Be careful wireless is not like wire line the speed keeps fluctuating and you will not get full speed what they promised and the speed depends on what time you use, network coverage in your area, number of users connected to tower in your area. Most of them had a very bad experience with evdo.

@BSNL why does bangalore get the crappiest plans? 1425 for 30 GB at a pathetic 4 Mbps….why can’t we get the same plans as Hyderabad?

You guys are seriously going to loose customers to ACT very soon….your attitude irritates me no end.

BSNL Should be privatized.
