15G Scam Updates

Blogged on 11-May-14 04:50:00 pm in Announcements -- Viewed by : 7365 views Fans

we transferred the usage data to an Excel file, put in some formulae and did some more checking.... throws up many more questions.....

we have uploaded the PDF to http://concept4e.com/transfer/C4E-AIRTEL-BBUsage-Analysis.pdf

we appreciate if you could look at this and if more 'jokes' can be noticed, pls share with us.... Thanks


Queries to Airtel

Line Nos 6, 18, 27, 34 and 42
How is the usage calculated… If the last time entry for the date is on the last line, where is the closing time for the relevant bandwidth usage ? As you can see the formula is returning a not-possible result

Line Nos 22
How is the usage calculated… between what hours did we use up 1.15 GB ? According to us, between 12:02:20 and 12:02:20 is zero secs :-)

Line Nos 23

How is zero usage calculated by you ? We would like to update our mathematical skills too pls :-) :-)

Generic
Why is there no standard time-frames for bandwidth calculation ? Like Hourly or every 3 hours or so ?

If its according to our usage, then Line Nos. 1, 2 & 3 (and 20 to 23) gives very fishy timings… it looks very calculated to the secondsAverage speeds are this atrocious ?

a 15G Scam ?

Couple of days back, we got the usual bandwidth-usage-data email from Airtel and were shocked to find that all 15GB of bandwidth had been used in 4 days between 5th and 9th...

The billing cycle starts on 5th and between 8.38AM and 11:38AM, the reading shows a consumption of 13.4 GB !!!! Now, we are not NASA or ISRO and the modem is switched off when the office is closed...

so we sent a query to AirTel....Someone called up asap and told us that there was a mistake and that they would revert the bandwidth to our a/c.... so when I asked them for an explanation, they disconnected....

this sorta perked up our antennae and we decided to probe further... We asked them for further information on the usage, which they claim is not possible as they don't archive data !!!!! After listening to hours of listening to IVRS and getting thro the ineffective, clueless call-centre idiots, we managed to reach someone who promised to check with the 'back-end' team and revert... at this point, we aired at our suspicions of an internal scam and wanted to talk to some senior VP or some internal Vigilance team... this Mr. Velmurugan assured that he will revert, so we waited...

Last night, he called me and informed that the back-end 'found-out' that we have consumed the data and that nothing else could be done about it....there is no way they can provide IP addresses etc about the usage..... if we wanted to, we could send a mail for further escalation. Well. We have decided to escalate through a Consumer Forum…

Now, what do you think ? we have two fixed systems and 2 laptops.. our plan is 8Mbps and we don’t watch porn at office is it possible to actually use 13 GB in such a short time, unless someone was downloading 20 movies at the same time … and at 8:30 am ? even assuming that our security has been compromise and we are being leeched from an external source, we are in a commercial complex, where estabs open only by 10am. The office is on the terrace and we don’t get signals from the modem beyond 30 ft…

We are amazed at the indifference of Airtel and so we are posting here to find out what others feel about this.. do you feel that we are being taken for a ride and that something fishy is going on ?

Feedback pls … Thanks
