1 Gbps: A Dream Come True.

What would be your third wish if you found Alladin’s lamp and a genie popped out of it. Considering that you first two wishes would be a date with the super hot Katrina Kaif and a flat at Nariman Point (undoubtedly the costliest realty area in India). What would you ask for?? I don’t know about you, but I would ask the Genie to increase my broadband internet connection to be not “up to” but above 1Gbps.  Because my broadband plan says, that I have a speed of up to 2mbps but all I get is 512 Kbps if my broadband connection is working without the usual disconnections.


Life would be so better with a broadband connection of 1 gbps. No need to wait till the video on youtube buffers. I could watch matches in high definition live on my P.C. It wouldn’t just be limited to watching videos or watching live matches on my broadband internet connection but I could download all the 10 seasons i.e. 236 episodes of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. in less than 5 minutes.

Here goes the calculation. Considering that each episode would be of 1 G.B (which is very high for a 22 minute episode)it would be a total of 236 gbs. Which means 236 seconds at the rate of 1gbps. That comes to 3 minutes and 56 seconds.


One more exciting thing that you could do with a gbps broadband plan is that you could video conference with your family/friends. No irritating blurry pictures, no loss video feed. Maybe google+ would benefit from it given the fact that they have video conferencing on google +.



Leaving the fairy tale aside, by the time we get that kind of speed in India, even 1gbps broadband would seem slow. Images would be as big as 250 or 500mbs. Songs would be in gbs and well, films could very well be in terabytes. And a 1gb broadband plan would be as good as my “up to” 2mbps broadband plan .


Meanwhile Comcast the largest cable operator, home internet service provider in The U.S. has launched their 1gb internet services. And 1 gb internet broadband is being tried in different parts on a trial basis.

So till I find Alladin’s Magic Lamp whose genie would give me a speed above 1 gbps i will have to be contended with my “up to“ 512 kbps plan.

deal. Do your research first!


For example, say you saw an ad on TV or in the local newspaper for a XYZ phone model in the color you want and is listed at a price you just can’t refuse. Now you have to decide, what’s the best way to get this phone? Online? Cellular store?

If price is your main criteria, then your best option is purchasing your cell phone and calling plan online. While you can buy directly from the cellular vendor, a cheaper option is to check online. Online recharge and online buying offers the same cellular products and services as the big name cellular vendors, but at reduced prices. Sometimes even the cellular accessories are included at no cost to you.

One thing to keep in mind when considering a cell phone and calling plan purchase from a third-party vendor (not the actual service provider, i.e., Airtel, Tata Docomo, Vodafone, Reliance) is to read the terms and conditions of the contract very carefully.

If rebates are a deciding factor for your cell phone and calling plan purchase, please make sure you read these terms as well. Rebates can have a lot of strings attached, such as having to wait six months before you can apply for the rebate, and even then you only have a one-month window to turn it in or the rebate is invalid. So be careful when you use a rebate for signing up for your cell phone and calling plan contract. You don’t want to lose out on the rebate if it’s impossible to satisfy its terms.

Be sure to also compare carriers when considering a cellular phone and calling plan purchase. Not all carriers have the same coverage areas (domestic vs. Domestic AND international) and customer service can vary greatly depending on the carrier. Again, DO YOUR RESEARCH! Match your calling needs with the best and CHEAPEST cell phone and calling plan you can get. You will save your hard-earned money and grief later down the road.


Also while selecting your mobile prepaid plans you can always opt for online recharge. Mobile plans and packs are available online for free. You can compare and select the best mobile plan that suits you. One more advantage of online recharge or e recharge is that you get free coupons which can be used later. These free coupons are of equivalent or sometimes higher amount of the online recharge amount. Thus your online recharge becomes free online recharge.
