    I'm not looking forward to actual download speeds users are getting in various cities across India. Few of the reviews I've read so far are all positive. Frankly speaking 1 Mbps speed for ~Rs. 3k looks good and given the tradition of BSNL, I expect the costs to come down to 50% in next few months. So, can someone post screenshots of the speed tests and inform us whether the service is worth the price?
