Well....The above rates are for DIAS and not for dataone. The second thing is although plan III seems to be interesting they didnt mention the speeds at which connection will be provided. I guess it will be 56kbps and not more than that since this is a dial up connection ...and paying 3000 for such speeds is really waste of money

The speed of DIAS is 128 kbps maximum. 64 kbps for data and 64 kbps for voice. When you make a call or receive a call your Data transfer speed will be 64 kbps. Other time (ie. when there is no voice transfer) you will get 128 kbps speed for internet. When you use the Internet, your phone line will not be busy, ie. simultaneously you can send Voice and Data.The technology is DSL. The Dataone technology is ADSL, that means in DIAS upload and download frequency is same. Whereas in Dataone upload and download frequency is different. So in DIAS upload will affect download and vice versa. In case of Dataone upload is in dependent of download.DIAS facility will be provided in your existing telephone line.

DIAS is NOT Braodband. TRAI has stated clearly that anything below 256 kbps cannot be advertised as Braodband. Here in case of DIAS the maximum speed you get is 128 kbps.

That's what I could have said if I could access the forum for the last 3 days!But DIAS service is not upto the mark. Our school has two DIAS connections which are almost non functional. The DSL link does not remain steady for most of the time inspite of the distance being about 300m from the exchange!
