You asked for it and they responded. Most Indian geeks from the US, while visiting India, often feel frustrated without a high speed broadband connection at home. BSNL has introduced a short-term broadband plan for such users. All you need to have is a BSNL land phone on which a 512 Kbps connection will be activated.
You will be charged Rs 1,000 for the connection. Their are two plans, one upto a week and other upto a month. Check out BSNL announcement for more information. What is not clear is does it include the Modem rental and installation charges ? Such scheme is not available with Airtel however, Tata Indicom has a plan based on the usage hours so their is not much choice for the consumer for broadband internet access in India yet.
