tcp/ip phone number in Bombay:
VSNL's Revolutionary Initiative to the
ease the connectivity problem
The people with the prefixes given in the table below have to dial only one phone
no. 4404444 and they will be connected directly to VSNL without having delays
caused by inter-exchange congestion.
|Exchange Area in Mumbai
||Access three digit prefixes
Ever since VSNL launched the dialup
Internet services in August 15, 1995, there has been a problem connecting to VSNL modems.
The problem has many elements, which are problematic. For example the actual noise on a
phone line pair, the load on the inter-exchange phone calls, especially during the peak
traffic hours. These are enumeration of some of the problems, which exists.
Now VSNL have taken an initiative, which will at least ease the problem of
inter-exchange congestion. This is a start of an approach to solve the connectivity
Actually this is totally new plan implemented by VSNL. VSNL has now decided to take a
multiple 2 Mbps pipe from major exchanges around Mumbai and terminate them directly on our
Remote Access Server. This will avoid all the congestion due to choking of MTNL trunk
exchange and are also expected to improve the performance, as these are digital lines.
Each 2 MBPS pipe has 30 dial-up lines.
This has resulted in single hunting number around the Mumbai (However lets keep our
finger crossed on this)
Hence now if customer dials 4404444 from any exchange prefixes given in the
table above, he will directly land on to VSNL network bypassing all the MTNL congestion.
A direct Internet Access has been provided from the following Exchanges to ease the
congestion on MTNL Network and to improve the accessibility. With this addition we are
adding 600 more lines for the users of MUMBAI.
The connectivity from the remaining Exchanges in Mumbai is under installation and
We welcome your feedback on the performance of this new mode of connectivity. Please
send your feedback to the us or Helpdesk at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we
can further improve the performance.
In future we look forward to all the Metros in India having this facility.
