I am planning to go in for broadband . There are two parts to my question please read both. Ofcourse, I did search the forums but I did not find the relevant answers.If however you do find something please link me to that. PART I I would like to know your comments, opinions, complaints against any of the following companies and their packages. They are, 1. Mtnl Triband 2. Hathway 3. Tata Indicom Broadband These are the 3 companies from which I can get myself connected. PART II These are with regards to Hathway I spoke to Hathway and they have showed me two plans which are suitable for my requirement. 255 Kbps speed 1Gb download limit Rs. 500 Validity 1 month 64 Kbps speed UNLIMITED Rs. 500 Validity 1 month What is the good part of these 2 plans apart from the speed and download limit. Does the speed difference really matter understanding that one has Limited downlod limit and the other has Unlimited download limit so each compensates for the other. They provide the connection through a cable modem. Is Hathway really good . If you have used it please tell me . Is their service , uptime good . ALSO , THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT. Can I open network neighbourhood and see the other persons computer connected and access all his files and data. He said that this connection will be done thorugh a modem and he assures me that my data will not be seen by the other person through his computer. WILL MY DATA BE SECURE. What is a static IP address . I know that it means that this IP is connected to my computer and this is my computer nos. when it connects to the internet so in that case can I do , start -> run and type //127.0.0.0/c$ Assuming that 127.0.0.0 is my static IP address . In a LAN if I do this I can see the persons C drive . Thanks for your time and patience .
