In my last post, I had mentioned about the new 8Mbps plan being introduced by Airtel. I opted for the 1299 (4GB download limit) plan and the same got activated yesterday.
Activation would have been happened much earlier if I wasn’t on the commercial segment ! To activate the 1299 plan, I had to rollback to the home segment !
I just did a couple of test downloads and saw the blazing download speed of more than 1MB/second ! Exactly “8” years ago, I had bought a 56kbps D-Link Modem and was downloading at 200bits/sec and gradually saw it increasing to 1-2kbps. We have come a long way since then 🙂
I was researching on the broadband speeds in different countries and as of now Japan seems to have the fastest connection @ 60Mbps !. And according to this report from speedmatters.org, USA is way far behind !
Meanwhile did you know that Sweden’s Sigbritt Lothberg has the world’s fastest Internet connection @ 40Gbps and she uses it for casual browsing !! Duh !!
