hmm....rubbing salt on our wounds or was it an honest mistake? I dunno..........!!!!!!!!!!11111 :angry: But STOP giving wrong info to people ok! :angry:

Godwin, this plan is NOT, i repeat NOT, available to Mumbai subscribers. Its availble only to Delhi subscribers. Go in for DSL199 or similar plan according to your parents' requirements.

And do buy your own DSL Modem (and WiFi router).MTNL has run out of stock for modems and if you have your own modem then you can get connection in a week's time.

No worries with the modem, I will bring along my trusted Billion BiPAC 7402VL (modem/router/voip - no wireless)I had a look at the Triband website but could not find the DSL199 planWhich 256 and 512 (preferred) plans do you suggestThanks again

I don't know about other ISPs but I think Airtel has no installation or registration costs, so as a temporary thing, that might be ideal. They are pretty fast to set it up too, and you can rent the modem from them too for Rs. 99 / month. Not sure whether they rent / sell WiFi modems.

I stay at Kalina-Mumbai so can say Airtel is not available here.Go for 590NU (256kbps, 1GB limit and night 12am-8am free) or DSL599 (512kbps with 1 GB limit).MTNL-Triband is the best option and plz get a modem along if u want a connection pretty quick... :)
