First of all I would like to say hello to all the members as its been a long time since I posted anything.
Here is some good news for all of you who are having a hard time choosing an isp to go with so I came up with this wicked idea to get a connection each from every isp in my area here at my parents house in New Delhi and the first one I am going to check out is Reliance broadband.
For all those who are looking for reviews about Reliance broadband This is THE thread to watch..
I called up reliance broadband at this number 022-3033 7777 as this was the only number mentioned for broadband services on thier website.
I made this call at 21:00 IST on the 27th of JAN and here is the rest of the story...
Took about 40 seconds to get through to this girl who sounded very polite and had a very good customer focused attitude although I could spot that she was new at this job.
I said to her that I would like to see if reliance provides thier broadband services in my area and she replied there are two types of services one wireless and the other is provided using cables and I said if she could let me know about both of them and she promptly replied that she only deals with the cable thinggy and I will have to call up another number if I want the wireless option so she started with asking my postal code and found that only prepaid services are available which is fair enough.
She gave me a brief idea of all the prepaid packages they have one by one and I picked up the 300kbps connection which she said will cost me Rs40 a day which isint bad.
There is a Rs500 installation charge as well she said and I agreed to take this package so she took down my address and name and all that stuff and said thier rep will visit my place within 72 hours time(which ends at 21:00 30th of Jan) and when enquired about how long would it take for me to get connected she said it will all be done within 7 days time (scary **** isint it?) and I asked the same question again and the answer was again exactly the same 7 DAYS.
So guys a bit of waiting time to see if Reliance guys keep up to thier 72 hours promise and will see how it goes after that and how long they actually take to pull a cable into my house.
This is not the only isp I am going to try,I am going to get a connection from each and every isp available in my area and also write about isp's which are not available and what they said about comming to my area.
This first hand isp review will go on for a complete 6 months for each isp and if you are a blogger please be kind and link to this thread from your blog so every one can know whats going on
