Dear Rudradeep Biswas please wake up and doe little research before publishing any article,
You are talking about 2.75G. In India none of ISP provide bandwith of 160kbps, and GPRS(2G) speed can go upto 177kbps, while 2.75G or EDGE connectivity class 10 speed is 236.8kbps , do you think from heart videocon giving a bandwith of more than 80kbps (from heart).

so can you compare videocon 60kbps to 800kbps…..
