Hi, guys.

I just found out about bsnl 3g 1099 offer. Is it truly unlimited? And whats the lowest and highest download speed(divided by 8,of course) u getting?

I live in pune (Maharashtra) and burhanpur (Madhya pradesh). Will i be able to get this 1099 unlimited plan in both places?

I also have tp-links wireless router 3420. So which dongle i should buy which will be compatible with it?

EDIT: So i bought 3g bsnl sim and using it on redmi 3s. In speedtest app i m getting speed of only upto 245 kbps (actual speed divide by 8), but in my pc on IDM through hotspot i m getting speed upto 250kb and for few seconds upto 300kbps, while average its around 235kb i think. In utorrent getting upto only 210kbps, average is 160kbps.

Also is it truly unlimited or after 50gb or something it goes down in terms of speed?

its a airtel dongle e5573 that I purchased unlocked. Its 2g/3g/4g. Even works with Jio. If you are looking to buy dongle I suggest you the same.

U mean actual speed divided by 8, when u say 300?

Where did u buy the dongle and for how much? And if u bought online could u please provide link also?
Thanks

Edit: I just saw its reviews on amazon, but the device is also wifi router and doesnt seem to be something, that i can connect to my router, like a normal dongle.
Please advise something like a dongle than a dongle+router combo.

@husaintaherali - The all-India BSNL site lists the 1099 unlimited plan, so most likely it's available in both places, but you should still check your local BSNL site and/or talk to the babus in your local BSNL office to know for sure. In any case, its prepaid, so give it a go. Worst case scenario, speeds will be throttled after 50 or 100GB, won't be the end of the world. Don't recharge ever again if you think it won't work for you.

I'm in Kolkata and BSNL 3G D/L speeds here range from about 1.5Mbps (192kbps) to around 6Mbps (786kbps) depending on the time of day. Mostly, though, it hovers around the 2Mbps (256kbps) mark, although, the less said about upload speeds, the better. And yes, the 1099 unlimited plan is available here. Don't know about Pune and MP.

EDIT: I have the Netgear AC327U dongle that works alright, even has voice-calling, SMS and USSD facilities, but don't know if it works with routers. Google is your friend, as always. :)
