you don't necessarily need to use their phone connection. i think you can take a zero rental plan. don't connect any instrument. just use the line for broadband. as simple as that. if you don't make any calls, you don't pay for any. you would need the connection and the wires for the broadband connection.

Sorry, I am not very sure how this works, but if i need a telephone line for the net, wont i nr\eed to dial to the service provider, like we used to do in dial-up ages? That means, phone cost and the age old problems of the telephone line. Phone line noise etc.....or am i wrong?

Zero rental plans are not available in BSNL . we can
opt for UL900 plus broadband plan in which phone
rental can be zero . downloading speed is 256kbps .

pls see more details at dataone tariff on BSNL site
