Hi! please give me a idea. I have a plan to buy 3G Connection. Is bsnl good? I have a 3G enabled phone. But I have airtel for voice calls. I am using internet daily 1 to 2 hours in my laptop.

Can I buy 3g data card for this. Or Can I buy bsnl prepaid connection and enable 3G? Is data card is a must for browsing on laptops? What about the speed?

@Shyam
my opinion is, bsnl is not excellent. but good.

for your one to two hr usage you dont need bsnl 3G data usb card. Buy a bsnl simcard (postpaid or prepaid connection) and enable 3g data plan.

browse web through mobile wherever you go. if you want pc / laptop to use 3G connect phone to PC through phone cable or bluetoorth. you can easily browse net from PC.

Buy bsnl 3G data usb card only for the dedeicated/exclusive use in PC/Laptop. If you have 3G enabled phone, you can connect to 3G from your laptop through your mobile.

DEAR BSNL IS GOOD ENOUGH TO B USED ON UR PHONE BUT THR IS NO NEED TO ACTIVATE ANY 3G PLANS
SELCT THE UTMS MODE ON UR PHONE ACTIVATE THE 2G PACK THAT IS OF 98 RS 3GB FEE
THEN WHEN U CONNECT THE NET IT WILL SHOW 3.5 OR 3G AND THE SPEED IS REALY NICE HARDLY ONE TO ONE ND HALF MINUTE TO DOWNLOAD A 4 MB SONG

SO DONT GO FOR 3G PLANS JUST CHANGE THE NETWRK , RECHARGE WITH 2G ND G0 G0 G0 ...

BSNL really sucks! there is no proper tariff plans. Moreover browsing speed also not satisfying. so better to chose Tata photon plus or reliance.
