    I have used BSNL EVDO and NIC, BSNL GPRS, Airtel GPRS.
    • BSNL EVDO-
      • Speed varies from 10kBps to 200kBps, you may get less than 10kBps and more than 200kBps in one house at different places.
      • Try before you buy.
    • BSNL NIC-
      • Speed is constant but the signal disappears sometimes without any clue and you may suffer for that.
      • Download speed closes to 21kBps.
    • BSNL GPRS-
      • The cheapest 99/- unlimited on prepaid(Odisha only,don't know about the rest)
      • Browsing speed is ok.
      • forget about any major download, speed max is 5kBps.
    • Airtel GPRS-
      • Browsing speed is good,download speed closes to 13kBps MAX and avg speed is 9kBps.
      • consistant speed,300/- unlimited(Odisha only)

    I have used a Reliance Data card connection, and i found it to be very good, it never got disconnected, gave a good speed and connection was very easy. I have only had a few signal problems, but this was because i was in a remote area, but otherwise i found that for mobile connecrions Reliance data card is good, and worth trying out f a mobile connection is required.

    I heard that TATA photon unlimited usage plan has been withdrawn, is it true ?

    And what about the ad showing 16mbps speed Airtel BB.

    As on date, Reliance EVDO (BB+) is possibly the best wireless option avaialable with full mobility and very good speeds, anmd relatively good plans. The only drawback is the Fair Usage Policy.

    BSNL WLL
    Reliance/TATA 1xCDMA (these two cover almost the whole of India, there are some blind spots though)
