    Well we all use ISP :!: ,

    Its time to sum up all the ISP & pick the best of all,
    So share ur ISP benifits that it offers

    :arrow: Eg:
    -->Charges
    -->Speed
    -->Accesibility & so on

    Friends

    You forgot to mention the type Dial-UP or Broadband & wat U pay (Area if possible).


    I am stuck with dialup & connect via MTNL Mumbai. Not to forget the tel charges, I think it comes to some 24/Hr

    Hey people why don't you mentioning your connection type i.e. Dial-up or DSL? Also the money and the BW.
    I use Sanchernet. It's a dial-up@64 Kbps. Costs Rs. 10 in off-peak hour and Rs. 18 in peak hour.
    I used VSNL and Infinet. VSNL is better than Infinet and Sanchernet is better than VSNL (My opinion). :D

    Well, my rating are based on dial up what I have used and heard:

    VSNL (Tata Indicom) is the best, but expensive for longer usages
    MTNL is comparable, and relatively cheap especially for unlimited use
    Sify and Mantra are strictly ok
    ETH sucks
    Have not tried BSES or RoltaNet, which are also available.

    i use Pacnet broadband connextion !

    speed - 64kbps
    download rates - normally 8-10k in the day and upto 12 - 14ks at night.
    download limit - none. (no capping too.)
    a bit expensive.
    I find it very satisfactory ! :)

    This is for Rocky:

    If u r talking of a download speed of 20-25 Kilo Bytes Per second then yes, you do have n exceptional download speed... But then u shud be able to download 1 GB in a day and not in 3-4 days... If you are doing it in 3-4 days, u r speed is 4 kilo bytes per second. This is not exceptional, and I do get it with my unlimited MTNL dial up. So what's the big deal?

    I have now got myself SIFY Broadband, New Mumbai.

    Its quit fast the connection speed all scored 200~kbps.
    I downloaded SP2 275MB from micosoft server & took 30Min max

    I don't know how long this will continue,for now I am using a unlimited package, was suposse to be slow but its great specially when u take leep from dialup.
