yes

500 Mb limit (between 8 am and midnight). thats data transfer limit for a month. Exceed that n yr charged Rs 1.20 per mb.

The unlimited part is only between midnight - 8am

Quite ok for 590 bucks (+90 for modem)

I managed to get iGate 256kbps connection for Rs. 1000pm. It is unlimited and so far has worked pretty well. I stay at Malabar Hill.

Hey naru I am using Mtnl Triband DSL Night Unlimited.

But I think the guys at Mtnl have not done their work properly the downloaded I counted even at night.When I came to know bout I contacted the Mtnl's DGM Officer and he told that the problem will be rectified soon.

Also at night you won't get significant speed boosts.The download rate never goes above 28 KBps at night.

So far I've downloaded 15 gb in a month.

Is there some sort of a data transfer meter? How do u check??

My download speed hardly ever goes beyond 27 kBps. And McAfee's speedometer says connection hovers around 180 kbps at best. :( When I asked the MTNL guy, he said its cause I live on 4th floor and the long telephone wire result in data loss. Is that the reason??

@ naru: he is right to a certain degree.
yes the distance of the wires does matter.
Someone getting a connection of a broadband
and situated within 100 mts, will definitely
get speeds much more than the given speeds.(but i dont know bout mtnl )

i got a cable modem and i get speeds of 50-60 kBps in late nights!
but my friend whoose house is adjacent to the cable providers place gets a whoooooping speed of 500kBps and that too almost through out the day!

well i think this is the best scheme ... considering i stay in Mumbai and Mumbai Central where (Sify, Tata Indicom) dont have coverage ...


Scheme Details:

Scheme Name: OL24
Rate: Rs. 551/month (if paid for 6 months together)
Speed: Shared Modem of 512kbps among 10 users (but i generally get around 10-15 kbps) ... but then again .. i use FlashGet, LimeWire and Bittorrent and ABC Bittorrent ... so speed is accelerated for me to around 30 kbps (as shown by the DU Meter I use)
Download: Unlimited

and well no other scheme could match my requirements as My DU Meter shows my monthly downloads to be between 3-4 GB/month. ....
