    Default Shifting from BSNL to You Broadband, want to know Router/Modem Requirements

    Hey all. This is my first post here!

    Back to the topic, I'm going to shift from BSNL to You Broadband, and I had a couple of questions in my mind.

    BSNL provided me with Teracom T2-B-Gawv1.4u10Y-BI modem, and I've been very happy with it. You Broadband is offering higher speeds at pretty much the same cost, so, I called their customer care to inquire about the charges etc. They said that they'll also sell me a router and a modem, but I don't think I need one, since this Teracom modem also supports WiFi.

    I'm confused. Can anyone tell me if it will work with You Broadband? Any help is appreciated!

    BSNL and YOU BB use different technologies to connect you to the internet. Hence, you may have to opt for a new modem from them. If you had migrated to Airtel or Reliance BB, you can use the same modem since the underlying technologies are the same.

    that sucks. What's the best alternative, then? I don't want to buy from You BB, and would like a modem with a router in built.

    It is highly inappropriate to make suggestions regrading ISPs within India. In my area BSNL, Airtel and Reliance BB works fine.

    The quality of service varies greatly in between the cities in India. If you wish to use the same modem which BSNL gave to you, it is better to stick with Reliance or Airtel BB.

    Reliance gives FUP-free broadband connections. However, the routing quality is very shabby (unless you are on the metro-ethernet). Airtel is exemplary - but they have FUP limits that spoils the experience.
