    no pacenet is not in delhi.

    But the site says it does exist in delhi
    PS: the site is quite old but i presume Pacenet is launched in delhi if its not till now then either wait for it or grab its equal competitor.

    Thats expensive alright i thought reliance would be cheaper than other ISPs

    India kahi aisa halat kahe ko hai

    yes it might be "BEING" launched but then you know at how these projects work on break-neck speeds in India.

    i didnt know they gave a limit download also.
    and btw i think net4india gives shared connection
    my very first connection was 64k from net4india never got that kind of speed
    used to get 2-3k morning, evening and night
    upgraded to 128k used to get around on average 7-9k and sometimes 50-60k in the morning (very rare) and that to because i was the only one with 128k shared connection if there would have been other users then i would have got speeds like 4-5k or a little more
    thats y i kicked those connection and also they had a crappy dialer Cyberroamclient looked like as if some kid created it

    hey play_safe if u r getting that kind of speed u r really lucky cause i never got that speed on a continuous basis

    and btw i paid for 64k net4india line RS 725 PM and for 128k RS 700 PM + Unlimited Download

    Hathway - Chennai

    ISP: Hathway

    Line: 128kbps cable

    Speed: 12KBps

    Connection : 98% uptime (but sometimes when needed critically lets me down!)

    Reasons claimed for downtime:
    Cable wars between hathway and SCV (owned by central IT minister maran) - scv cuts hathway cables often!

    Cost : RS 750 monthly

    Plan: 8pm to 8 am and on sundays full day

    Download limit: 1GB (peanuts for powerusers)

    investment on cable modem: Rs 3000

    one time charge for installation arnd Rs 1000

    what you need on ur pc: Ethernet card or USB depending on the modem model

    modem advice: buy motorola surfboard 4200 modem (more expensive! donno current price)
    Problems faced
    Download usage monitoring on hathway server is erratic - always shows more than what i actually downloaded. at nearly the end of the month their download usage page becomes inaccessible and u r left in the lurch about ur usage.

    their webpage claims only download is calculated but in reality it is download + upload

    City : Chennai

    Customer Service

    Recommended : yes, till a better package for unlimited download comes along
