Dial-Up 2.0

Most “broadband” providers in India offer a fairly low cost DSL product with top speeds of 256K. At 256K, you are limited to 400MB of downloads. If you go over 400MB, you will be charged per additional megabyte. Now the interesting thing, for unlimited downloading, the speed drops to 128K. Yup, I was pretty surprised by that but as someone pointed out today, the carriers are even more predatory than telecom carriers in the US.

Unlimited downloads at 256k are solowly being made available by companies like Sify but upload speeds are capped at 64K. I can’t call this Broadband, it’s more like “Dial-Up 2.0”
