    Default BSNL EVDO in Kolkata (Purbaloke area)

    Hello,

    I am from Purbalok area near Metro Cash & Carry in Kolkata. I wanted an BSNL EVDO connection since my BSNL wired internet gets frequently disconnected due to the digging of roads by the KMC. (Currently my wired internet is disconnected for about two weeks)

    Fed up with all this, I decided to go wirefree and BSNL EVDO 750 plan seems to be the best.

    I contacted local Jadavpur Tel. Exch. and they replied that the signal strength in our area will be poor.

    However, the nearest EVDO tower is at a distance of about 2.1 km from my place. Moreover some users in this forum reported they got moderate speeds in this area. So should I go for the plan ?

    Also suppose that I do not get expected speeds will I be able to return the device, and how much will they refund back ?

    (Meanwhile applied online for a demo, no replies so far, except an SMS informing someone named Tapan Das will be contacting me)

    If they are giving you a demo at your place then nothing like that but if not then you could ask people living in the area to find out who among them uses BSNL evdo and request them to let you check the performance at your place. If for some reason you dont get good signal strength then MTS could be another option for you. MTS is giving 40GB for Rs999 per month on post paid and it is unlimited. Once you use up 40GB your speed will come down thats all, so there wont be a chance of getting billed for extra usage. Have a look at this thread to find out more about this MTS data card plan.

    Ok. Let's see if they give a demo, however with govt. companies like BSNL this seems a far fetched idea.

    There is a better chance of someone around you letting you check it then BSNL giving you a demo.
