I went to a Tata indicom shop.
I asked for a demo.
Tried with ubuntu and wvdial.
connected easily.

But the speed is very less.
It remembered those dial-up days.

It was very slow. Even cant get gmail.

I never worked on wireless.
Is it will be like this?

They said that we cant compare with broadband.

How about relience? or any other service provider?

How to check what bandwidth we get in wireless?
