    Hi guys,
    Just a few days ago i saw that Airtel Mobile Office costs rs.600 per month and gives unlimited data usage. But now airtel has changed the plans!!.I live in Chennai.

    Take a look for urself: http://www.airtelworld.com/spservices_gprsmo.jsp

    in pune ,,150 pm.......unlimited ul /dl..good connectivity..stable connection up to 3-4 hrs...sometime u will face frequent disconnections
    and u will get speed 25-35 kbps....

    i dont think there willl separate prices for gprs and edge its same thing..BECOZ,,,,EDGE (also known as EGPRS)

    i used airtel gprs...nokia 6021..edge enabled cell phone.,,,for 6 months. and lot of time i DLded ...200-300 mb autopatches .games..with the help of d managers

    Shift to BSNL. As far as Chennai is concerned, BSNL's EDGE networks are far better than Airtel's. I'm using Airtel prepaid in which it is Rs.375pm for MO. Dad is using BSNL's unlimited internet for just Rs.199pm. He is getting speeds 5 times faster than mine. I am also going to change from the following month. After all, why pay 175pm extra for slower speeds.

    I use the CellOne connection only during the nights because that's when dad's phone is at home. I get around 70-100 kbps in the nights. Dad says during the day also the speed is good. But I can't confirm how good.
