Broadband users, TRAI has a good news for you

Consumers of India’s fixed broadband services have reason to cheer. They will now be guaranteed a minimum download speed of 512 kbps at all times instead of 64 kbps, even after they use up their assigned data limit.

Well, post-FUP speeds for all the wired broadband services in Bangalore that I am aware of have already been 512 Kbps for a few years now. But this is perhaps a good development for the Tier-2 and below cities.

In today’s age of heavy websites and live streaming, 1 Mbps should be the minimum IMO.

Are the min. download speed mentioned in OP and the post-FUP speed mentioned in your post one and the same? https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_confused.gif

They should do it for 3G instead of broadband https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_confused.gif

Then every provider will have to shutdown their services as they won’t be able to guarantee even 1kbps speeds in our country https://cdn2.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_toungueout.gif

Trai’s directive has dealt a blow to fixed broadband operators such as Bharti Airtel, Reliance Communications, Sistema Shyam Teleservices among others who had earlier this year urged the regulator to allow throttling of speeds down to 64 kbps once a customer uses up the assigned quota to prevent misuse of fixed broadband services beyond the designated quota.

As usual, those money grabbers wanted to take us back to the dark ages. I wish all of them would just shut down
Glad TRAI scuttled their plan, but I’m sure they’ll keep trying
