Tata indicom has incompetent rates. When all other ISPs offer 64kbps for 500-600 Tata Indicom charges 800. And i have heard that they dont give service instantly and give u a run of 20-30 days when u finally get a connection. Even airtel doesnt have the best rates but comparitively speaking airtel is better. You have to settle down for the cockroach instead of the worm.

i agree from experience. But the guys at the ground level (the wiring guys, the engineer) are very helpful.

May i know which other ISP offers 64kbps?
(No ISP)
May i also know which is the "cheapest" "UNLIMITED" internet available?

Well to start off Airtel offers 64 kbps connection @ Rs 600. Secondly Sify provides 64kbps connection for Rs 500. Regarding the download limit which is 200Mb per day, i guess that will just be enough to download continiuosly for 6 hrs considering 25Mb/ hr. And if you still want to downlaod more then there is all night for you (unlimited downloads between 10pm - 8am) so that will be enough . And more over i live in hyd where there is an ISP called Beam cable which offers 64kbps for Rs 600. So i guess the industry has stabilised with the rates (leaving TATA behind) . Two years back when i took the so called broadband service my local cable wallah provided me 64 kbps @ Rs 900. Now 2 years have passed but what i see is TATA still offering those rates. I wudnt complain much because i know that wont help. 2 years is really a long time . Many countries have made major advancements in this broadband field but we still are lagging miles away... Sigh

Any ways i live in hyd and Airtel isnt available here.

Blame it on the Indian system of democracy and politics !!

As long as the politicians are satisfied, we the normal citizens dont matter much
