    Default What ISP provides consistent and stable internet in Rohini, Delhi?

    I am sick and tired of MTNL. They are non-responsive, super unstable and so much ignorant. What ISP has consistent internet and good speeds (print not an issue) in Rohini area of Delhi? I prefer if no other phone line is required, and installation time is minimal.

    Specifically, I'm in Sector 9 (Sai Baba Aparts) and need 100% uptime. I can compromise on the speed and cost.

    If latency is not a problem then get an Airtel 3G or Vodafone 3G dongle and they both are pretty good. You would need to check what the 3G signal strength is like where you would use these connections to get a good idea of what to expect.

    I would also like to add that I am successfully using a MTNL 3G prepaid connection and it is cheapest of the lot. Rs1650 for 200GB per month and another plan that I use is Rs4500 for 6 months and that gives 200GB that you can use over six months time.

    Just out of interest, what would you use this connection for? If I had an idea what the purpose is then I could provide a better advise.

    I am kind of vary of dongle's. I've heard they are unstable in rainy weather. Not sure though.

    I need it for my work, mostly programming. I do not torrent or download a lot of stuff - but I do watch a lot of videos online. I suspect my monthly usage to be at least 60 gigs. I need (actual) download speed of at least 70-80 kbps. And I need plans that I can deactivate easily since I'm moving to the US in 3 months.

    So in short, I need connection with no landline connection, good speeds, excellent stability and decent download quota.

    Also, I might get the Airtel internet, I don't mind having an extra landline as long as it doesn't add to the cost in the long term.

    I'm looking at "Rapid 15 GB" but am having a hard time understanding what I actually get. Could you please break down the benefits vs cost for this plan? ike are the 1000 minutes A2A or to any landline/mobile?

    Thanks

    Getting an Airtel adsl connection may involve a long wait. Which mobile service provider are you using right now and do you use an android phone?

    I am posting this post using an Airtel 3G connection tethered from my Android phone and using it on my desktop computer. Never had a problem although I dont use this connection much due to high data costs as compared to Mtnl.

    I would suggest using your mobile phone with your existing service provider and get 3G activated if you dont already have it. I can help you with setting it up if you dont know how to do it. Its very straight forward both using wifi and also with a USB cable provided you have a smart phone.


    Latency is the time it takes for data to travel between your computer and the servers you connect to. It will have a marginal difference. Wireless connections have higher latency so it bring a little lag while playing online games thats all. If you are not into gaming then you don't need to think about it really as the difference it not going to be very noticeable while browsing or downloading.

    Side note: I'm not sure why my post is not showing up on this thread. I made a long one explaining what I needed.

    I just activated Vodafone 3G on my Android phone (Nexus). I get 300mb for 109, which is expensive. Is there anything that I can plug into my computer and create a wifi hotspot from there?

    Your post went into moderation as it had an external link. I replied to that very post without realizing that no one else can view it. I have cleared it now.

    There is no point making a hotspot on your computer as you can do that on your mobile phone itself. Go to settings > More setting > Tethering and portable hotspot and there you can turn on your wifi hotspot but make sure you configure security so it is password protected.

    If you do not have a wirless LAN card then you can use USB tethering by using a USB cable instead. If you want to use wifi on your desktop that does not already have a wlan then you would need a wlan card fixed into it or you could buy a usb dongle which costs a couple of hundred rupees. I use a Netgear wg111v3 which is very old and it was cheap but cant remember how much and its been doing fine for years.

    By the way Vodafone's network is one of the best in Delhi and the 10-12GB prepaid plan should cost around Rs1500 per month. Reliance is a little cheaper but to be honest nothing compares with Mtnl when it comes to price but it is not very reliable but for massive downloads its the best thing in Delhi.

    When you say Vodafones network is best in Delhi, do you mean coverage wise or tariff wise?

    Search for a Fiber broadband provider in your area if you're looking for stable and consistent internet and wary of using the dongles. I've used Reliance Broadband in Kolkata and Beam Telecom in Hyderabad. Both are great!

    No fiber in my colony, but every neighboring colony has it.

    I looked at the mtnl 3g and liked the 1650 ul plan. But i just want to know reliable its 3g is in north/east delhi, and how do i activate it or buy it.

    Dont get the 1650 plan yet. First try it out with 20-30 rs ka plan. You can buy a prepaid sim card at one of the Mtnl sanchaar huts or at any mobile phone shop that sells mtnl sim cards.
