The present minimum threshold of an internet connection having to offer a minimum 512kbps bandwidth to qualify as ‘broadband’ is “dismally low”, according to reports that confirmed BIF’s response to TRAI.

The BIF recommendation suggests a minimum internet bandwidth of 2Mbps, for both upload and download speeds, regardless of the medium and technology used to deliver the connection across regions in India. The BIF has also recommended segregating broadband internet connectivity into basic, fast and ultra-fast as categories, which would better help segregate fixed line internet services in India match a minimum standard in terms of quality of service.

Even this is too low. It should be 4 Mbps, if not 8... 8Mbps is the standard everyone deserves...
