Time and Again, we have heard your voice that BSNL 3G service is expensive and we agree that it needs to be made more affordable. Until then, users seeking mobility in broadband to work from School or Home or SOHO, can rely on BSNL EVDO or Reliance NetConnect Broadband+ or Tata Photon+.
We recommend Reliance NetConnect Broadband+ or Tata Photon+ for users of Mumbai and Delhi or anybody who frequently visit those cities since you can avail of roaming Boradband access [Kindly confirm the Billing while roaming].
BSNL EVDO: BSNL’s EVDO is a great Wireless broadband Plan for users seeking mobility. The deal is great, especially in South India – Having taken the connection in Bangalore, we enjoy South India roaming and the cost is just Rs 650 [Unlimited Access, Speed varies by Signal Strength. Never got the advertised 1 Mbps, but 384Kbps to 768 Kbps is not bad at all].
Access – Access methodology of EVDO based broadband is using a USB stick / antenna. If you wish to purchase the USB stick it costs Rs 4,000 + taxes or if you lease it, it costs Rs 200 / month. [We recommend to lease it] You can install it on any Operating System. BSNL EVDO Drivers for Windows 2K SP4, XP, Vista or even Linux are available.
BSNL is using CDMA 1X Technology for providing EVDO based broadband services and is continuously expanding its BTS’.

I think BSNL/MTNL 3G is the best comparing to Reliance NetConnect and Tata Photon. Even its better than any other Home Broadband with 2 Mbps. It gives amazing great speed with good coverage in Delhi,Mumbai,Bangalore and Chennai.
But don't know why BSNL is not making its an alternative to other Mobile broadband. They always market it as for Video Calling, and find the Data Card for it is very difficult.
Sorry to say but Photon Plus gives an fucking speed of 153kb/s after 5GB or 10 GB downloading according to your plan. I upgraded myself to BSNL Broadband 900 UL/month and it gives download speed of 200-235kb/s. Never Buy any CDMA data cards.
It seems like BSNL is supporting the other private companies to stay on track for the 3g.coz first BSNL was giving a 3.1 MBPS speed data card for RS.750 unlimited per month and suddenly they shut off that deal and raised it’s 3g plan costs.
and now guess what in some of the towns they have even shut off the EVDO services also.now the only option for you is to turn your heads towards the tata,reliance etc,etc.
gotta say governmet only supports the componies not the consumers in this country.
but forawhile reliance broadband+ is a good deal.
hope BSNL will bring those 3g or EVDO unlimited plans soon.
