My Valliamma wanted to take a new broadband connection and I submitted an application for the plan HOME 500 COMBO of Dataone. With this plan, internet has effectively become free! You have to pay just Rs.500 per month, no extra phone rent, and you get 1.5 GB download limit and free unlimited download during 0200-0800 hours (256 kbps upto 2 mbps), not to mention 175 free calls per month instead of the default 50! When I estimated using Valliamma’s last telephone bill, the cost would actually come down by a few rupees after taking the broadband connection!
