Guys, i'm sick of searching for broadband services here in Andheri West, near JP road,Sahakar nagar. I have only one choice, that is, MTNL, but i can't take it, coz they told me that it will take around a month or 2. So, i've have literary called everyone... Reliance broadnet,Tata indicom,hathway... & exattnet's no. is always busy, while no one from Sify answers the phone.Wot shud i do, i'm really frustrated now !!If anyone living near my location,is using any broadband available there, then it wud be a gr8 help. I'm searching for any 256kbps plan upwards, nighut unlimited or full unlimited.....Guys, really need help...coz my dial-up sucks real bad !! :angry:

As of now, in Andheri West, confirmed services are Exatt, Pacenet(both these have their HQ in Andheri), Sify, Hathway, In2Cable, Iqara, and other lesser known ops...Airtel has just started services as well.

Buy your own ADSL modem, in that case MTNL will install connection in one week.

i just checked powersurfer's tariffs... n they r pretty expensive,espesially 256 unlimited for 2200 bucks.So, now i've decided to take a new reliance landline no. They provide internet service with that, and claims upto 144kbps speed. Plus one of there plan is also pretty cheap, 400 bucks for night unlimited plan.Its R connect i guess. But, i'm just concerned about the speed, i hope its better then dial-up.Guys, if u got any sugesstions then do reply...

surprising? their employee is only telling us not to buy their connection

actually i kinda did, i'm using Rconnect. & its giving me around 15kbps download speed on limewire.... so im kinda happy.

Plus on DU meter it generally shows more than 100kbps speed.

This thing is way better than dial-up.... so its ok.. But i hope to get a broadband soon.
