The Top 10 (unlimited data) plans in terms of value for money. Note that I am specifically excluding "nivyah" plans as there are not enough reports as to its quality and the prices seem so low that I figure they aren’t going to be following TRAI guidelines with respect to speed (the guideline says that an ISP must give you 80% of the advertised speed).

  • About Rs. 1,000 per month: "YOU Telecom: UN 775 N"
  • About Rs. 2,000 per month: "YOU Telecom: UN 1300 N"
  • About Rs. 3,000 per month: "BSNL: Home Combo ULF 2999"
  • More than Rs. 3,000 per month, "Tata Indicom: Infinity 2.5mbps Plus" is pretty good value.
