NIC is CDMA based old technology which offerred 144 kbps maximum speed(really you got 90-to 120 kbps if you are nearest to WLL/CDMA tower.. this service is available in most of the circles (mostly in rural areas)
EVDO is enchanced CDMA services (3G) which offerred 2.4 mbps (average speed reported is 1mbps to 1.7 mbps if you are nearest tower. Even here if you are surroundrred by tall buildings, then the speed will be less..
Since it mainly intended for mobile internet you should not substitute for DATAONE services.. NIC only support CDMA 144kbps and could not upgraded to RVDO services.. but EVDO card can support CDMA networks.. so you can get both EVDO and CDMA signals and get continuuous internet connection while on mobile.. Since EVDO is under testing , you better wait for all the CDMA toweled in yours EVDO enabled in your area..
further You may compare other services providers (Reliance and Airtel) plan and speed and availability in your area and chose what is best for u..
Good luck!

EVDO services is not available in kanchipuram.. only 144 kbps cdma 1X services available.. if you are nearest to kanchipuram microwave area then you can get the NIC card from exchange..If you are nearest or open area then atlest 90 kbps to 120 kbps get it...compare to Airtel which has a theroritical speed 287 kbps but actual reported is from 150 kbps to 180 kbps (EDGE enabled area). But you have to pay Rs 1500/-p.m for the unlimited apart from Rs 8000/- for data card..
You may compare with reliance data card.. pl. visit the following site

Wat is the Download speed of this.
Rs.250/- Scheme = 144 / 8 = 17.2 kilo bytes per second
Rs.550/- Scheme = 2.4 * 1024 / 8 = 102.4 * 3 = 307.2 kilo bytes per second

the former speed might be quite common and easy to get, but the later needs you to be sufficiently close to a tower, within around 4KM to get max speed.
