Well. 126gb a month on a hotspot is amazing. How come it's just 640 a month? Which provider do you have and how does it work so cheap?

I'm on BSNL 3G. Rs 251 gives me 2GB Data pack that can be used during the day and Rs389 for night unlimited (when I do most of my downloads)

I think it is too high. Once I surrendered the connection but lack of option, I had to again take a new connection of Airtel Broadband.

On top it, they say they can't provide more than 2mbps in my area (proper Gurgaon).
Now Airtel has increased the price to Rs. 1549 + tax for above plan.

GTPL is a pretty established cable service provider in gujarat. Though I don't use either of their services but friends and family members all say its a 'no nonsense' kinda service provider with decent service backup. But whether they are equally good in your city needs to be investigated.

I use Beam Cable 15 mbps download speed, 2 mbps upload speed with a monthly FUP of 50 GB at full speed and post 50 GB it scales down to 2 mbps speed. I took a yearly plan for around 11k.

I am using You Broadband, with 40gb download for Rs.2000 @ 12 MBPS, lasts me 45-60 days on average. Service is good. And also regular SMS alerts for downtime and expected up-time.

Wow! Folks around here seem to have excellent broadband speeds!

I'm still stuck on the age old 2Mbps from CrapTel with a 175GB FUP ceiling for 2.2k a month. Asked them 2 weeks ago to increase my speed to 4Mbps and change my plan, but nothing has happened till now. On top of it, they are going to increase the plan charges from this month!

Has anyone experienced ACT broadband in Chennai? Are they any good? The plans look pretty cheap with a much higher promised speed than anything CrapTel is providing. Only thing going for CrapTel at this point is their up times. Pretty consistent, no downtimes in recent months, and whatever speed they promise, they give.

I get this speed only when my device (PC or Laptop) is directly connected over Ethernet. Wifi gives around 10-20 Mbps.
