Hi,I intent to buy a 3G dongle to be used as my primary internet connection in Noida. So i want something which would give good and reliable speeds and cheap unlimited plans (aleast 15GB a month, preferable 30GB). Tata photon plus is giving unlimited 15GB for 1200/- Do you suggest any other operator with better plans?Thanks

Looks like the 4500/- plan has been withdrawn. However, the 3G 1650 plan is available. What is the FUP in this? How is the performance of MTNL 3G in noida generally?

Alright. 200 GB fup in the 1650 plan. Network would depend on your exact location in Noida. Decent 3G coverage here in Gurgaon. Speeds average at 2.5 mbps. But the network isnt consistent. I get full strength and 2 - 2.5 mbps, but my friend who lives a couple of blocks away gets half the speeds I get it.

I got a prepaid MTNL sim and am using it on my android phone HTC Desire S. I am getting the 'H' symbol and speeds of around 300+ kbps which is considerably less than the 1-3 mbps i was hoping. Do i have to do something separately for HSDPA? If someone has already gone through this, would appreciate some assistance. These are the settings i am using right now -

Name : mtnlAPN: gprsppsdelProxy : (Not Set)Port : 9401Username : mtnlPassword : mtnl123all else untouched.

Hsdpa is enabled by default. Now, low speeds could mean 2 things - network is poor in your area, or mtnl has capped the speeds. Try using gprsppsdel as apn and.leave everything else, including port , username, password blank. Also, have you recharged with a data plan ? If you havent, then recharge with the cheapest data pack and try.
