2Mbps from Airtel


BSNL recently introduced 2Mbps broadband bandwidth and I believe many BSNL users are getting constant/min 700Kbps bandwidth.

Airtel will probably soon be offering 2Mbps bandwith from next month i.e. Feb 2007. This news is based on the feedback I got from few of my friends who got this confirmation from the Airtel Customer Service !

Anbody else got this confirmation from Airtel ? Unlike BSNL, I hope they open up this bandwidth for users on unlimited plan as well !

    Dude, Today is 31st January 2007. I am on Airtel, I don’t think they are going to do anything at the stroke of Mid-Night. I just called up customer care, the guy started stammering & stuttering :-)) when I mentioned 2mbps. Hoping for some miracle…

    Haha.. hope for the best ! And as they say “hope is a good thing”. I hope airtel won’t let us down and I also hope the miracle should be airtel giving 2Mbps for unlimited plan as well !

    1st Feb 2007. Still at 256kbps. Airtel should come up with an interem offer till they can offer 2mbps ( if ever), like slashing their rentals by half, Or at least doubling the download limit.

    Hi, I am from chennai. today morning i got a call from Airtel people and saying that they are working with marketting team regarding 2mbps plans. I asked inorder to provide 2Mbps they should be ADSL2+. But still airtel network is in G.Dmt/G.Lite, so when you are going to upgrade?. They don’t have answer for this question. So my assumption was 2Mbps from Airtel is far away.

    Kannan, thanks for the update.

    By the way I did check on G.Dmt. It does allow upto 8Mbps. So no issues on that front I believe 🙂

    Thanks for the update. Sorry for the wrong information.

    Continued patronage! Yeah right. I am giving them just enough time till BSNL has some modems to install in my place. After that it is Bye Bye Airtel. What has me really willing to jump to BSNL is the 2am-8am unlimited downloads on the Rs.500 plan. I can leave my comp on overnight once in a while & my download manager/accelerator will do the rest.

    Sudhi, For some odd reason, I am considered as affiliated to Airtel by many guys.

    I am just a user of Airtel services like you; you should get it touch with the Airtel Customer Service.
