    Hi All,

    I am from Bangalore and stay near Majestic area. I too bought a BSNL 3G with a
    data card after Diwali. The signal strength in my area is almost 98-100%.

    Considering this, I get an average speed of 1.5 – 2 Mbps.

    The maximum file download speed which I observed while downloading a file form Oracle website was 575 KBps. Remember its KBps and not Kbps, so its a caps ‘B’.
    So that was truly amazing. Therefore the maximum download speed I noticed was 4.5 Mbps and an average of 2 Mbps most of the time.

    The least speed observed in the same site was 120-140 KBps with a slight fluctuation.

    Torrent downloads with 4 file simultaneously, the total bandwith for download nearly reached 390-400 KBps, and upload was 1-1.5 Mbps.

    This is truly amazing provided u have sufficient signal in ur respective areas.

    The only doubt I have here is whether the 4200 Rs, plan for 6 months is really unlimited or is there any cap on the usage which they call as “Fair Usage Policy”.

    One more question please.
    Am using Huawei data card, model no e1752, which I purchased for Rs 3800/= Is this the correct price? Or have I paid more for this ?

    Any body who knows about this or who want to know anything about BSNL’s 3G experience can drop me a mail to

    Mohammed P.
