    Smile BSNL's New USB Data Card

    BSNL has launched new USB data card for interenet. It costs only Rs.225 per month and gives unlimited acces. Speed is quite good. But if somebody feel that the speed is low just type "netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=highlyrestricted" without the " signs in the Command Prompt. Be sure to run the Command Prompt with Administrator right...The surfing and download speed will effectively increase..

    Edited- font size decreased from 6 to normal.

    Any ideas why? The network is already saturated? Or there are no takers for the same?

    No this is not the Reason data cards are not having high speed they are having up to 144 Kbps but evdo is having more speed up to 2mbps and evdo is easily available where BB is not feasiable. for more speed people are diverted towards EVDO

    The service here is huge hit.the exact reason for not known. but i am geuessing

    *They don't have any equipment left(Data card)
    *They have reached max capacity

    Also, officials are here in typical BSNL style are clueless on availability of new connections

    initial charge to buy the equipment is Rs. 2800. It also has rental plan. If you have bsnl lanphone in home then you can rent this with a Rs. 1000 refundable deposit. In that case the rent is Rs. 100 per month, i.e you have yo pay Rs. 325 per month with rental plan,,,,

    It depends on lot of users mainly Signal Quality,No of Users ACtive etc.

    When i used this, i got around 400kbps to 700kpbs speed average which is very good as its unlimited.

    I am guessing that you are asking me so here is the speed details as per the phamplet i got

    For EVDO cards
    Internet speed upto 2.4mbps

    For nic cards
    Internet speed upto 144kbps

    If i were you then i would be buying EVDO cards ,what ever that means

    Data card supports max of 144kbps

    U are speaking of EVDO which promises 2.5mbps and gives 700kbps-1 mbps

    Edit : Seems like Tejaswy beat me into it !!

    Earlier i had written about this on my blog:
    Everything About BSNL EvDO Data Card | Gaurish Sharma Live


    copying from there:
    What is CDMA 1x ?

    CDMA 1x is the previous version or the older version of EVDO which has speed upto 144kbps. As EvDO is still in Nascent stage of deployment very few areas have Evdo BTS (base transmitting stations), rest are still CDMA 1x. If BTS near you is not Evdo enabled then you will get CDMA 1x speeds of upto144kbps.

    also a nice site for information:

    what is EVDO
    Evolution-Data Optimized or Evolution-Data only, abbreviated as EV-DO or EVDO and often EV, is a telecommunications standard for the wireless transmission of data through radio signals, typically for broadband Internet access. It uses multiplexing techniques such as Code division multiple access (CDMA) as well as Frequency division duplex (FDD) to maximize the amount of data transmitted.


    It is standardized by 3rd Generation Partnership Project 2 (3GPP2) as part of the CDMA2000 family of standards and has been adopted by many mobile phone service providers around the world – particularly those previously employing CDMA networks, as opposed to GSM networks.


    There have been several revisions of the standard, named alphabetically starting with the first as Rev. A (”revision A”) while the first standard is referred to simply as Rev. 0.


    The EV-DO feature of CDMA2000 networks provides access to mobile devices with air interface speeds of up to 2.4 Mbit/s with Rev. 0 and up to 3.1 Mbit/s with Rev. A. High-Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA), a competing technology for Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (W-CDMA), along with the new Qualcomm Rev. A modems can maintain both circuit switched voice and packet data calls from the same radio; this is not possible with Qualcomm Rev. 0 chipsets. It provides an IP based network.

    what is NIC- network interface card, low speed data transfer ,cheap compared to evdo ,roming facility not available yet

    tarrif is given below

    Both of them cost pretty much the same.

    But i guess as some one mentioned earlier EVDO is not available everywhere

    They should allow roaming on it.
    May b e charge a one time thing

    the actul speed in EVDO depends on sevveral factors. but the most important is the linear distance from the nearest EVDO tower (beyond 2.5 KM, speed starts to drop) and presence of large buildings in the neibourhood (also disrupts signal strength). But u can expect about 1.5 - 2 mbps speeds under normal situations.

    signal strength and speed is mainly dependent on
    1.distance
    2. traffic
    3 no. of subscriber
    4. line of sight

    etc
