check with any user of the other broadband service. depending upon their experiences, decide yourself. i won't recommend sify at all but i guess that sity dude is just a subset of sify.

Never heard of Sity broadband. No website. All that they have is one airtel and one reliance mobile phone number. I can't trust their service. I have placed a request for a new connection at Hathway. I hope they provide connection in that area.

How good is Airtel Datacard? I have IBM T43 notebook. Is it worthy to take 144kbps unlimited pack for Rs.1000. Own the card by paying Rs.6,000. Is it worthy to take this. Will it be better than Sify or Hathway broadband @256kbps?

Sounds reasonable.. Bet you won't get that on sify..I'm thinking of opening a topic by name " Average Downtime per user " and post all my downtimes there.. is that allowed admins?;)
