256Kbps. There are currently no installation charges. But they are taking 500 bucks as security deposit(refundable). Which area do you live in magnet?

magnet, you are very lucky. But Hathway has a bad habit of caping ports which I hate. Also they dont allow p2p :(

They are surely there in Thane and South Bombay. They are also present in some western suburbs of Mumbai.[/b]

I live in Thane....Called them up today, they took down my name, ph #, and address....Said as soon as it reaches Thane we will contact you...

Am really eagerly waiting for Airtel, coz I've heard lotsa good stories about em...

Cheers,
Amogh

keep me updated as well...AFAIK, hathway does block many ports especially p2p, VoIP etc... My friend has a hathway 64Kbps unlimited connection and he gets about 8-10KBps!
