How BSNL 3G became nightmare for me? Let me tell you complete story.
Why I moved to 3G from Reliance EVDO or netconnect broadband+
I was happy with my Reliance netconnect broadband+ connection. Past 2-3 months I was facing slow speed and only 256 kbps max download. Upon research found that my area now under network congestion area list. Reliance unable to give any time frame to fix this issue.So I started checking alternatives. Thats why I moved to 3G!
Why I selected BSNL 3G
I am forced to, because no other provider started 3G at that time. Few ‘non technical’ backgroud friends suggested me that speed is excellent. Ok, purchased BSNL 3G.
Shocking truth revealed on 2nd day !!!
First day went well as I connected to office VPN and did normal browsing. Next day started my experiments. Even speed touching 3Mbps, youtube buffering and skype dropping sound. After careful observation every 10 seconds it is happening.
So kept Ubuntu download and started monitoring download graph using networkx. It showed me SHOCKING truth.
SO what as it bounce back to normal speed instantly?
Let me tell you due to this you can’t make voip calls and not even any voice chat won’t work. Impact torrents and downloads. We are not paying for ‘Only browsing html sites’ right?
Here is video proof [View in full screen mode fro clarity]
Next BIG problem – SHARED PUBLIC IP and NAT
Once you connected to BSNL 3G, BSNL 3g assigns local IP instead of live public IP like other providers.. It starts with 10.x.x.x. the Internal IP within BSNL 3G network and will be unique. A few such ip addresses will be clubbed to form a user group, who should share a common WAN/Internet IP address and bandwidth.
Due to this shared ip system,
You can’t access many websites – Internet webservers face huge traffic from same public ip and they flag it as security issue.( I faced with Google, it asked me to enter captcha code as huge traffic from my IP address. Multiple sites are banning BSNL ips due this shared IP system.
You can’t use file sharing portals like Megashre, Rapidshare…they always say you alraedy you downloading something, even you are not….
You can’t connect your system from outside.
Some of VPN applications won’t work ( like PPTP VPN)
Is this with me only?
Bangalore and entire karnataka.. Try your self and see. Please share your experience here.
