Nimbuzz Ping Will Not Be Available Till September 1st, 2012

August 22nd, 2012

Hi guys,

Due to recent restrictions on SMS imposed by the Indian Government, Nimbuzz Ping will not be available to use till the 1st of September. Although Nimbuzz Ping is a nifty utility which helps you keep in touch with each other without the need for a smartphone, it has been classified under the A2P promotional SMS category and therefore restricted due to National Security reasons.

We apologize for this and assure you that Nimbuzz Ping will be back up as soon as the restriction is lifted. Till then you can use our web messenger to keep in touch with your friends and family.

Stay Safe. Stay Connected.

Broadband connections growing in India – TRAI

June 7th, 2010

INTERNET for web

AlooTechie has stated that according to the latest figures released by Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) the number of broadband connections in the country has grown to 9 million in April 2010 from 8.75 million in March 2010 registering 2.8 per cent growth.

The total number of broadband subscribers as on March 31, 2009 was 6.22 million and in addition there were 11.09 million internet subscribers.

It’s really exciting to see this increase and know that more of us have the possibility of going online via their PC. The access to internet leads to innovation, economic growth and a better education. I really hope this number will grow even faster :) .

Airtel slashes broadband rates.. When will mobile internet rates drop?

August 17th, 2009


In a game changing move for the Indian broadband market Airtel has slashed the pricing for the unlimited 1mbps and unlimited 512kpbs plans by 56% and 68% respectively. This is Airtel’s second move in the recent past to redefine consumer broadband experience. In April 2009, Airtel had launched 16mbps broadband with tariff plans of monthly data transfer charging Rs. 2999/20 GB and Rs. 4999/50 GB.

The good times for Indian broadband users are expected to gather steam with more and more operators slashing broadband rates and bumping up speeds (Airtel, MTNL, TATA Indicom, and full list here). This is being fueled by Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) indicating that the Government should redefine broadband services making it mandatory for operators to offer at least 2Mbps speed.

What are your views on this development?
