Depends on what cabling is used in your premises. If it is 4 conductor cable then no - it is limited to 100mbps. If its proper cat5e then yes. You can always ask ACT to replace the cable. They'll do it free of cost.
Yeah friend is on 1999 plan and he didn't change his cabling for 150mbps. Had to get a Gigabit router though!
Yeah except Hyderabad everyone's getting that 1.5TB extra for 6 months.Some how Bangalore will be the last one to get any good offers. I still dint understand why
Oh damn, ACT Fibernet must have on its way to filing bankruptcy. Btw, I miss your speedtest posts brags.
Btw, Excell broadband has started offering tempting plans.
Apart from Extra months you also get 400GB data on a 6 month plans
There's a flyer at my house which mentions no FUP at all. Just saw that yesterday. Is this true? No fup at all??
However, ACT did end up installing their switch box thingy in my house. Since they said it would consume only little power, i thought it would be an additional plug only but after the drilling and nailing wires, they said they have to connect it directly to the line. I hope it is safe. I guess removing their stuff and repairing broken walls would cost a lot? Nonetheless I've lost trust in ACT. Next time I'll take Airtel or local provider.
Apparently its a FTTH plan. Chances are you might get nearly 280mbps+ .. There's a guy on IBF who subscribed to this plan and is getting good speeds.Except it will available for like 10 people in Bangalore. They can't even get 24 Mbps in my apartment.

Static IP Rs 196/month on a yearly payment sucks!!!! Depleting IPV4, Can't blame the ISP.Due to double NAT, one can’t access FTP in secure mode, one has to use plain-text FTP, which implied ACT sees all your data. also majority of provider don’t accept unencrypted FTP connection. This happened with me and I’m forced to buy a vpn.
BSNL/VSNL? I guess you need to upgrade. They're long gone, No one buys Bandwidth From them.BSNL/vsnl sucks donkeys ass, is based on outdated infrastructure. ACT use this cable. ACT is exhausted of IP hence they are double NATing. ACT can never be a reliable provider at any high speed.

I just don't want to comment in this. i can only say please do a little more research. learn about the type of ISP in India, mostly about licencing and limitation of licencing.Actually no one has that kind of International bandwidth to support 100mbps+ at all times. So poor Speedtest results to USA/EUROPE!
They told me that. But I don't like how they connect it directly to the line. It seems dangerous but looks like I do it everywhere. Also, I had told them beforehand that I live in a rented flat and might have to terminate the connection. ACT guy didn't tell me clearly at all how much work they'd have to do. The previous installation(Hathway) took around 20min while ACT took 3hrs with 6 people coming.A discount of Rs.100 is given on the bill if the switch box is installed in your place. Check with them.

I get your point. asking money for Dedicated IP. But if you look at earlier scenario... They used to charge Just 70 for Static IP, Now everyone charges 300% more than what was there 6-7 years back. be it ISP, Web hosting provider Etc.Why end user even pay 100/- extra because they don't want to upgrade their infra ? now they blocking FTP, tomorrow they will block another protocol and blackmail specific group of user users for money.
You should have stopped the installation when you saw the work being done.that. But I don't like how they connect it directly to the line. It seems dangerous but looks like I do it everywhere.

Right. But the installation people had already clipped the wires by then and started removing the switch box by themselves. I should have still stopped it but what can I do now. I guess others should be more alert of this. Surely the ACT representative should have talked in detail about the work involved, I never thought they'd go this far in free installationYou should have stopped the installation when you saw the work being done.
