Atlast, I have a DataOne connection at home. I applied for a BSNL connection during Dec 2005. After a few visits to the local BSNL exchange, I gave up, thanks to their bureaucracy. But when BSNL announced their unlimited plan, a few weeks back, I did not want to wait anymore. I found the lineman who services our area, who was immediately willing to do all the needful, in favor of some quick bucks. Overnight, I had my connection. Last Tuesday, I applied for DataOne and a couple of days back a gentleman called when he could drop down for setting up the connection. Since he did not have the modem in stock, he said he will come on Saturday.

He came down today, with a Huwaei MT841 and a PCMCIA Wireless card for the modem. Did the installation in flat 10 minutes, provided me with details for configuring and it was done. When I asked him, if there was a way to test the speed, happily pointed to Airtel's Customer care site. Amazingly efficient. If only BSNL also outsources all its services and gets rid of the "babudom".

Various speed tests shows the download speed between 20-40 KBps. Will need to play around more to see how it goes.
