Finally switched to the [:http://tataindicombraodband.in|Tata Indicom Broadband Service] from BSNL dataone today. The Tata Indicom folks made me wait for almost a month for the connection, but first look at it seems to say that it was worth the wait. Few good things I observed about the service: * They provide a very good quality D-Link modem/router. * Pricing is good. * No installation charges (on advance payment for 4 months). * No limits on data transfers. But the connection wasn't as straightforward and easy to use on Ubuntu as on Windows. There are no Linux drivers for the USB interface. The first thing I tried was to get hold of the the latest kubuntu iso torrent :) Azureus kept warning me of the "NAT problem", so instead of disabling the NAT on the router, I enabled UPnP on it which made things just fine. Again, DNS entries kept flushing on this connection - thanks to DHCP and slowing things down, so this gave a temporary relief: sudo chattr +i /etc/resolv.conf Now, to try and figure out how I can use a wifi router over this, and make the router they've supplied to just act as a bridge ;)
