Hi Thanks for some quick replies,,

Are you an obessive downloader? What is your monthly budget for internet. What could be your daily use?


My Primary usage will be for my parents to use this for the skype video chat. Budget is not an issue. I am ready to spend upto Rs.2000 per month.
Looking for unlimited and faster broadband near Arakkonam in a village. As I said I have a Vodafone tower. The vilage is called Kumpinipet on the sholingar road.

I wanted to know if the tower is there should I also know weather it can provide broadband, 2G, 3G, etc... I am a new to this.. please bear with me to provide some help.

best way to check....1.wired Broadband.......go to nearest BSNL office and ask your cable TV wallah.he will know any private cable wallah provide internet2.Mobile : I doubt 3G /voda or any other operator will work. May be ArakonamDont you have 3G /smart phone.? Geta vodafone pre paid sim, put a 2G pack first and check down load speed in the phone. You should get 160-220 kbps if the tower is atleast EDGE (not GPRS ) enabled.Ask in Arakonam "all company show room /shops -3G enabled services and tower locations.

Yes Wired is the best option for you. BSNL Broadband BBG Combo ULD 1,350 is the plan suits your needs better. Unlimited 2 Mbps Upto 20 GB & 512kbps after that. Or you may check reliance broadband availability in your place. They have 1499 Unlimited plan 1 Mbps on day & 2 Mbps @ night (10 pm - 8 am) Both the plans have no FUP limit If BSNL is the only option. Get the best wireless router cum modem from the mkt. So you can share the connection for your laptop and other wifi enabled gadgets if any The vodafone tower in your place may be 3G capable. But there are no unlimited plans available in the mkt for the wireless broadband. Both in gsm and cdma. (BSNL EVDO has 750 UL Plan, But the speed is not consistent)

If you are unable to get a wired line, you will have to try out the various wireless options by trial & error. Do these operators give demos? I do not know.
Remember, wireless speeds are very dependent on the area & the number of people using the same cell tower.

Wireless can burn a hole in your pocket and speeds might not be up to the mark. Keep these two things in mind while checking out a 3G connection, 2G won't be able to meet your needs as it supports a max of 144 kbps, Bsnl and reliance have unlimited 3G plans with fup. I think bsnl has a fup of 5gb for 799 or something, reliance has something on the lines of 10gb for a higher price.
