    Hi,

    I would like to know if its possible to get a BSNL 3G sim from U.P & use it in Delhi with a datacard for 3G Internet ?
    i.e I hope there are no data roaming charges when it uses MTNL's 3G network in Delhi?

    From what i can understand from the BSNL site; this doesnt seem to be possible.
    Just like the voice roaming charges, there will be Data roaming charges.

    Any answers, anyone?

    There are no data roaming charges. I use a bsnl 3G sim bought from Lucknow in Delhi in my ipad.

    but if you are using it in NOida; then you are still on BSNL network..

    have you tested in delhi?

    also, which unlimited plan is available on BSNL 3G?

    What are the average speeds which you guys are getting over 3G in NCR.

    You can use your usual 3G plans on MTNL roaming, unless your plan specifically states that roaming will be charged. I am using BSNL Blackberry service in Noida/Delhi and using 3G and I am not being charge for anything even if I am in roaming all the time.

    I am in Delhi, Laskhmi Nagar - I had BSNL 3G and when I used that for browsing speeds are pretty slow.. It was 0.28MBps and downloads were 28KBps. Looks like MTNL is the culprit :( ... can anyone please confirm what speeds they are getting in these areas ??
