I recently took a reliance NetConnect CDMA modem Internet connection from a near by reliance web world. I am pretty much satisfied with the connection and speed, considering that this is just dial-up but a high speed dial-up connection. I had to take this since there is no other good providers in my area.
Basically your NetConnect data card's performance depends on signal strength at your place. Take any reliance CDMA phone to the place where you will be using it (like your room). See that it is having full signal inside your room. If it is having full signal, then you can have a very decent surfing speed and download speed of about 14KBps-16KBps (yes.. it is Kilo Bytes) I have full signal (5 bars) in my room and I am quite happy with my connection.
Coming to Net-Connect freedom@night plan, which I have taken, they allow free download from night 10pm to morning 6am. I just tried to download some *** (edited) stuff and I was surprised by the resuls. It had downloaded about 360MB in a night. Theoritically, you can download 420MB in 8 hours if you have a speed of 16KBps.
Remember, it is still very costly to use other than the free usage time slot. It will cost you 50paise/min that is 30Rs/hour in the non-free time period.
So take this only if there is no other good providers in your area and have good CDMA phone signal at your place.
I will post about some hacks in my next post!! Remember to check back.
