Don't buy dongles from telecom companies (Airtel, aircel etc) since if you don't get required speeds .. you won't be able to use that dongle with another sim.

Buy a dongle from ebay separately



Yes. I get it. But then it hit me. I'll spend 2k on the dongle and then 3k at the router. Won't it make sense for me to then go for Airtel 4g lte? The biggest bottleneck for that is the hardware price of Rs.8000. But the guy is willing to give it for Rs.6000. Won't that make sense?


since reliance people offered Wimax connection .. why don't you give it a go?

Because of the price. Have you seen that? They are offering a 1 Mbps connection for a whopping Rs.2000 per month. And for Rs.1000 per month you get half the speed!

yea .. but airtel throttles speed and video streaming. Would you be comfortable knowing that if you dont like their service .. you would be stuck with their 6000rs worth hardware?

Right. If you're looking for proper data limits , get an mtnl3g sim and use it on bsnl's network. :DGet a dongle for 1200 from eBay And the Asus rt n13u for 2.7k. Enjoy ;)

Hathway has service in HSR 3rd sector. Decent one. Hardly few downtime. Customer care actually answer your call.

Moved to a new place in HSR 2nd Sector. Hathway did not have service there, hence I had to switch to a new service provider. Guess what? I get 10Mbps unlimited, no FUP for 1100+ :) Since I rent their modem also its 1200+. Evenings connection speeds will be around 7- 8 Mbps. Haven't checked during the day. BB given by a local cablewala, powered by BBNL.

I've been in HSR layout for a long time (Sector 2, and Sector 7). Airtel is present there everywhere. Maybe at the time you had asked, they might not have had ports free. Ask again, and this time tell them that you want to take a new 8 mbps connection. They'll definitely give you a connection.

Go for TTN, its a fibre optic, local provider, but well maintained and useful too. 10 Mbps at 1K.
check out for different plans. Service is good. and they provide their own equipment. FTTH it is.
