News is that BSNL has announced a few days ago they will be offering unlimited GPRS for Rs.200 + basic cellone postpaid rental.I called BSNL customer service and they said that I can use that to connect to my PC! Even though I know I will be getting very low speeds, I just want to know exactly what speed anyone would be getting through BSNL GPRS when connected to a PC.Help.

Airtel offers a negligible speed of 1.15 kbps on its gprs in my city. Surely BSNL won't be offering anything earth-shattering either.

It can probably offer at max at best equivlent to a 64k connection.But pings and RTT are horrible for gprs.Rest are in the hands of provider like how much time-slots and coding used, again i assume that you have a class 10 gprs capable phone/pc card.Typically u can get 6kBps (+-1) in the best case.In Airtel gprs' case i get 6k at best and average 2-3k.Ask if they can provide EDGE,it offers almost 2.5 times speed of gprs.

No,he's not.Primary requirment is a multislot gprs device,which is not available in 50% of gprs phones.and im not sure if itll work in all circles.but i believe its not worth it even if its free.
