I got a connection to BSNL broadband by paying advance amount of Rs 1,450 thats around 30$ .
The monthly charges are 500Rs /month and 100 Rs/month .
But the Biggest fault in the connection is Data transfer Limit 1GB
And one more thing that guy who installed me Bsnl broadband doesnot now how to do it in Linux .He told that it works onall the Operating Systems of Windows Platform but when it comes to Linux The answer is Flat NO
Ok atleast install in my windows xp so that I will try installing BSNL Broad band on my own on Linux Operating system .He installed successfully in windows xp and left.
