Broadband + offers good experience as good as wired 2 Mbps ADSL++.
How ever the cost & Tariff is very high which prevents the growth of this new tech very seriously. Rcom offers very cheep tariff for Voice, But Data charges very high. The normal home user will avoid the BB+ usage. Only Businessman can handle this.

My friend says, Wired 2-Mbps is much faster compared to these USB-Wireless 3.1-Mbps. Is that true, have anyone experienced it?

rcom… when ur gprs tariff is at Rs.99 for 300mb, why does your evdo cost rs.250 for 300mb. even pay as you use is re.1 for evdo compared to 50p/mb for gprs.

evdo is atleast 4-5 time spectrum efficient than gprs/edge. infact, rcom should be offering evdo+ at rs.99 for 1GB (at least).

entry level prices for evdo+ should be brought down to rs.99 similar to gprs, for it to spread and benefir millions of indians. the device cost of rs.3500 is also too costly… it should be rs.1500-1999 in line with global prices.
