    I have been staying in Bangalore's HSR layout since the last 6 years. I was staying in Sector-2 for two years where I was using Tata Indicom Broadband. Then I moved to an apartment where we had airtel broadband, for two years. Now I have moved to a sector-3, near the HSR Club in HSR Layout and my hunt for a new broadband connection has been an utter tragedy.I first went to airtel, who, within 3 days, told me that there is no feasibility for connection in the area. I then, with a lot of hopes, went to the telephone exchange where I was told that there is no feasibility for connection in the HSR Layout area as BBMP has not allowed BSNL to dig up the area for laying new cables. Next I went to Tata Indicom, who took 10 days to tell me that there is no technical feasibility in the area to provide a new connection.I am left completely baffled at this. I am staying in a prime location in HSR Layout only to find that there is no way I can get broadband?I am left with very few options now. For now, I am using an USB dongle (Reliance Netconnect). There are advertisement bills stick on electric poles for Tikona Broadband and TTN broadband. I have googled about Tikona and TTN and my perception is that they are a waste of money and time. The only option left is to go for the latest and overpriced Airtel LTE 4G broadband. Equipment for it alone costs Rs.8000 and I am not in a mood to spend that much amount (Airtel representative who sells LTE told me that it's the stuff for people who own Audi and Benz).Can someone here please suggest me something? I use moderate downloading (Maybe 10-12 GB per month?) and I have always had broadband. i don't know what to do as i am going to stay in this new house for at least a year. Please advice!

    Yes but that would have to be the dongle right? As i said, I have always used the broadband with the wi-fi. I am not sure if the dongle is seen as a complete replacement for the broadband.

    Give bsnl evdo a try. 750 bucks for the unlimited plan. Ask for a demo at your place.

    Definitely you did a good job of googling about Tikona Services. I am struggling hard to get the services terminated.

    Apply at the telephone exchange or at udaan.bsnl.co.in . They should give you a demo if you ask for one. Average speeds are around 2 mbps with evdo. But speeds vary from place to place.

    If you have a phone which supports tethering(turning your phone into wifi modem), you can still go with airtel or aircel 3G. This way you won't miss your wifi :)
