Refers to the 590 NUJust at a time when i was really happy with the mtnl connectivity came the billing jhols... 1. the bill can go upto any amount... even 20k2. bill is not just 590... but 590 + 80 = 670 + 10.2% service Tax = 750 + 40% income tax as it enters the taxable expenditure..... therefore 590/month = Rs.1050 for 500mb dl in the day n tension as to what the bill wud be...so wat i thot was to go in for the pacenet 256 mb unltd(mb & hours) for Rs.1200. the prblem is taht connectivity wont be as good as mtnl... so il keep the mtnl but will take the nil monthly rental one where i pay rs.2/mb i dl... so i can use mtnl as when my pacenet goes off(which i know will be often).wat do u think?

It is not 500 MB download everyday, it is 500 MB you can download in a month cummulative during day time (8 am to 11:59 pm).
It is like 16.66 MB per day = 500 MB per month.

I have the pacenet 256, I have no problem with connectivity or speed. Its just that they will cut your speed by as much as 3/4th if you download more than 1 GB everyday. Mine is cut now for half the day to 64 kbps, while the other half of the day I get the full 256. Actually if I also count simultaneous uploads, I get 272 kbps.MTNL is definitely rotten, I would never consider them until the day they actually have an unlimited scheme for 24 hours. And even if they do come out with such a scheme, I am sure that there will be a definite problem of not getting full speed.So why does the pacenet go off often in your area? any reason?

i have still to pay more then 670 bucks.. for the last 2 months man..maybe they are looting you. but not me :p :p..@yogi.. isp`s like pacenet/exattnet/sify/hathway are not in every area in mumbai.. if they were mtnl wouldnt have had soo many subscribers .. and considering mtnl never had any downtimes except in sept. .. its a lot better... and hopefuly will be... and you should understand that adsl2 tech is different to your normal isp... and you really want inflated electricity bills? by downloading the whole day? .. atleast i dont want :p :p ... heehhee

pacenet does not expire, they just cut the speed to half. And I have never had disconnections. Its true they are not there in all areas, otherwise no one in their right mind would go for stupid schemes that mtnl comes up with. About electricity bills - I have the same speed as mtnl plus I get more for the rest of the day, while all of you just get for the 12 am - 8 am slot. So what's better?I keep the monitor turned off, and the cpu does not consume more power than the tubelight or fan. So where does the electricity go up ? :)
