Internet Service Provider ACT Fibernet has updated download speeds and monthly usage limits in Chennai, Delhi and Bangalore circle, with the following changes: Higher speeds for some plans: In some plans, ACT has introduced 150 and 200 Mbps speeds. Its highest speeds for home users earlier used to be 100 Mbps. Increased data usage before users hit their FUP Counting upload and download usage separately: This means that if your ACT connection provides 100 GB of data, then 50GB is meant for download usage while the rest 50 GB is for upload. So from now on, your data usage will be populated separately by ACT as seen below: Nikhil adds: The increase in FUP doesn't appear to be substantive. Historically, users have downloaded more than they have uploaded, which is why many ISPs apportion greater speeds to download as opposed to uploading. So, for example, for the Retail ACT Silver plan in Delhi (see chart below), users might be getting a cumulative 500 GB for Rs 1499, while they were getting only 200 GB earlier, the forced split between upload and download means, that if someone uses 500 GB for the month, they'll have some data usage left over in terms of upload, and would have maxed out on download usage and hit the 250 GB FUP pretty quickly. Meanwhile, ACT can market the fact that they're offering 500 GB till FUP, saying "conditions apply".
