    This is a summary of what they say about temporary connections -

    Bandwidth: Above 256 Kbps

    Installation Charges: 500

    Security deposit for modem: 1000

    Modem charges: 200

    Plan charges: Double of the normal fixed monthly charges

    I don't know if they can actually provide a temporary connection in Cochin or how long they will take to have a connection up and running after you apply for it.

    I'm quite happy with the speed I get with my BSNL connection. What I'm not satisfied with is their reliability, at least in my area. Service is often down for hours or days at a time.

    BSNL will probably take a month to come and set it up itself....

    IMO, If ur going for a temporary connection then gprs (or EDGE) is the best way to go ;)

    Cochin ? You have a lot of options then.

    I guess you will be in the town limit. Airtel has EDGE now, not just GPRS and speed it not that bad.

    BSNL temp connection - Problem is you need a land phone first. As other members poineted, sometimes it may take more time.

    TATA-VSNL - Not sure whether they give it for 1 month, but contact them, I think they ask for 3 months rental in advance or so. Good service.

    Asianet - Service is good and you will get new connection fast.

    Airtel - Not much formalities I think, conn fast.

    Or you can go for the tata indicom USB modem or the reliance one.

    I am using BSNL WLL connection and I am pretty much happy with it except for playing games online as it needs heavy bandwidth! It's a 112Kbps unlimited connection and I get about 18Kbps when I download with IDM. Surfing speed is good. The monthly rent of telephone is Rs. 120 and the internet bill is Rs. 250. Therefore the bill generally comes @ Rs 370 + your outgoing calls . It is a wireless connection. You'll get a Telephone + An USB Modem(CDMA) and it's easy to set up the connection.

    But sometimes due to lack of signal it fails to connect but it happens rarely. It is a boon for those who live in rural areas.
