+1 for Airtel. Close to 3 years for me too. I've heard good things about
BSNL, but I probably cannot expect a BSNL engineer to visit me within 4
hours of giving a complaint. Airtel does, and normally they appear
within the hour. It's definitely a little more expensive than BSNL, but
you can at least shout at the customer service and be taken seriously.
Not that I had to.
I had an instance when the net connection went down at 4 am, and there
was a technical guy at the other end helping me troubleshoot a DNS
problem, from Linux. Afaik, their modems normally come with both
ethernet and usb ports. You can use either.
