You can check on their site.U can download at night unlimited. U have to protect yrself by logout at 10 pm on their servers and login again at 10:01 pm on their server timings. "or i have to disconnect and then reconect." -->thats best policy rather then fighting later with dumb people.

112 MB total either upload or download or both.

Download Sify Guard from http://broadbandforum.in/SuperSify_Keep_Alive-t1613.html and this may solve your problem. You can download unlimited from 10pm and 8 am, no one is gonna warn u for that. It will start counting your 150 MB after 8 am.

2)How much can i download or upload maximum and minimum in 1 hour
Please tell me in mb. [/b]

If you are taking the 256 Kbps pack then you will get 30 KBps upload/download speed (the speed for upload/download also depends on the server from/to where u r downloading/uploading)

3)how to renew pack . 256 Unlimited pack that is for 795 i am purchasing now for renewal what will be the cost. it will be less or same[/b]

U can renew from either your CTO or from the sify site. If u renew online then u wont be charged extra but if u renew from your CTO then he might charge u extra Rs 50 or 100 as service charge.

4)how to share and download files from other computers
What software it wants. how to connect to others
Please note i have 2 computers i connect them to lan to exchange files.

Download Kazaa, emule, Shareaza, edonkey 2000 etc

5)Will i get static ip address
If yes can i always renew my ip address so that no one mischieve with that[/b]

Your IP will be static, you can request your CTO to assign u a different IP.

6)can i use norton antivirus with sify. i dont want to use mcafee.[/b]

Better download an alternate client for Sify. There are 2 but I suggest you to download SuperSify from http://broadbandforum.in/sify/supersify/ along with Sify Guard from http://broadbandforum.in/SuperSify_Keep_Alive-t1613.html

You will not require your default Sify BB client to connect. Supersify can do everything u want.

7) Will i get full 256 kpbs speed.i mean 2-3 years back when many took sify here the provider cheted many and had shared many users so they where getting less speed.
[/b]


You will get 256/8 = 32 KBps speed

8)also do i get email with sify.[/b]

Yeah, they do provide a mail. Contact the customer care for further details.

9)If i have problems for sify.i mean speed or dwontime. then where to ask
and how many hours it is solved.[/b]

For the downtimes call your CTO n for other issues Call on their customer care number 16003453330 or 26932501 (if u r in delhi)


10)also if in our building 7-8 people takes connection
and in night i am only on internet all other are not will i get more speed
or same.
[/b]

Same speed. But not sure.



Code:
11)Also if i download files with shared person computer .i mean lan or hub, will it also be counted  and limits 150 mb only in day . Sorry for asking so many questions
As long as u r using your username of sify, the data transfer will be counted from your account.

CTO = Cable TV Operator (the people who are providing you internet service)

Install an antivirus + a firewall that will keep you virus free.

Do yourself a favour and DO NOT opt for Sify. Take anything and I mean anything but Sify. Even Dial Up will serve you better, trust me and the loads of other people on this forum.
