Do you use broadband or data card or cable modem?

Now a days there are varieties of internet connection. Many factors come into play to determine which one is best. Initial investment, monthly price, speed, bandwidth and the unlimited free time offered with the package etc are some of them. I have been using BSNL broadband. It gives free unlimited from 2 am to 8 am everyday.However I seldom avail this opportunity. Dowloading large files becomes easy during this free time. Another benefit is that I get 175 calls(landline teleohone attached to the broadband connection) free monthly. Speed is also high. Still i am thinking of changing to data card, because, with it you can access the internet anywhere within my country. It is slightly costlier that the existing broadband connection. However, before switching I would like to know from current user of datacard.Thanks!

I am using unlimited internet from MTNL which is Triband Connection so calls doesn't effect it and it has great speed and there are no problems of server down or some network problem as it is available 24/7 and 365 days a year. i am very much happy with it.

I use broadband and a router, actually my two neighbors had connected in us, so that their payment will add in the bill, it is the same price whenever do you have more computer just in one connection like broadband.

I use wireless broadband services for my internet. Since it's wireless, than i can use it for my mobile internet activity. It offering me internet speed up to 3.6 Mbps. But actually the fact i never got such speed. Averagely i can have speed 1 Mbps to 2 Mbps. Its my best speed ever. I think it's quite good and enough for my internet activities. Have a nice day and happy mylotting.

Hi Akumei. Its nice to know that you already have BSNL broadband at ur place. BSNL is one of the best and fastest ISP in India. I have reliance though but we have a BSNL connection at my fathers place. Also my office laptop has a TATA INDICOM datacard. Now let me tell you that what TI/Reliance data cards offer is just crap spped. Even if they say there are high speeds, i havent ever seen very high speeds on the data card. Its always poor than broadband.And is also dependant on the signal strength. But if you are talking about the new reliance connection which i think offers upto 3MBPS speed, then i would suggest you go for it. A friend of mine has got this and he gets hell lot of speed. always more than 1MBPS. But there is a problem with this as well, the unlimited package, offers a max of 10GB /month....(i dont know why then do they call it unlimited). But if you are looking only for high speeds while browsing then i suppose 10GB is sufficient limit for a month.

We use cable broadband at home, but I'm thinking of getting some kind of data card from my internet service provider, so that I can take my computer on the road with me when I travel occasionally. I've seen them advertized over the last few years, and I'd love to have one.
