    tnx vspraneeth05

    ----

    today i managed to bring home a demo device from bsnl franchisee at behala ... black ZTE model .... was getting 4-5 bars of EVDO signal .... but o maaaaaaan! it was daaaaamn sloooooowwwww ..... average download rate with flashget was 50kB/s, jumping from 10-100kB/s & torrents were trailing about 30kB/s ... wat kinda broadband is this!!!!! am form behala thana area, kolkata & according to bsnl map, theres 5 BTS within 1km radius

    360p youtube vdos suffer buffering somtimes .... & even with google DNS, browsing is not satisfactory at all

    am used to reliance 3G which gives 400-600kB/s day & 900-1100kB/s night, downloading 700mb movies at 15min .... now am really confused whether to stick to reliance 15GB 1300rs ... or come to EVDO UL 750rs

    -----

    btw, how much do i have to pay cash for taking a new evdo prepay connection? 1199 + 20(sim) + 350(activation) + 750(UL) ????? tats wat the franchisee said

    but acc to bsnl site it sud b == 1199 (which will giv 399 balance) + 351(topup) = device + 1m UL ....right???

    I did not get the black ZTE modem. Bsnl started giving a new Prithvi UE100 modem.
    I am using Prepaid connection I paid 1199 for the device + 750 for the UL plan + 20 for Sim ( called UIM for CDMA network ) validity 6 months.
    Try to ask them for a demo with the new prithvi modem.

    on router, outdoors i too get 4bars -74/79 dbm

    where r u from bro.... if kol, which area?

    instead of bar, can u tell me the dbm value? thus i can gather some solid info & complain to higher levels

    do u get consistent 150-200 always? even on weekends? cause even when i was on bsnl 3g, speed would drop to 20-25 on sat/sunday

    theres no nodal officer in bsnl... @least not here... i send all my bsnl related complains to GM level ppl... & it really works... they call up & send technicians home... believe it or not, when i started using BSNL 3G (actual 3G, not cdma) 3-4yrs ago, i wasnt getting any tower almost... they checked & within 2months setup a tower 300 mtr away... infact they offered me to host their tower @our roof... but i dont wanna get fried in microwave
