BSNL Wimax Review
I decided to switch to broadband service, after being disappointed from wireless Internet services. Even reliance 3G didn't prove reliable enough. Broadband was the last option available to me so that I could quickly do my work over web. I went to BSNL exchange to apply for a broadband connection for my home. I inquired about the cost and found that I would have to pay near about 700 bucks every month. I asked about the quality of service, reliability etc. I was not too confident with any of their answer. However he told me about WiMax service from BSNL. He called WiMax to be a specialist for Internet. The per month cost was just a little bit more than broadband nearly 870 bucks for unlimited connection. I made up my mind for WiMax as I was aware about bad reputation of Broadband.
I applied for the WiMax connection and deposited security charges for the outdoor CPE + one month advance rent. My application was processed soon next day, and they issued me the hardware after activating my device.
I installed the device myself, and placed the outdoor CPE on roof facing it towards BSNL exchange.
NOTE - BSNL exchange is near my home, hence no problem with range.
I connected my laptop with the cable and got connected without any hassles. The speed was more than what I had expected. I am getting at an average of 200 Kbps download speed. The connection is also reliable. It didn't disconnect even a single time except for the first time when my outdoor CPE was not in the line of sight with BSNL tower. After adjusting my CPE I was able to surf normally. I would recommend you to go for WiMax service as it is worth its cost. It is far better from any other Internet Service available for home users especially for those who are not living in metro cities. If you want to ask anything else please ask through your comments .
