    Nowadays Micromax 300mx series modems are selling like hot cakes. i have one... use them..

    will cost you for Rs. 2300-2500/- depending on features...

    for example i have 310G modem which supports HSDPA and 180 kbps upload speed.

    my friend had an opposite experience with huaewei modem..

    i am not sure if he was using it with BSNL( of what i remember, it was locked with airtel or idea or something).. so that means he might had tweaked it for bsnl..

    he always got rocket speeds with it.. and no downs no discs.. it was looking better.. and was also cheaper i think, in the retail...

    btw, if you want to browse with speed and dont want to recharge like 1150 Rs. per month, i will like to tell you to have a 2G sim for internet..

    its cheaper for UL..

    I am using BSNL 2G sim card.(I have not changed my plan to 3G.)
    Rs. 274/- per month UL internet, with speeds about 2.8 mbps in night and around 1.5 mbps day..

    USB MICROMAX MODEM MODEL NO. 310 G.
    In the usb modem's connection manager (pc suite of Micromax modem), there is option of choosing the network mode, ie. under settings>>network mode>>HSDPA/UMTS only. (I choose this-where second option is EDGE/GPRS only).

    Now i connect, i am also using Google's dns i.e 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 for more speedier access.

    Acknowledge if you are satisfied with the answer or have further queries.

    -------BSNL PREPAID GPRS UNLIMITED or 180 DAYS-6GB INTERNET-------

    274/- per month Unlimited.
    Rs. 555/- 180 days, 6GB limit. (1GB DAY TIME ACCESS-5GB NIGHT)

    Thanks, its G8, but I want to use it on cell phone and tethering to laptop through my cell phone. I have HTC HD2 and Nokia 5800 capable of HSDPA & HSUPA. I wonder if I can use above trick on my phone!

    you can go into your settings. and change network to UMTS or 2100 mhz..

    thanks..
    enjoy!!

    Try searching this phrase in Google.


    Network Switcher v1.01 S60v3/v5 - 3G / GSM / UMTS English




    its an S60 application for Nokia 5800 which will enable you switching between default to dual network mode(UMTS as you need for HSDPA)
    ...............-------------..................
    And please i neither take credits or accountability for any bugs with what I told here..
    This is like happening with my 2G sim when I tried it on Samsung L700 3G..
    That phone has no HSDPA, and it was giving downloads at 3G rates even when my sim was Prepaid 2G.. My phone as default is on Quadband network mode..

    So it will check all networks available..

    Now if BSNL doesn't know of this flaw, or its a deliberate act. I dont care.
