    Default Are you in BSNL old U/L plans too?

    Thanks for your report.
    I still have Photon-Huawei EC 1261 (CDMA) -quite stable- use both in my Acer laptop and Desk top. ( to be given to daughter for her new notebook this summer holidays)
    Once in a while - I use Reliance Netconnect Dongle in wifey's Apple pro Notebook when Iam at home.
    Iam yet to buy any 3G modem in the last 3 months.Just using tethered or thro Local wifi spot with 3G sim in my Nexus-One & Nexus-S phones.
    Android Phone will be spoiled if I continue like this.

    Huawei UMG 1831 or E 1752/ K4505 are obivious choices.

    Idea's Netsetter Huawei E1550 (up to 3.6 Mbps) is being sold @Rs 999 as promotion offer on the eve of 3 G launch in Hyderabad.Can be cracked and can be used as a standby GSM 2g/3G data card.

    Airtel's Huawei E-1731- Max download 3.6 Mbps only & not 7.2 mbps ??

    In Triplicane /Ice House -on the main road Iam getting 4 to 4.65 mbps in Vodaphone. which area you are testing voda?

    for unlocking you have to actually get some paid softwares.

    @ulysses

    Airtel speed reaches max 4 mbps only .
    Vodafone is upto max 4 to 5 mbps.
    I am testing from choolaimedu area.

    May be more number of users are connecting and speed doesnt exceed 5 mbps.

    Thanks for your report. I assume You used your Airtel (Huawei E-1731) unlocked data card for the above tests ?So this card is capacity above 3.6 Mbps (up to 7.2?)
    Iam getting 4 to 4.5 Mbps in Voda in my phone.
    Many were complaing about Airtel 3g speed. But You are getting up to 4 Mbps is good.
    Are you using Airtel's Rs 625 Flexi plan or debit from main a/c ?

    Airtel's Rs 625 Flexi plan also reduces the speed to dialup after post hitting the shield value.
    All airtel 3g plans are not competitive with BSNL tariffs. we have to wait for the tariff to come down for heavy usages.
