Can you help selecting a new broadband connect in NCR and to be specific in Noida.
Main usage will be at night, so speed at night should be atleast 1MB/s or 512KB/s. Can do if its limited at day but should be unlimited at night.
Is there any other perhaps any new ISP other than BSNL for such a plan?

My plan is 900 uld..4mbps till 8gb and 512kpks beyond...
Yup mostly i get a speed of around 480-520 kbps when below 8gb..later it hovers around 50-55kbps..(speeds when downloading on torrent)
Hmm..i got the handset and modem within 3 days and the internet guy came on 4th day...so 4 days in total...the only thing is make syre that your line doesnt have much noise..coz there lines are sometimes noisy..and sometimes the server is down..probability around tonce a month normally...

Also, if I opt for 500 Home plan. What will be the total bill/charges for first month with 0 calls?
500 install, 500 plan, 200 modem?? Any advance for 2nd month too??

They take installatin charges (500 bucks i guess) + Modem charges (200 If u buy, else 75 or so every month) + One month's rental. Thats all...
As far as the total amount of bill is concerned it should be around 580-620...as the service charges have increased from 10 to 12%...

For BSNL BB

they ask if intallation is required, if I select NO, they'll not charge 500 right? Also, what exactly does installation mean? Can I do it myself, maybe help from here?
Should I buy or rent the modem, if buy then what type? I cannot decide on this. Will use BB for atleast 2 months.

Installation involves the setting up of internet connection on your pc.
If u select NO, most likely u'll have to configure your modem urself...You could do that, but for that you'll need the username and password of the broadband.

If you rent a modem the advantage is, if anything happens to ur modem, bsnl will repair / exchange it. But if you buy it, they wont help u out. I have bought the modem. I feel the highest extent of the problem that would arise would be resetting the modem, which is no rocket science !

ok.
So the Rs 500 that they charge is for this configuration or for laying down the wires in/around the applicant's house.
