My dear friends, I recently purchased Idea Netsetter. Believe me its speed is really awsome and 100% better then Reliance Data Cards.

I get nearly 25 KB/s speeds through this Edge enabled Usb Modem. Sometimes it goes upto 30 KB/s.

No installation problems at all. Just insert the Modem in Usb Port and it get installed itself.

It supports Vista also.

Their's a scheme going on till 30th November 2008. Just pay Rs.360/- extra and get 2 months unlimited usage free. Means you pay Rs.2490/- + Rs.360/- = Rs.2850/- and you can enjoy two months unlimited usage.

I purchased this Usb Modem under the above scheme. And now enjoying the awsome speeds of this device.

I didn't faced any issues till now with Idea Netsetter. Lets hope for the best in the future also.

I am using Idea GPRS on my edge enabled handset (Nokia 3110c) & i am somewhat satisfied by its services as it is neither too slow nor too fast. it is really helpful on the move. It is good for surfing, chat, mail but not very useful for downloading files.
I have a corporate Idea connection & i am getting a special offer for GPRS, Rs 245 rental pm for unlimited surfing.

The question i want to ask is that DO WE REALLY NEED TO BUY A USB MODEM FOR INTERNET WHEN WE CAN DO THE SAME ON AN EDGE ENABLED HANDSET ? What is the difference between the two ?

My dear Anurag, the speed of an Edge enabled handset and this Edge enable Usb Data Card can vary alot. Some handsets only have Class-6 Edge, Some has Class-8 and Some has Class10 Edge. Also the Class of GPRS makes a difference. If the Class of Edge & Gprs is lower in your handset then you will get lower speeds.

And moreover if we use our Edge enabled handsets for surfing via Bluetooth, then it consumes lots of battery and if we surf using a Data Cable then our handset's battery will be gone within a few months.

So, here it makes a difference if we use USB Modem. No Battery, No Charging. And higher Class of Edge and GPRS.

Airtel Unlimted is on 1R1T EDGE Slots, 1 Slot in Received and 1 in Transmission

Idea looks like 4R1T Slots that why this kinda speed is possible.

My dear Hetal, even sometimes I get speeds upto 30 KB/s. But as we get fluctuating speeds on data cards, the average comes to 25 KB/s.

And you are right, Rs.849/- for unlimited usage at this speeds is really good.

Kamal sirji,thanks for the wonderful review and thanks for posting ur experience,reading all this i m getting tempted to go for an idea netsetter.

My dear Pankaj, this is really a good USB Modem. Speeds are awsome.

But it is network locked.

And you even can't make Voice Calls with it. Even when you try to insert the netsetter sim in mobile handset and try to make a voice call, then you won't be able to.

Only you can send and recieve SMS's.

Now the best part of this Data Card / Usb Modem :

My dear friends, the latest model of this Usb Modem which is introduced in Mumbai recently, is 3G enabled.

Yes, that means, whenever in the future 3G introduced in India, we will get 3G speeds with this USB Modem. No need to upgrade to a newer hardware for this. Its confirmed. I myself confirmed this from the technical department of IDEA 4-5 times.

So, its better to invest in this USB Modem.

Vodafone also introduced its USB Stick which is 3G enabled. But you know they are always costly. Their 3G enabled USB Modem is priced around approx. 6000/-.

And this Netsetter from IDEA is less then the half price of Vodafone's 3G enabled USB Modem.

I'm 100% satisfied with IDEA'S Netsetter's performance.

Just hope to see airtel upgrading its network ... Have 3 connections - all of them on the 199 advanced gprs plan - where I get unlimited internet usage on the move for just 199/- (its an old plan - which i got thro some jhol) ... speeds are satisfactory ... get between 17-20Kbps. Idea seems to be offering good ... but considering what I've got - the cost quotient does not sound really cool.

Cheers
