    Hi all Techies,

    As you can see under my Avatar, I am from Chennai and I am looking for a broadband option.

    I am living nearby Tirumangalam( near Annanagar ). Is there any broadband service in this area.

    How about the Cable Internet services and DSL services.

    Can anybody from Chennai suggest a good Cable internet service or DSL service ??

    I can spend upto Rs. 1,000/- a month. Also I am a heavy internet user.

    Please post your informations,

    Thanks in Advance.

    I guess Rs.1000 permonth is very meagre for a heavy internet user.
    However u can try DIAS from BSNL which is affordable and performs pretty decently. (I guess it is a standard 128 Kbps fixed line. Always on)

    I'm from Chennai as well. I live near Porur, and I think Sify offers some broadband services here. But I guess it wld be a lil too costly. Last month I used up around 40hrs and the phone bill was 2082 bucks!!! That amounted to a net spending of around 1200 on my Net connection. Is there a broadband alternative that would cost me cheaper? Will the diff be significant?

    wow! 128Mbps :shock: Touchtel is a good option so it Tata Indicom.
    I guess its a typo... :p

    btw I remain online for abt 16-18hrs everyday,it costs only 500 per month..
    I am using BSNL's second line for Internet.But I don't think you will prefer that coz u need to download video files. :roll:
    But still I downloaded a full 700 MB movie.It took me just 4 days. :D :p
