I was using Vodafone as my GPRS/PC Connect for backup but last week i bought new RIM Prepaid GSM and activated RS99 pack which gives 2.5 GB data for 30 days,i'm using my Nokia 6630 Edge enabled phone via data cable and here are the results
connecting via nokia one touch access
speed on public torrent touches 140kbps easily with port forwarding
Direct HTTP DL SPEED
speedtest.net test (tested it in peak hour to see real colors)
though ping is high but for checking mails, using Facebook&Orkut is just a breeze!
latency is bit high but its not worse either and there is no packet loss in connection whatsoever!!
at just Rs 3 a day i can use 83 MB on my Notebook what more you expect from a EDGE connection? Reliance GPRS on EDGE enabled phone simply rocks.
bottom line i've dumped Vodafone GPRS!!
