Tata Photon+ — capping p2p software
Ananandkash on Apr 24, 2011
Tata photon is exhibiting the worst practice these days. Once I was a happy user (photon no. 9266168545, a/c no. 906605721, plan: Photon Plus 7200 Min@Rs 1000 ) but these days i am planning to switch ISP, of course, before that I would love to kick of Tata's shoddy plan. Here is my story:
1. I am subscribing to the aforementioned plan, I deserve the tauted speed of the plan, whereas I am getting below 16kbps speed while downloading using torrent files on any p2p client.
2. After some googling around I came to know it's a kind of capping that photon illegally practices to stop/restrict p2p downloading. It's a joke. I mean, every p2p downloading is no way piracy or unethically. In fact, here I am facing problems while downloading a Scintific Linux torrent, that's freely distributed. AFAIK, it's put together by Fermi and Cern Lab of America. They like many other, provide torrents to aleviate load from servers. In fact, the purpose of p2p is to lighten the main server stress and engage remote pcs to help transfer data.
3. Besides, how could a concern of Tata indulge in such dubious practice of tauting something and doing something else. Here it says I can download unlimited amount of data till I exhaust the quota of 7200 minutes. I am not another , I am spilling straight rs. 1000 towards that.
4. I would like Tata Photon people as well as users have a look at this post and act on it. Tata photon, if it can't stand upto its tall claims, should issue a disclaimer that the said unlimited downloading does not apply to p2p downloading of any sorts of material.
As of now, I am resorting to wait-and-watch for a while, till the Tata lifts such capping or comes up with a revised policy mentioning the use of p2p capping. If nothing happens then I'll lodge a complaint in consumer's court, east delhi.
Beware of Tata Photon's unlimited downloading plan. It just sucks!
