Hi I want to know whther I should shift 2 broadband. Since BSNL has slashed prices to Rs.250/- per month I am tempted to try it. But since it offers only about 400 MB/month I don't know whether to go that way.
Normally, out of my telephone bill, about Rs. 700/- is for the dial-up internet (for two months). But if speed increases then my data download is bound 2 increase. If I continue downloading videos and stuff my 400 MB will be reduced in no time. Plz offer your suggestions. I am student and so don't need much more speed that the home introductory offer of BSNL..

as if u r a student & not a bandwidth hungry monster :wink:... then how bout taking the unlimited dialup access plane which will cost around 399 or 499 (depending on ur location) Per Month....

in this plane u will b given second B Phone line (Land Line with separate number) free... in which only 172xxx number outgoing call r allowed... there will b no charge for dial-up internet access through that Second B Phone line... & as its a defferent line so ur main line wont stay busy which u surf...

but u have to pay or ISP separately... here u can buy a VSNL or Sify or other package where u can get night hours free & holyday for free (i am cut of with Dial-up so cant give u exact ISP price list)... like TATA formaly VSNL

Check here for that second B phone what i was talking about...

Hi siddhartha ,

The speeds offered in dialp up is 33.3 kbps (as of the BSNL diaulp)

and the broadband 256kbps

Since you pay Rs. 700 once in two month and you want to download a lot of stuffs

i would rather suggest you to leave these both and go for Airtel GPRS which offers 5 KB/s and costs Rs. 240 / month

this will be done by connecting mobile to the computer

i am giving you what you need

1) a mobile phone capable of GPRS
if u dont have one you can get one @ Rs.3800 i.e samsung c200

2) a GPRS service provider
i would suggest to go for Airtel which provides 5 KB/s

3) the cost will be Rs. 99 cut from your sim balance
(mobile balance) which in real will cost you around Rs.240

4)Airtel GPRS offers unlimited internet @ 5KB/s @ 240/month

so this will be more good for you


OR else go for da broadband and pay for what you download


Thanks

Dear Friends,
In mumbai, Airtel Gprs is the best choice bcoz it costs only Rs.240/-. But in Karnataka Airtel charges Rs.650/- for same GPRS. So its costly here in Karnataka. I had used Airtel GPRS for 6 months. But download speed is not same at all times. Sometimes it drops down to 1kb/s. So now Iam using Reliance RConnect Freedom Plan. It costs me 650PM with 1GB bandwidth. Download speed is very good(115Kb/s) and it never drops down below 80kbps. The only bad thing is the Bandwidth Limit. I can use 30MB per day to adjust it till the end of month. :(

No pain....No gain
Contact ur local cable operator and check the price as u would net use for occassional browsing and downloads. With them download or upload limit is not a problem(unlimited). I don't know about the speed as I haven't used one. By the way I use Dataone plan 500.

I mean I am too busy in studies and log on to the net for once or twice a week. But my internet sessions are long. COmprising of downloading games, musc, videos, studying my education concepts through various websites, etc. etc.
After a student of XII doesn't have free time. So, isn't it fair that BSNL should offer more bandwidth at Rs. 250/- per month???
It is just a matter of 6 month. after that I have to leave my house since I will have 2 leave for the college hostels wherever I go in India!!

Home 500 seems to be a nice option. One can save the download links in one's D/L manager and schedule it to begin at 2am. Similarly u can schedule ur PC to shut down before 8 am.

Having done this, all u need to do is to cram ur D/L manager with loads of links and leave it on at night.

There are some utils like GigAlarm which can do a specified task at the given time. One can program it to launch ur P2P client during free hours. It will D/L all the links you have fed into it in the day time.

This way you end up downloading so much more . . . . . . while sleeping. And it doesn't count in the bill :D :D
