Connectivity at the office of President of India

Anurag Bhatia
Out of curiosity, I put an RTI asking President of India Secretariat about connectivity at President’s office. Questions I asked and their replies Question 1: Who is the Internet service provider? Reply: National Informatics Centre MEITY is providing internet service at President Office. Question 2: Speed of Internet connection at President’s Office? Reply: Presently the speed is 100 Mbps. Question 3: (And my favourite!) Is IPv6 deployed? Reply: IPv6 supported by most devices.

Start of competition based on speeds

Anurag Bhatia
Yesterday I read about BSNL increasing speeds from 512Kbps to 1Mbps (with caps). Today I came across news in Business Line about Bharti Airtel increasing speed on wireline DSL. This is really good believe me! I am not refering to little bit increase in speeds, but I am refering to start of competition within ISP’s based on speed. Right now it’s Wireless (3G) Vs Wireline (DSL) players, and I am sure very soon we will see competition within wireline Vs wireline players.
