Today the software and the devices we use are more data intensive and the amount of data they are using is quite high.
SLT or Sri Lanka Telecom forced users like me to chance to a connection which provides higher data speeds,yet having a Fair Usage Policy Quota by making the previous connection very slow.
But now this quota is proving to be not enough and needs to be increased if we are to have a proper internet experience.
Youtube, Facebook and all the other commonly used websites now stream all the media in HD. So if you watch a 20 minute video it consumes more than 1GB. How on earth we are supposed to cope with 20GB???
Also users of the previous packages are being harrested with reduced speeds and hidden download limits.
I am a regular internet user who has not downloaded a single torrent in the last month. Yet my speeds are reduced. Is this really a Fair Usage Policy from the customers side?
Join with me to sign the following petition and force SLT to be more customer focused than being just another ISP.
Also to petition against the SLTRC is also reponsible for this as they are the governing body who keeps their eyes shut.
Even though they are promissing a minimum bandwidth of 2Mbps this is what they are giving the consumers(Less than half the minimum promissed rate): http://us.speedtest.trc.gov.lk/TRCSpeed/LB/US20130102195511617907032.jpg
