    There are no other wired broadband options available at the CRPF campus at Yelahanka apart from BSNL. Why are you not happy with BSNL? Any particular reason?

    BSNL's new plans are nice and you wont find anything cheaper then that. I dont know what other options may be available there but if you do not want BSNL's adsl then give evdo a try. BSNL EVDO will cost you Rs750 per month for unlimited usage. The problem with evdo as compared to adsl is that evdo will have high latancy and pages will load a lot slower. You may also see network congestion as lots of people use EVDO these days.

    If you decide upon getting bsnl evdo then try to get a demo from a friend or people who live near by to see how it would perform at your location.

    You can also try MTS Rs999 post paid plan that would give you 40 GB data per month. Dont forget to find out what the signal is like in your area before you buy. BSNL evdo as Smoothvibes suggested could also be looked into provided you have good signals.

    What seems to be the problem with BSNL adsl that you have?

    BSNL has frequent disconnections and they won't turn up promptly for repairs and also their plans are costlier compared to other private players like Tikona,Hathway etc

    BSNL service is poor...they won't rectify fast and plans are costlier than other pvt operators.

    Local cable operator could work well too if the guy is dedicated towards keep customer happy and attends to complaints quickly. What we have to understand is that no service can be expected to work 24/7 365 days a year and there will be downtime once in a while but what makes one ISP different from another is the time they take to rectify problems after a complaint is made. Local cable operators score well on that front.

    If you only have a speed problem with BSNL and get more then 65-70% of your plan speed then you should stick with it in my view.

    I got myself a connection from a local cable operator who is a worldphone reseller and the internet was down all night last night and it is normally down when it rains. It also does not work when the cable operator has a power cut for anything longer then 2-3 hours. I wonder why these people cannot spend money on atleast a decent backup inverter.

    Local cable operators story is the same every where unfortunately. I do find this operator very proactive when it comes to rectifying faults but the whole concept is so bad that something or the other is broken all the time and they are on the run constantly to keep things in order.

    Guys again thanks for your suggestions.
    But now I have another problem now its created by the BSNL ppl. A friend in my neighbor wants to get a BB connection from BSNL ... he has tried a lot and BSNL is not ready to install a new connection they are saying that connections are full in the area but I doubt their claim. So the question here is that how is the port full scenario determined . Is it from their end ( i mean like from the exchange) or from the end point ( i.e pole near my house)...

    It could be either one of those. If the box near the place is used to full capacity or the exchange does not have any unused ports then they cannot provide a new connection. Will have to wait till some one terminates a connection or till BSNL brings in new equipment to extend the capacity.

    But the pole near my house has only 2 connections from it ... one is mine and one more someone else has.... so is there any chance ??
    And how can you get BSNL to put extra equipment for solving this feasibility problem. As we discussed above that guy can't go for any other connection as there is no other ISP here.

    In my area people had to wait a good 4 years before they got a connection. BSNL recently changed the equipment and brought in more capacity. Unfortunately there is nothing we could do about this. If you know some one higher up then you could go talk to them may be.

    BSNL evdo is still an option and costs only Rs750 per month for unlimited usage.
