Okay, here's the deal. I'm new to this. I'm planning to take a connection. I'd be happy with 2GB of data a month and unlimited night usage. I'm plannin to buy a wifi enabled mobile phone and so i need to use my bb connection through the mobile phone as well. I don't know the hardware requirements and how to configure them. Anyone here can help me? I guess i'll need a wifi modem? Is that enough? What's a router? Is it seperate? Please help me out keeping in mind i'm a real noob!

No thats pretty much it.....you dont need more than that.....want Wi-fi....you have your modem...2GB data and night UL....i guess you are going for 500 monthly...... :/You can buy a modem of your own or the BSNL guys will provide you......If they provide you....then ask them for a UTAStarcom Wi-Fi modem...thats a decent modem in their scale...:)

Please mention

1. Do you have a land line already ?

2. Your budget ?

You can choose BBG FN Combo 600 which costs Rs. 600 per month + 10.3 % tax. It gives day time limit of 2.5 GB and night unlimited (both at up to 2 Mbps). You can get details here

.:BB COMBO:.

Also check this plan selector : BB Plan Selector

You can use this site to apply as it is very fast

BSNL AT YOUR DOORSTEP---Udaan input page

From what I heard, BSNL does not supply modems any more. You can check at your exchange and confirm. Normally they will suggest a modem and once you buy it, will configure it for you. You can also check other threads in this section for modem suggestion.

Hope this helps. Feel free to ask if you have any queries.

Yeah, i've a land line connection and my budget is 400-500. I'd be postponing my downloads for the night. I'd like to know whether a heavy day time browsing will shrink in 2GB per month, i don't want to pay 10000s as my landline bill. Thanks for the replies folks. :) i'l keep the thread updated.

I think simple browsing will be not much data intensive. You can use a bandwidth meter from Networx or Shaplus and check how much data is consumed and plan accordingly. But if you use streaming audio and YouTube you will have a very tight data limit.

Always welcome :)Even watching YouTube video will account to download. In actual, 2.5 GB is too low seeing current data consumption for basic usage. The plan was devised some 2 years ago and they haven't updated the limit (and it is quite unlikely that they will do). Keep a close eye on your usage details if you are particular about avoiding huge bills.You can also use UL 499 or UL Combo 625 which are 256 Kbps unlimited plan. But the speed is very low compared to current standards.
