    I got a usb modem last week got the 5gb plan it is Rs1000 something. Gives good speed in Delhi and Mumbai.. yet to try it else where.

    5GB is actually a lot of data transfer if its just for work and in my opinion its the best mobile broadband connection available in India right now It would be great if Reliance could cover atleast the national highways and provide mobile broadband for those who travel by road.

    Welcome back Admin Ji. Hope your deals went through nicely.

    Yes, for the present Reliance is the best mobile broadband option. And the level of response they are getting would sure tempt them to expand the service as fast as possible.

    As already indicated in post #2 Full Roaming at no extra charge (except plan 6). Card changes to CDMA 1x mode (144 kbps) in cities not covered under EVDO.

    So do I. but BSNL uses the Tarang WLL (landline) infrastructure for their EVDO cards. So roaming is not possible till they shift to full mobility mobile CDMA.

    Looks great.

    So far I have been using wired Broadband by BSNL for my desktop. Soon I am going to buy a laptop and planing to have either Reliance or BSNL EVDO.
    But there are few things I need to know, I would be glad if anyone clears them.

    1. I am a heavy downloader. On Reliance's site, it says "Nil" for Night usage for plans like Broadband+ 5 GB or Broadband+ 3 GB which I would love to have. But I want to know, is this 10 GB limit applicable for Night usage too? Or is it like BSNL's Home 500 - 2.5 GB Day, Night Unlimited? It would be great if it is so!

    2. Most important : Would I be able to use either of 'em (even with some tweaking) on a Linux distribution?

    3. Sorry for asking a lil' irrelevant to this thread, but what is the exact difference between BSNL 3G and BSNL EVDO?

    Yes FUP is there.
