Long awaited “Broadband”

It was a looong wait for 7 months to get a broadband connection.. BSNL sux.. but others are still worse they dont even think of coming to rural areas unlike the cell phone boom..I browsed some forums regarding dataone new plans ending up noting some comedies & worthlessness of BSNL employees like..

1)A guy in punjab was billed 48000Rs for internet usage.. The error was the employee wrongly entered his plan as 250(no download, 400MB) but the guy used it thinking he is in plan 500.. finally he got some respite after days of fight..

2)In Kalyan Telecom Dist.. 1GB was treated as 1000MB.. but hey its correct by defns, but BSNL all across country treat it as 1024MB. Here is a eyeopener on GB & GiB

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binary_prefix

3)BSNL Dataone's website used to check account details is sick..It says use IE.. im running GNU/linux, so wheres IE.. shitty ppl couldnt even write a webapplication in jsp common to all platforms/browsers.

Btw atleast the ADSL modem is compatible with Linux.. So atlast im in linux connected to net.. GAIM is my chat client,Mozilla as Browser, Finding download managers other stuff which i miss frm windows here.. But things here are of high quality unlike in Windows..

Looking to explore the world of GNU/linux with internet..
