    Default Planning to get a new broadband connection

    I shall choose either BSNL or Reliance wired broadband.

    Is 'FREEDOM 999' - 12Mbps up to 25 GB and then onwards 1Mbps unlimited - plan by Reliance worth subscribing to?

    Do they really give this speed ?

    I am asking this because there is one more plan by Reliance :
    Trump 1299
    Advance Monthly Rental
    Bandwidth
    4 Mbps upto 30 GB, thereafter 600 Kbps Unlimited

    ( Being a new user, I can't post links ) On the Reliance RCOM website --> Internet --> Wired Broadband and then Tarrifs page, the Contention Ratio for Home Users is mentioned as being 1:8 maximum.

    Is that as well true ? BSNL's contention ratio, I guess, is 1:30 or 1:50 for common broadband home users.

    One can see that the FREEDOM 999 plan ''seems'' to be much better with a speed of 12Mbps ( 3 times the speed of the 1299 trump plan ) for data of 25GB and then 1Mbps unlimited ( 1.5 times speed of 1299 plan ).

    Why is it that the less speedy plan is priced higher by Reliance ?

    For users not familiar with networks etc, BSNL Landline based connection is
    preferred ( with a modem wireless router etc )
    Reliance Wired Broadband : ( optic fiber cable )you may just get a cable ( rj45)
    and will have difficultyusing your laptop in Wifi mode, and or in your cellphone.

    Avoid paying annual BB tariff plan charges.
    Why is it that the less speedy plan is priced higher by Reliance ?
    may be difference in FREE telephone calls allowed.
    Freedom999 seems suitable. for a heavy downloader. ( Movies/music etc)
    Ideal conditions:
    12Mbps 1500KB/sec 90MB/min 5.4GB in one hour. You will exhaust quota of 25GB in say 5 Hours.
    Thereafter 1 Mbps 128KB/sec 7.2MB/min 400 MB/hour. ( approximated )
    12hours d/l /per day 4.8 GB x30 days= approx 150GB .

    First of all, please inquire whether reliance is offering this plan in your area. Only a select few subscribers get this plan from Reliance and you need to have metro ethernet network in your area to get this plan. Although 12Mbps is possible through conventional telephone lines, Reliance still prefers to give out only to those who are located in the vicinity of the metro ethernet network.

    Actually, I needed some quick advice. I posted the 1st thread in a forum which usually has less viewers in real time ( of which I learnt later ). So, I re-posted it under Reliance Broadband. I understand.
