    initially the bill was fixed at Rs 750/month, but since last few months it comes to about Rs. 840/month, why this change/

    and whats the use of posting comments and all, does anyone in BSNL care about anything we say here?

  • manobendra ghosh - shillong December 18, 2014 10:20 pm

    the post says Rs 750/- for unlimited uses for 30 days and this is for prepaid EVDO data, what about post paid EVDO uses? It says Rs. 750/- for 30 days Home unlimited but I my bill for post paid EVDO comes to more than 800 Rupees/month, how is this possible??

    • pallav - patna January 26, 2016 3:50 pm

      because every postpaid bills in India is included with service tax .I have a broadband 675 rs but bill comes of 780 rs (BSNL)

  • manobendra ghosh August 6, 2013 12:00 am

    I am using a EVDO connection since last few months. Actually I approached BSNL Shillong for a 3G internet connection just after the Tata Photon closed it service in the area, but I was told that the area I am residing is a shadow area where 3G will not work satisfactorily (Rilbong, Near the Shillong Times Office, Shillong, Meghalaya, and instead I was advised to go for EVDO which I did. The service was somewhat good in the beginning but it started deteriorating gradually. Most of the time it shows “the remote computer did not respond. As for mobility, when I tried to use it at my office at Kyrdemkulai, it showed “No Service”. I was in Bangalore last month for about 10 days, where i even could not connect for single time. It showed “connected” when actually no site could be opened. The same thing happened when i was in Delhi last week.
    What’s the use of having a EVDO connection when I cant use it anywhere other then my home??
    Since last Saturday, 3rd of AUg 2013, most of the time the connection is not even working at my home. Most of the time it shows the great message of ” THE REMOTE COMPUTER DID NOT RESPOND” is this not cheating????????

  • Arjun A September 21, 2010 9:07 pm

    @virender kumar
    There is currently no 3x phone/modem available in the market. You are probably confusing 3x with EV-DO. Currently CDMA2000 1x comes in the following flavours – RTT, EV-DO Rel. 0 , EV-DO Rev. A , EV-DO Rev. B There is still no commercially available 3x phone/modem/data-card.
