    I use two connections.

    1) Dialup
    company- Dads companys private phone, private server, taken 6mb lease from Satyam, giving away free internet to employees.
    charge- free
    Uptime- has gone down only 4 times since 1.5 years, virus attacks, sasser is still in the network.
    Speed - 3.8kbps+, can get upto 13kbps stable speed if the server goes crazy(often does)
    Area - Wherever Tata Steel is present.
    recommended- U can't have it. Only employess

    2) Dailup + Daddy
    I connect to dads PC in office via RDP and download stuff there or through there to my PC, I get around 375kbps from microsoft sites

    ThumbsUp cox

    Cox High Speed Internet(www.cox.com)

    $40 per month.

    Connection speed: 4 mbps downstream
    512 kbps upstream

    Download speeds: Vary from 500 to 550 kBps.

    Downtimes: Never

    recommended? Surely if available

    I'm using 802.11 g wireless lan at home which gives the above mentioned speeds.There are 5 other ppl sharing the Lan. The download speed gets dwindled depending on their usage..(like if someone is watching streaming video)

    Ppl..I was spell bound when I saw these speeds coz..in my place in India, i used to get 4 to 5 KBps and that too with difficulty in getting in connected.
    Now, I am using wireless Lan at home in US with download speeds of 550 KBps.Man, my internet life can't get better.

    I dunno abt the cabling...but 1200 bucks is definately too much but i have no options..i stay in Hindu Colony,Dadar(E).I tried to get a connection from a diff guy but it couldnt be done coz u know how the cablewalla's work!! The other guy refused to give me a connection
    And Pacenet has become sucky coz the d/l speeds have become miserable i used to get 7-8k d/l speed constant earlier now of i get 2-3k barely...the supposed engineer from Pacenet comes to my place sees the speed..calls up some1, does a few things on the comp and still nothing happens!!!
    BTW i have stopped using pacenet since the last 2 months...coz i am not in mumbai as of now

    Location Borivli west Mumbai
    MTNL Dial up Regular
    Connection speeds 44kbps to 50kbps
    Transfer rate Day:4KBps night:5 - 5.5KBps
    No downtimes. Always connects the first time. I extensively use p2p for dloading isos on my dial up . Daily dloads--100MB to 120MB Uploads--around 50MB=150MB data transferred everyday(both ways). Use edonkey 2000 pro and am getting really goo speeds compared to othe p2p (like Kazaa lite)
    So far so good but-----
    Cost: Rs 24 + 8= Rs 32 per hour approx
    Monthly MTNL tel bills = Rs3500-4000
    Reccomended-- Hell no unless you are uber rich

    I contacted TATA dsl , Iqara , In cable , MTNL xDSL but none of them were offering broadband in my area. I see that now a days even people in smaller
    cities have got Broadband and I am still stuck with $hitty Dial up here in Mumbai.

    Now planning to go for scheme B of MTNL with dedicated phone line.
    Rs3000 refundable deposit + Rs700 a month
    expected connection speed 56Kbps and dload 5-6KBps
    http://mumbai.mtnl.net.in/telecomser...Internet-Tel-B

    Anyways anybody from borivli west has got broadband yet????

    hmmm...I noticed that most people have mixed up the diiff between kbps and KBps
    "b"=bits, "B"=bytes...
    Network speeds are traditionaly represented in kbps while files etc are repreented using KB
    so on a diall up connection at say 56kbps, a file download would happen at 56/8=7KBps (which is what many refer to as the thoroughput speed)

    BTW i have a HATHWAY 64kbps connection...get between 50-70 kbps ~~ file d/ speed of around 6-9 KBps ..i.e. 1 meg file in around 2-2.5 mins
    Just as the clouds have gone to sleep
    Angels can be seen in heaven's keep
    Alone in fear they question why
    Goddamn not an angel when I die !!!

    Quite True Abhi, many people do interchange the terms Kb and KB.
    I believe thats a major reason why many people were misled by "broadband" at 64Kbps not realising their old dial-ups were not too far away at 56Kbps.
    However its a good sign that many people including yourself are very well aware of this fact and more are increasingly becoming aware of this fact too

    Keep posting folks!

    Hi All!

    Mine is about 10 - 15 Kbps with cable modem connection, I use LinkNet as my ISP.but.... this ISP si SUX! It down to often! It cost about US$60/ Month.
    Im not suggesting you should use mine, beside it might not found around India, coz Im from Indonesia.

    The indonesian ISP is pathetic, It cost alot but the service always BAD!

    I wonder how ISP services in India?! It must be cool isn't it?

    @firefox

    well by reading this thread u should have come to know bout the indian ISP status
    it aint that good to brag about on an average we are still Hooked up in KBps line although there are people who have the capacity of providing Home Users MBps Connections but it is all up to them
    So we can only hope tht more gateways should open in india and each and every home users should get an equal share of the MBps connection

    Currently there are only 2 gateways (owner TATA and Reliance) compared to 33 of US (i think)
    correct me if i am wrong.
