I had applied for Broadband on Dec6,2006 and eventually got installed on Feb 1.I hav nightly plan.I am using USB to access net,my connection is not smooth(i loose connection a lot,USB flickers),will LAN give better results?Also,why there is 1 GB limit? In this age of videos and podcasts thats seems very less.590 seems too costly.I hav already used up 1gb,as I listened to lot of podcasts and videos.Dont yu think its expensive

LAN connection will be definately a stable one... do change your DNS settings - ( for that please search the forums or visit www.opendns.com), as MTNL DNS are bit slow...

About Pricing.... i totally agree with you, but at the present, that is all what you n we have got...

u can go for unlimited plans at lower speed...

at lower speed???256 kbps is the lowest MTNL offers :puntil and unless he's getting 2 mbps in the night time...go for unlimited at 949/-...it's a better choice...even i crossed my limits quite a no. of times and ended up paying more than the unlimited price...then i finally changed it to unlimited...now no tensions :D

You won't exhaust your limits if you're a night bird like me :) . I suggest queing videos for download at night and watching them the next day.

Check the site properly, you'll find the unlimited plans!
I suggest you go for 590NU plan, which will give you 1 GB during daytime and unlimited access at 256 kbps from 12:00 night to 08:00 AM morning. Just plan your downloads, put them on at night and go to sleep! I have downloaded more than 3-4 GB during night, plus 1 GB free during day, and I think that it is a very reasonable plan as of today vis-a-vis others like Airtel and Sify.

I have checked Airtel, but could not find the offer you mentioned.
check it out here http://airtel-broadband.com/tariff/tariff.htm
So we have the options
(1) Pay Rs.700 and get 128 kbps unlimited (slow of course)
(2) Pay Rs.590 plus Rs.50 modem rent and get 256 kbps (faster) speed, 1GB per month, plus unlimited downloads during the night at 256 kbps.
It is for you to decide what you prefer.
Bye...
