a small bit of sunshine.. an article which appeared in today's (20th july) `telegraph' (kolkata edition, page 15) states that the government is planning to launch a rs.10 per hour broadband package (the speed has not been mentioned but it will be 256kbps or more). what are your opinions about the same? this could well set `bsnl' and the rest to think about their current pricings. even this along with a unlimited package of rs.375 (by vsnl) could be combined to give us both unlimited monthly broadband surfing and 100 hours of unlimited broadband (for data transfer) at rs.1375 (taxes are always applicable).. mini-cheers... pupudada!one can also opt for just 30 hours or 20 hours or whatever of broadband as per their requirements!!

10 bucks an hour... it sounds like a cybercafe. but still a good deal none the less. 5 hours a day means 1500 bucks of unlimited bandwidth.

Govt mulls broadband bait to jack up PC sales ALOKANANDA GHOSH Calcutta, July 19: Use the broadband carrot to drive computer sales; that’s the government mantra these days. The Rs-10-per-hour broadband package will work out cheaper for PC owners. The only other available broadband packages, 24-hour connections from BSNL and MTNL, cost Rs 500 per month. However, on an average, people surf the net for about an hour each day or 10 hours every week. At Rs 10 per hour, the monthly package could work out to just Rs 300. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
