    Default That\'s true

    Yep that is true, only 4200 for 6 months. And for data card :

    3.6Mbps data card for 2000 Rs
    7.2Mbps data card for 2500 Rs

    Does that mean if we buy 7.2Mbps data card we will get that much speed? And what's the rate per month after 6 months?

    BSNL sells Teracom 3G modem, which is good but dialer software is buggy, better get one of Huawei or ZTE 3G Modem!

    Definitely they will regularize this amount for normal subscriber, within that period and no need to panic. Because nobody will pay more after enjoying at a particular tariff for six months.

    That's why now, I have opted for 2500 for 3 months (@ 833.3) and will again opt for 4200 for 6 months at the end of third month so that I can enjoy reduced rates for a total 9 months period ( excess 133.3 X 3 - 400 Rs. only.)

    This is what happened for EVDO tariff. During the end of March they have revised the tariff to 999 per month but offered 750 as promotional plan for registering before 1st April. But later on, they have fixed 750 as regular plan charges.

    Moreover, more 3G service providers will be competing with BSNL, within the next few weeks.

    If you are not getting other than Teracom from BSNL, you can get some good Huawei or Sierra cards from eBay India. Some cards.........

    It is better to go for 7.2Mbps or higher cards. If your tower is 7.2Mbps enabled, you may get upto 7.2Mbps depending upon all other influencial factors for wireless connectivity. 21Mbps cards may be useful for Docomo like networks.

    at present most of the BSNL BTS r powered with 3.6Mbps, and soon upgrade to 7.2Mbps will begin. So better invest on 7.2Mbps modem or higher speed. But check if it supports for GPRS/eDGE, otherwise u wll not no signal where 3G is nt present - with 2G support u can continue with internet connection at slower speed!

    I'm getting good signal with the 3G(over 95%), using a HSDPA 7.2mbps data card(Huawei E1750),sometimes my phone too(Samsung Corby Pro), still am not able to cross 3.4mbps on the BSNL 3G. Can anyone tell me why's that?

    Though your card supports 7.2Mbps, your tower may be only 3.6Mbps enabled ( and not 7.2 ). Here in Chennai also 7.2 not enabled.

    but mate, when I first got this Sim card back in August, I used to get download rates from 500 KBPS to 1 MBPS easily(with IDM-Accelerated Speeds). But now, am only getting 150 KBPS- 450 KBPS. Looks as if the speeds have been capped. I got those speeds in my home @ Chennai as well as my hostel in Kumbakonam.

    I hope you are aware of Kbps vs KBps and Mbps vs MBps.

    If your above references are only KBps and MBps, then how can you get 1MBps speeds. Even if your tower is 7.2Mbps enabled you will get only a maximum of 878.90 KBps speed. To get 1MBps speed your service should be 8.39Mbps enabled.

    Or I think only you have mentioned, approximately as 1MBps.

    However, which place in chennai you got that speed. May be their testing period ?

    I'm well aware of the distinction bro between bps and BPS. As I mentioned earlier, I use IDMan, which give me accelerated downloads. Even with 512kbps BSNL UL connection, I got speeds from 60-70KBPS which was more than the maximum 64KBPS. This was around August 20's and in Chennai, I reside in Anna Nagar area. As you said, it could be the testing period. I did get good speeds back then. And no disconnection problems were there. Now the connection gets disconnected every min if am dlng something

    My modem will get disconnected when it reaches 82 / 84*C while downloading continuously at 3.5Mbps speeds, that too after 45 minutes. The details, you might have read in another thread.

    For the past one month usage, no disconnection for any other reasons. I am in the nearby area.

    __________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ ______

    Till now I am getting that speed with my 2nd AC 306 to be returned for replacement of K4505 ( waiting for ) ....few minutes ago at 3.44PM.....

    There's only one problem. My modem is merely warm to touch and certainly nowhere close to the 83/84C hot. When downloading it gets disconnected every minute. And the worse thing? I've searched this forum completely, applied all the solutions offered(applying hotfix, auto-dialing connection etc), but none is working. What's worse? Now the speed has dropped to under 400kbps. dlng at some 30-40kbps and am having a signal strength of 96% or more always.

    Exactly. It's only two days old, was fine till today morning, was pretty good yesterday and today morning and things started going out of control later. The speed drop happened around 5 today evening and still haven't picked up. The browsing speed is same, only the download speed is crap. And I know it's not because of the download servers because am using RS Premium account and thus have good server availability all times.

    EDIT:
    It's now alrite, I mean the speed. The disconnection of course occurs but not so frequently. The speed is now averaging @500KBPS with IDMAN and RS Premium Account or any other Direct Linked Downloads. But beware of the disconnection issue when downloading only one file. I've multiple files that I queue, so that when it gets disconnected and reconnected auotmatically, IDMAN keeps on downloading. The same may not happen with single file.

    And it's been over an hour now since it got disconnected and reconnected.

    That mean you are getting around 50-60kb/s download speed ?

    @Sumanth. Sorry I didn't reply soon mate, I was having my exams... No when I said 500 KBPS, I meant only the download speed. Download speed of 500 KBPS in IDMAN. But now I've seen enough mate. It's good during the day time but lags during the evening and night time. Atmost 200 KBPS download speeds during the evening and night times. But around 500 during the day.
