tips for increase my brod band speed

Tips for increase my brod band speed
1. Change BSNL DNS servers:
The main reason for slow BSNL Broadband connection speed is slow BSNL DNS servers. So, we can increase BSNL Broadband connection speed by changing default BSNL DNS servers to fast BSNL DNS servers, which can help us to increase BSNL broadband connection speed. Using public DNS servers improves speed, as BSNL has lot of users and all using the same DNS servers. So during peak time the DNS reacts very slow and takes a lot of time to translate the host address to numerical value, called IP address that your network used to connect to website.
Use these DNS servers for best speed:
2. Use Adblock Plus:
The best way to increase BSNL Broadband connection speed is to block flash and other unwanted ad material on webpage, so that page loads faster, thus make BSNL Broadband apparently fast. AdBlockPlus is a firefox addon used to block flash content of page, thus helping you to increase BSNL Broadband connection speed. This has a lot of effect as it blocks unwanted advertisements and popups thus making your internet browsing experience even better.
3. Using TCPOptimizer:
This is another software used to optimize your TCP/IP connection settings. TCP/IP determines the maximum transfer Unit(MTU) for your device. The maximum data that your connection can send or receive per packet. Best MTU setting for BSNL broadband is 1492 ( by default its 1500 that causes an extra load on your broadband connection that why disconnections occur as you are forcing your device for doing something that it is not capable off, so optimise your TCP/IP settings). You can use TCP Optimizer your BSNL network settings. Install TCPOptimizer.
4. Using Faster Fox:
With Fasterfox's unique prefetching mechanism, you can increase BSNL Broadband connection speed which recycles idle bandwidth by silently loading and caching all of the links on the page you are browsing. Prefecting deceases the load time as it already stores the copy of previous connection to the websites that you have made. So it loads faster. Install FasterFox.
5. Reducing cache space:
Reduced Cache space can be used to increase BSNL Broadband speed. You can do this as:
For Internet Explorer : Tools - Internet Options - Browsing History - Settings - Disk space to use and reduce disk space value to "50".
For Firefox: Tools - Options - Advanced - Network and look for cache space. Change value to 50.

how to speed up my broad band

 how to speed up my broad band (BSNL,MTNL)

All of you know that BSNL has Bandwidth contention ratio of 1:25 which means that 25 people may share a connection and compete for international bandwidth. That is why some people like me are experiencing less download speeds between 11:30 am to 7:30 pm.

I subscribed to 4 Mbps plan but the speed drops to as much as 256 kbps during peak hours.

An important point is local bandwidth used by sites like and other CDN powered sites are not affected. So I still get great speeds at youtube.

But downloading from many other sites is affected a lot. So to avoid this problem use the following IP proxies to get your full subscribed bandwidth.

To use these proxies effectively, initially load the webpage containing the desired video without the proxy enabled. After the webpage has loaded and if the video buffers while playing then just switch on the proxy and then replay the video or refresh the page.
Use browser plugins like Foxy Proxy, Proxy Anywhere, etc. for fast and easy switching between proxies.

I have thought a lot about this problem and I think that this problem is due to poor BGP routing issue from BSNL. All the BGP paths are passing through a selected few New York based international routers which face increased load at peak time.

The above proxies use Tata's or Reliance's BGP transit path and also their international bandwidth which have greater network capacity so I get high speeds.
Tested in Kalyan telecom region.

It should work for MTNL, Sify, Tikona, Meghbela, Hathway, Railtel and Fivenet too.
Do post your comments on this...

Since these proxies keep dying within a few days of posting and also because this post receives the maximum no. of  views, I would like to share the technique to find the right proxy if anyone is interested to find more on their own.
1. Go to
and check each ip at for a peer entry of TATA COMMUNICATIONS/VSNL.

2. Now you may test the proxy status and speed by downloading some file or at

3. You may see the results for yourself by selecting a distant server like Honolulu(HI) at and running the test with and without the proxy and then compare the two results.

4. If there are no proxies in the xroxy list, try increasing the latency time but never compromise on reliability.

5. Spectranet, Tikona, Hathway and Railtel users may use the above procedure with additional benefit of selecting proxies which have peering with BHARTI AIRTEL.

6. If highly reliable foreign proxies are required then go to in step 1.
You will get a much longer list (more work!) but at least those found by following rest of the steps wont die within a month.
