>> Rent Rs.1000
Features :
> 10 Mbps till 4 GB, 8 Mbps from above 4 GB to 6 GB, 4 Mbps from above 6 GB to 8 GB and true unlimited at 2 Mbps after 8 GB.

The above speed should be got for upload and download purpose when used seperately.

Tht marginal difference will become major difference only if BSNL launches true unlimited 2 Mbps upload and 2 Mbps download speed in a single connection when used seperately.
