People using Tata Indicom Broadband (and several other services here in India) seem to be affected by heavy packet loss in their Internet connections. When I called up the Tata Indicom Customer Care almost in what seemed to be the umpteenth time I was calling them in last two days, I was told about some "submarine cable damage", "main server issue" and few other such things.

Airtel's blunder? or slapdash Police?

whatever it was, it was the innocent that suffered as always. Bangalore Mirror has this very disturbing story about an unfortunate 26 year old from Bangalore. Quote:
"Pune. Police here have washed their hands off the wrongful detention of a 26 year old techie from Bangalore, blaming telecom major and Internet service provider Airtel for giving them incorrect information.
