Question Broadband Internet

Hi. I live in Prabhadevi and have Net9online broadband internet. This absolutely sucks. there is nothing broadband of it. people here dont know how to talk and the service is pathetic. u can actually count how many hours the internet is on. Do you guys have any idea which is a good internet connection which gives unlimited downloads which would be there in this area. Is anyone using this crappy Net 9 service?

Any suggestions..

thanks

Z Klasse

Hey Z Klasse,
I stay at Prabhadevi too and am using Hathway Internet. It's worked fine since I got it i.e. more than a year now. It's pretty fast and rarely trips up. If you go in for hathway, insist on a Motorola Surfboard modem, else you'll be provided with a not-so-well known type.
Cheers
Aditya

Two TBHP threads that should help you out -

How fast is your ISP ? (How Fast Is Your Internet Service Provider (ISP) connection?)

Thanks aditya but the problem with hathway is that they have limit on downloads.. I need more than 2 gb a month for downloads. I can do with 1.5 gb but hathway is damn stingent on it. Reliance was supposed to come out with a 750 rs 128 kbps 10 gb a month and 1250 rs 256kbps 10 gb a month and also a 3000 rs 512kbps 10 gb a month but they havent wired all buildings. They have wired 2 lac buildings and they are still going on further. Lets see wht happens. Mtnl is good but now they have limits on downloads.

Just checked out Hathway.com and for 1000 bucks they are offering 256kbps and 2 gb limit on downloads. that is pretty good as they do not count uploads in the traffic. I think this is really good and one word of advice, drive without oil in the car but dont subscribe to Net9Online. Sucks Sucks sucks..!!!!
