Hello everyone!
I'm looking for a new internet connection.
Area: Kolkata (Specifically speaking, Greenpark area in Lake Town, Kolkata)
Requirement:
1. Unlimited plan
2. 24x7 internet connectivity
3. decent speed for browsing and downloading especially during daytime
4. reliable connection
5. No need for night unlimited or peering. I need this connection more during the daytime.
Budget: WIthin 750 (the lesser, the better)
I did some searching and here are the plans I have narrowed down to.
1. BSNL EVDO
2. BSNL Broadband Home Unlimited 525
3. Reliance Thunder 549
4. Reliance Thunder 699
5. BSNL Broadband Combo Unlimited 800
6. Alliance PRIME Plan
Have anyone used these connections? What is your say in these? If you had been me, which plan would you have gone for?
Here are the advantages and disadvantages of the plans:

1. BSNL EVDO
Advantage: portable, 100% unlimited
DIsadvantage: Terrible customer support,
Not sure about: inconsistent signal (not sure how good the signal strength is in our area)
2. BSNL Broadband Home Unlimited 525
Advantage: unlimited literally, BSNL at least guarantees no extra bill
DIsadvantage: Terrible customer support, fall in speed to 256 kbps after
Not sure: Am I bound to take the landline connection? I don't want the landline.Also BSNL Broadband Home Combo Unlimited 650, looks to be the same without the extra landline cost. Once again, I do not need the landline connection.
3. Reliance Thunder 549:
Advantage: Constant 1mbps connection
Disadvantage: The weird contention ratio thing, bad reviews, need to buy a different modem.
Not sure: The service of Reliance broadband in Kolkata, have any of you used it here? Are they really unlimited? Have anyone been billed extra?
4. Reliance Thunder 699:
Advantage: Constant 2mbps connection
Disadvantage: The weird contention ratio thing, bad reviews
Not sure: The service of Reliance broadband in Kolkata, have any of you used it here? Are they really unlimited? Have anyone been billed extra?
5. BSNL Broadband Combo Unlimited 800:
Advantage: BSNL at least guarantees no extra bill
DIsadvantage: Terrible customer support, Relatively expensive
Not sure: Am I bound to take the landline connection? I don't want the landline.
6. Alliance PRIME Plan:
Advantage: Constant 500 kbps speed (or so they promise)Disadvantage: One of my friends using this ISP reported having repeatedly virus affected and e-mail hacked when using this ISP, strangely the problems vanished when he changed the ISP to BSNL.
Not sure: I am not sure about anyone else having the problems with Alliance.
