I am writing this entry from my notebook connected to the internet using the Reliance Rconnect service. On Dialup in India it is possible to get a range of 14 kbps to 56 kpbs. Currenlty I am enjoying a rate of 115 Kpbs at Re 0.40 pm approx 1 cent pm. Reliance uses the CDMA2000 technology for its network and the phone is connected to my notebook via the USB port. It has no roaming charges and the rate of data access is the same in any city with coverage in over 100 towns. I save a lot of money especially compared to dialing up from 5-star hotel rooms where the rates are around Re 7 per minute about 17 times more expensive compared to Rconnect. Now I can synchronize my email from anywhere in India at the same price. A real value, since I spend time in about 3 cities every week. A refreshing sense of freedom and enjoying every bit of it.
