Be online from 230 to 730. That is the safest bet. Login at 230 and logout at 730. 73s de dxer

Night unlimited (2 am to 8 am) offer rom BSNL has been published by their websites, at both regional and national level, in popular dailies and news articles. Now its not possible for them to back out and denying the offer especially when almost all the Dataone users have started to enjoy the NU offer since 16th Aug. Even if they manage to do it, 99% of the dataone users will be slapped with skyhigh b'band bill and the user base of Dataone would be lost, not to mention about adverse legal consequences. Hence I seriously doubt that it will happen even remotely.

Furthermore, I personally visited the D.E.(Broadband) at Kolkata, and he reassured that the backend of the dataone billing system is running OK although it may bot be evident from the usage history available to the cusomers from the weblogin page, but that is because of the faulty software made by a third-party IT company, which will be rectified shortly.

I asked him as to how BSNL is going to treat the downloads if an user logs in at say, 1:50 am and stops at say, 8:10 am. He said that BSNL is equipped with a system that can determine traffic movement made by the user between 2 am and 8 am, and will adjust the billing accordingly. However, he said that there is no official document regarding this.

I personally download huge data during NU period, by loogin in at 2:10am and logging out at 7:50 am, ( with automated scheduler software, of course), and the dataone usage details from the BSNL's page (not the Dataone weblogin page) shows that my august usage is well below 1 GB, I think that proves that NU usages are not billed by BSNL.

Its www.calcuttatelephones.com for me. It gives details of metered calls for BFones, Internet call details (dialup), BSNL Mobile details, all billing details and now Dataone usage details. To know the address of your regional website, ask your local BSNL office.
