I have MTNL ADSL at home in bombay now.....the speed is really good and constant...but the download limit is screwing up everything its way to less for my usage... and now I use a Voip phone on it too since the speed is so good..that eats up alot more mbs... but i have just become a suker for 256kbs speed now i cant do less than that....I had reliance powersurfer before and the speed sucked tho it was unlimted which is good...... but pls let know if you find an unlimited download service provider in bandra that gives dedicated bandwidth of 256kbs and charges too pls ..thnx alot

Hi dadude,

Dunno if I can help (am located in Noida ). But do post your min bandwidth requirement and max cash outflow pm - that way we can compare things and see if we too have a decent deal or not.

At home, I am on TATA ADSL - 512kbps: limit of 500MB pm - cost is 469 pm incl tax. Serves the purpose.

At the office, I have a Airtel BB - 256 kbps: 1 GB limit - cost is 500+99 as modem rental+taxes.

Cheers

I guess cablenet should suffice.

I use Sify BB at home:

128Kbps - Unlimited - 595pm

I get around 20kbps download speed.

The catch is if you dwnld more than 150 MB in a day, ur subscription is shortened by 1 day! I land up using it for 20 days or so.

Connection is pretty relaible @ 95% uptime in Kharghar.

This is good deal too......can u find out if they have connections available in Bandra (bandstand) for the same speed and rate? I wouldnt mind paying a little more and gettin 256kbps dedicated. 150mb a day is more than enuf my home needs.

@revtech - That Airtel deal looks too good to be true.... let me know wat feedback you get from them whenever you contact them. Thnx.
