depends on ur place :D as on paper EDGE is faster than CDMA which BSNL is offering but once again its on paper

at many places AirTel networkmay not have better EDGE support or too much DATA trafic which would give u slower speed and also EDGE / GRPS will come with one single IP for a total Network Area which means virtually u are getting a Static IP :p so problem in sites like Rapidshare.com or same :lol:

in case of BSNL its cheaper in many case will come with better upload speed and dynamic IP but it will not support roaming and initial investment is high as with AirTel :D u can use ur phone as modem but with BSNL u have to buy their DataCard

so where are u from ??

yeah in terms of speed EDGE is good for casual browsin n downloadin, but airtel's GPRS/EDGE service sucks.:mad:mad:mad:mad even on edge i hardly get a speed of 6kilobtyes/s n i m in BAGALORE :mad:

I wud suggest u go with BSNL 4 its speed n uptime... In near future u can expect bsnl rates to fall further but same cant be said abt airtel

Tata plug 2 surf - max plan is 5 GB cap - Rs.1500 + tax

BSNL - Unlimited - Rs.550


In Kerala, they have a plan Rs.125 per month for unlimited usage. Thats Rs.1500 (we have to pay that in advance) per yr.

In my opinion, you should first check the coverage and speed in your area before you go for it - whichever service it is.

And all mentioned above are for people do not have any other options like no broadband etc and for people on the move. If broadband will work for you, then surely go for it.
