are ok with sify but if sify is the only provider and the cable guy know that his customers are not going anywhere then you are screwed.
    A very important thing to check would be how much power backup your cable guy has.

    Well, dear administrator, can I ask you what kind of broadband you experience at your own home? I have seen that your location is UK; there is no match with Indian BB service, then.
    Would you like to tell me about the speed/free-usage/cost &c of the BB you use for Home purpose?
    Thanks

    Hi Saurav,
    I normally reside in UK but ive been here in India for the last 3 months now.
    At UK i have been using blueyonder as my isp and the only down time i ever had was 4 hours in the last year and a half and that was pre announced I think about a fortnight in advance and the amount adjusted in the bill automatically.

    The speed I have is 10mbps down and 384kbps upload but the actual download speed I normally get when I try 10-15 downloads at one go is a little more then 8.5mbps, may be a bit more tweaking of the OS would get a little more then that.Upload is about 350kbps which is a shame
    I pay 35 quid a month for this connection and there are no limits to it but this is not the cheapest around coz there are connections of 24mbps available at much less then what I pay.

    Here in delhi these days I use sify 256kbps and we all know the rest of the story about sify...

    Thanks, admin.
    Your d/l speed was 8mbps. So, it was 1megabyte/sec isn't it?
    That is, you could download a 720mb CD within 20 minutes.

    Now you're using 256kbps Sify. Why not 500/- bsnl, or 1000/- bsnl? They have more speed than Sify.

    I have another query: 1 quid = how much Rs in Indian currency?

    Cheers

    1 British pound is aprox 86rs
    Bsnl isint available in Delhi Mtnl is but the land lines are just crap and there is too much noise in my phone line as it is so there is no point trying thier dsl connection and I dont need a connection after April as I will be back in UK by then and I dont come to India too often so its alright for the time being as I have got airtel's gprs connection for back up so I always have one or the other working.
