Yes.Jagga,Do you expect Telecom companies to give you broadband free of cost? Rs 375 is not more than even $10.Go for it and explore the world.

Did I mentioned that I am expecting free of cost? I am just not sure that how much I can use 500MB as I am confused how can I match 500 MB with no of hours I can browse.

Get hold of a "download meter" which keeps track of how much data you
download.

If you only plan to "browse" the net, then 500MB should be enough - but if
you plan to download movies, music ect. then you'll need flatrate.

Check out Sify problems here. Despitet me taking 6 mths unlimited, my conection is not working since March 21st and Sify ppl don't have anyone to fix it. On personal meeting their tech support is scolding management for selling without infrastructure and enough tech ppl.

My experience with Data one is not so good. Go for it only if you have no other option.
