    I've been thinking of getting a broadband connection. I would use it for downloading larege game demos and stuff like that. I can keep my computer on for 19hrs a day and 29 days a month and keep downloading througout. Which is best broadband for this purpose. Cost should not exceed Rs.1000 per month.

    If you want to download all day, i.e. unlimited bandwidth, approach your local cable guy. Only local cable businesses are offering unlimited bandwidth and are under Rs. 1000.

    As far as I know most "big" ISPs have limited accounts at under 1000 rupees and supply measly amount of bandwidth along with them.

    hathway gives u unlimited 24 hrs scheme ' OL24' which is costing bout 750 rs per month and 500 rs per month if u pay 6 months charges at a time. speed is not very good but if u can keep ur pc on for 19 hrs a day i think its worth it.

    mariner, could you please tell me more about where you got the info 'cause it sounds interesting. I visited hathway's site and looked at the packages offered (here). All unlimited plans are upwards of 5000 rupees P.M.

    Maybe I should ask my cable guy. I don't have cable TV coz i am always with my laptop. I wonder who's providing cable near lamington road. I stay nearby in bhullabhai desai road. If anyone knows please inform me.

    depends on your building. ask your building secretary or someone what cable operator you ahve. it's probably incablenet or hathway.

    sify's good but costly..
    pacenet is a good option

    however my best bet is on the local cable-wallh
    its less price.. but compromises on speed but its a good deal

    well all depends on how much free time u have! if u r like me doing C.A ( COMPLETE AARAM) then cable is the best option cos speed hardly matters.
