I think I am the odd one out here with not much of the problem over 3 years of usage, had a wireline BB 2mbps from TATA Indicom.
- Had a total blackout for 3 week once, some equipment got burnt at their end.
- If the wires break down, they needed atleast 2 weekdays to correct it(not possible to repair if its reported on saturday till monday). IIRC, cable breakdowns were like 3-4 times in this period.
- They then converted it into a WiMax connection and the response times got better. But the Wimax had one problem, you had to switch on the UPS 10min before you could actually switch the PC on, since it takes time for the outdoor modem to connect to teh base station. Their solution, keep it "ON" for the day, I asked them to foot the electricity bill.
- Now a week back, they upgraded the firmware of the outdoor modem (pushed from the Base station) and it connects in a jiffy.
No major issues with the WiMax as such, speeds are good.
From what I have seen, the firmware is linux based but very little documentation available on the net if you want to configure "NAT" for multiple PC/ Laptop connection. Better to ask the installation guy to configure "NAT" on it at that time itself.
They use Telsima, Starmax Outdoor modems.

I am using TATA wimax.
I need to know the signal frequency of my nearest base station in Yeshwanthpur/Mattikere area, as I accidentally deleted the entries in the router configuration.
