When I look at the current plans of 3G data plans introduced by different Operators, it is very confusing for me to select one of them.
Which is the best Wireless internet service provider which is affordable at the same time, is quite tough to answer. The best thing to do at this point of time is to buy an unlocked UMTS/EDGE stick in which you can use any SIM for using the internet.
Currently there is not unlimited 3G data plan is available in the market, but as all the Mobile operators have launched 3G services across every circle, we are going to see a healthy competition in the market and this war of prices will finally be in favor of the customer.
Unlocked 3G sticks by MicroMax, iBall, Irvine and many others are available in Open market for a price between Rs1500 to Rs2000.
I recently bought an unlocked 3G stick by Irvine for Rs1700 and tried it with Airtel Mobile office and BSNL 3G internet.
I was not getting full network where I was staying but Still still managed to get a speed of around 400kbps at different times of the day.
Currently, only BSNL and MTNL are the only networks which are offering nice plans and have got more coverage throughout India, and by using an unlocked 3G stick, I can simply switch over to another service provider if they offer better plans which suits my requirement, without the need of buying another 3G stick.
And if you are worried of the costly 3G plans, you always have an option to use GPRS Internet which mostly all the Operators are offering for Less than Rs100 per month.
