Hi GuysHave been a Sify user for some time and I need to get rid of that crappy service very soon before I get out of my mind. I have almost fully decided that I will be switching to MTNL.Can you guys help me choose what plan I should take. I am a moderate (ocassionally heavy) downloader and would like to be online 24/7. From the MTNL tariff on the site I see that the DSL NU (TriB 590 NU) is the only unlimited plan. Should I go for this or do you guys have a better opinion. Also, whats up with this -- neccassarily switch OFF and ON the ADSL modem before and after free night unlimited period --. What would happen if I forget to do this or are there any workarounds for this feature. Thanks in advance and Best WishesNeo Smart

If u are in mumbai 590NU is the best option available. If you are in delhi they have unlimited 256kbps connection @949/month.There are many workarounds available for switching the router off and on as per free NU time, just do a little search and you will surely find many options for that on this forum.Enjoy! :)

590nu is best only if u download a lot. not otherwise. it all depends on how muchdata u download.

Thanks very much guys. You people have been of great help. Some of you have asked how much I download. Well, I have to be online during daytime for my work. And, if I do get down to get something from the net, invariably its is a movie. So even as I get 2 movies a week, that should calculate to as much as 2 GB a week (including my code and other downloads). I do most of my downloads at night time and keep my PC ON for a major part of the time. So my data transfer is close to "a lot" I guess. So 590NU it is then !!!@ imranais -- Brother, I am in mumbai so 590NU is the only option for my kind of a downloader. Although 256kbps@949/month looks as mouth watering as my Mom's cooked food ;) @ Amish -- Brother, I dont even earn 43k a month :p :p. But this should be worth keeping in my wish list for the future ;)
