I use YouTele (Formerly Iqara). I pay 500 + taxes for 2 MBPS connection and 2.5 GB limit. The connection speeds are ok but the customer support is something to be desired.

This week i am shifting to Reliance broadband. They have a server installed in my building. It is Rs.349 for 2 MBPS with 1 GB limit. I usually don't download. I never crossed 1 GB in my You Tele connection.

I used to pay approx 1300 bucks for Tata Indicom Broadband connection. It was the unlimited 256kbs package. Though I must admit that their service was downright pathetic. Connection was lost for almost 6hrs a day. And the very fact that my comp is always downloading something 24x7 I had to look for an alternative.

Airtel didn't provide service in my area and BSNL didn't have any ports free. Since my mom works in BSNL, got myself a Unlimited 256kbps plan in two days flat just yesterday . Pay 900 bucks a month and it sure is reliable and fast.

Get Airtel business plan. Office is not eligible for home plan. Also business plans have better QoS commitment
For around 3000 a month you get something like 20-30 GB limit(forgot exact level) and 2Mbps.
One like will be enough.
Airtel is very reliable, atleast in Delhi and Bangalore.

I pay Rs. 576 per month for my broadband connection. That too from this month. Earlier it was only Rs.561 per month. For this amount I get a Sify Unlimited Night and Weekend Plan. What it means is that my Net connection comes on at 10pm every night at 10pm and remains on till 8am in the morning. No metering. I keep some download or the other on through the night and go to sleep. Mostly they do not turn it off till late in the day. So I switch off my comp (and connection) while leaving for office everyday. Besides this on weekends (Saturdays and Sundays) its on through out the day but I get 150 mbs limit for the 8am to 10pm time slot. Its perfectly ok for me as I do not put anything on download at these hours.

Rs576 is a good price to pay for this connection (@256kbps), what say people?

Well Zappo i had the same plan an year back. That time it was 600 for 128 kbps. The problem with Sify is -
1. Frequent disconnections. Come rain and gone the connection.
2. A lot depends on the local cable operator.
3. Absolutely dumb customer care.
4. Quality of service pathetic.

I shifted to Airtel 256 kbps now. Its totally unlimited. And at night it gives doube speed (512kbps). All for 1k.

Pay Rs. 900 for home BSNL UL. and for office its Rs. 1800 2MBPS.

Overall its ok but after using office net for almost whole day it feels like i should get 2MB plan for home tooo...

But still home plan serves the purpose well enough.

And my downloads are like around 50 GB but from past 2 months its more like 20 GB for 2 months (BSNL was down for almost a month)
