the first one to be covered by connect broadband will be haryana circle. waiting for connect to bring their broadband plans here. they have their broadband available 15 Kms away from my city in Rajpura (Punjab). They are a reliable isp in Punjab. I m excited with this news. videocon mobile service is also doing good now here. their, as they term it, PAUNAY 3G or 2.75G network speed is just awesome. 220-272kbps. viber works great with this.
