MTNL charged Rs. 1500 for phone connection and Rs. 1500 for broadband connection! Even when it's a government company how come it charged so much...

No I am talking of getting both the phone and broadband installed. So it was around Rs. 1500 (Rs. 1300 if you say) for broadband and around Rs. 1500 for phone in the case of MTNL. That's what I wanted to know about Airtel. I just called up their so hard to get through customer care and was told the net cost would be Rs. 1300 to get phone+broadband installed for the 128 k unlimited plan. Since I already coughed up Rs. 3000 for Triband only in Sept 2006 and it's not that bad with a daytime 1 GB limit (the speed is good of course and the exchange is just 300 m away from my home) I will stay with it for now ;)
