    Default Need Information

    Hi Folks,

    A great forum, I have benefitted a lot from this initiative. I am in a fix to choose ISP. I stay at Dahisar West, need an internet connection, although not necessary that I get a broadband connection. I am looking for unlimited internet facility , so that there are no hassles for extra usage. I have fixeda budget for Rs.500-550 pm . Which is the best facility according to you?

    Broadband is ubiquitous now a days.. in a dial up connection it will take an hour to download a picture(photo)..

    I stay at Dahisar West
    Update 0625PM time spent about 30 minutes.

    MTNL BB could be available. ( may be rural)

    10 Dahisar (RLU) 28960405 28950897 Dahisar Tele. Exch. Bldg., Dahisar Check Naka, Dahisar (E), Mumbai 400068.

    MTNL Customer Care

    ==================================


    You could have added the town/city in your profile,
    as requested by @moderator.
    Now in Chennai, I don't know : where you are.
    How to suggest BSNL/aIRTEL/Tataindicom/SIFY
    OR rural Broadband service of BSNL. ( at reduced tariff charges with modem free !)

    If BSNL BB is available in your area Home 750 at 256Kbps
    speed will be OK.
    Please see the links given above for further details.

    Location:
    From Google Search: Dahisar West, i know you are in Bhilwandi area. Probably MTNL is not available in your area.
    Check whether your Telephone Exchange is RURAL.

    Hey

    Thanx a lot for replies. I stay in Mumbai, now that you know, but unfortunately, I can't take BSNL. I have to take MTNL. I was thinking of having an unlimited connection for around 500-550. However, MTNL rates are high, around 1000 bucks+ taxes. Airtel, wen i inquired, doesn't have a connection in our area. So, i am left with two options, either TATA or Reliance.. If i m very much optimistic, than i can think for Cable net.


    Any idea about Reliance post paid internet service, where the charge is 400 rs. for unlimited surfing and download . The download speed offered is 75 Kbps

    Garuda is based on the CDMA platform with land-line numbering pattern.
    Garuda internet is CDMA 1x wireless service (similar to reliance/TATA indicom). Maximum possible speed is 144 kbps. But average speed would be much lower
    Does not support roaming.

    Had a few doubts for Garuda…

    1)They said its one of the cheapest unlimited Internet service provider in India. However, they say apart from 299 as monthly charges, one has to pay for the phone too.. Now, I have doubt that whether I have to pay monthly charges for that too. In MTNL website, they say that 150 Rs is charged as phone rent, but I am taking garuda for internet only… The call centre at Garuda said that it will be charged, while at the telephone exchange, it is said it will not be charged.. They don’t know themselves….

    2)I have read mixed reviews of Garuda internet, both on the website and the forum.. However, I want to know that if MTNL has made some improvements in the service and whether the speed comes to between 100-144kbps…
