Thinking of getting this connection, can anyone using let me know if I get 899 plan what will be installation charges, modem charges etc ? We plan to use cordless..also already have act broadband so don't really need a broadband connection..
Andnd are calls truly unlimited ? Currently on mtnl and it's not worth it..tx

there is definitely a fup on calls. i cannot find the thread with details. but there is a limit on total minutes. there are also some requirements that you have to get incoming calls. and you cannot call more than x number of numbers per week/month. basically designed to prevent usage as a telephone booth.

Not sure anymore about the Installation charges. There might be a Rs 500 charge on VDSL modem though which will be charged at Rs 100/month in the following 5 bills.

would more or less depend upon the competition/demand in your area. you could get completely free install. or you could end up paying only for the router. bargain bargain bargain.

@Sushubh I am not clear with the calls limitations. Can you explain a bit?

from the looks of it... they might withdraw offer if you call 300+ unique numbers. and get less than 15 minutes of incoming calls to your landline.

Strange. My friend has the basic 699 plan(Mumbai), he has Gigaset cordless which works fine.
