When the Huawei 3G Dongle E303C was placed inside the room in Central Delhi, Residential complex 1/2 kms from Rajendra Place Metro Station. I got a maximum DL speed of 206 Kbps. When I put the dongle outside the Window with a long USB Cable Max Speed was 260 Kbps. In Mobile Partner Software the network is shown as EDGE Vodafone IN. I think VDFN has capped the speeds to 2G for diwali. On clicking this page link… Read more »

Upon connecting the Huawei 303C dongle to my Android 4.0 MTNL Teracom Tablet inside the room, with Vodafone SIM, I got 2 blue bar signals and only 2G Network @ 200 Kbps because of which I could not send a single e-mail via Yahoo Mail App. To send the same I had to activate Rs 4/- Data Plan of MTNL which gave 40 Mb for 1 Day and sent the E-Mail. Even outside the House in Verandah the Speed was not any better. MTNL gave full 4 Blue Bars and 3G Symbol upon connection in the Android Tab inside the… Read more »

Yep it’s free but 100 MB in 3g will vaporise very soon so customers must be careful of their Balances!

That’s right. I set my data limit and keep it very safe like 90% , earlier used 3g watchdog these days feature inbuilt in phone. One should definitely use that. I learnt my lesson hard way lost 500 + rupees in a single instance. since then i Either use a dedicated sim for data on dual sim phone or zero balance with free minutes for calling or software for data limit. These operators are fraud. Give 100mb and deduct 20 Rs in a jiffy
