Oh u got me wrong, I am a noob when it comes to networking, just wanted to know why Gigabit ports are considered better, I know the transfer speeds are good but normal ports also do the job ?I guess that smiley showed more excitement that it warranted. :|
Gigabit ports on a router.. the cheap ones don't have it. That's all I wanted to say.
Most of the computers (post 2006) have inbuilt Gigabit ethernet ports. Theoretically, it supports a speed of 133 MB/s. The normal 100 Mbps ports on most routers are only capable of supporting data transfers of upto 10-12 Mbps.Oh u got me wrong, I am a noob when it comes to networking, just wanted to know why Gigabit ports are considered better, I know the transfer speeds are good but normal ports also do the job ?
check these out .. might helpWhich is this plan you upgraded to? I'm using the 2MBPS (1MBPS post FUP) from Airtel @2.3k per month plan but then again I don't think they offer anything better here in Kolkata anyways other than my current plan.
Here it's also almost the same mate. People get a 2MBPS connection and after a 30GB FUP the speed is reduced to 256KBPS. I singed up with Airtel 7 years ago and my plan was IIRC 1MBPS then and later changed to 2MBPS unlimited (post 30GB FUP - 1MBPS). Since then they sent me a letter stating that I was a VIP customer of some sorts (!) and they would make an exception in my case since the connection has been there for 7 years and they would continue to keep the post FUP speed to 1MBPS and not reduce it to a measly 256KBPS.Black_Hawk - i was on the same plan as u i think (but my fup made it 256kbps) after 100gb limit.. my bill used to come round 2.5k .. ive shifted to a 8mb plan and after fup it's 512k after 175gb limit and its 2599.. so i thought its worth the upgrade.. lol will try to limit my use and loving the way webpages load and even the ping times have improoved.. i use 3 computers + an xbox connected to this thing.. worthy upgrade for sure .. im sure they will start this in kolkata soon aswell, check their broadband page.
