http://www.bsnl.co.in/service/internet_tariff_dias.htm

BSNL has decided that each Telecom Circle will select one city and try DIAS as a pilot project providing for a minimum of 120 subscribers per city.

Tariff for the DIAS will be as detailed below:

Plans Available Plan-IPlan-IIPlan-III
Activation Charges (non refundable) Rs. 2000/- Rs.3000/- Rs.3000/-
Security Deposit Nil Nil Nil
Monthly Rental Per user Rs.850/-Rs.1800/- Rs. 5500/-
Free Usages per month 0.5 GB 1.5 GB Unlimited
Additional Usages charges/100 Mb or part per month thereof Rs.120/- Rs.100/- N.A


The DIAS services shall be offered to the PSTN subscribers of BSNL, on the same copper pair as is being used for their DELs at present.

In case of disconnection of BSNL PSTN connection this DIAS connection is also to be surrendered. In case of disconnection of telephone for non-payment etc., DIAS facility should also be disconnected.

This tariff includes internet usage charges. The subscriber need not pay any additional amount for (i) PSTN Dialup Access for internet
(ii) Port charges for Internet Leased Line.

This tariff is for connection of subscribers to Internet nodes of BSNL.

Whereever it is not technically feasible to measure the usage, the present tariff will remain applicable. However, whenever it will be technically possible to apply usages based tariff, subscribers of DIAS should be intimated well in time by giving time period of one month for switchover from existing tariff to the tariff based on usage as above.

This tariff will be reviewed after six months.

Additional Notes from Manipur-Diaspora@yahoogroups.com discussion

4 years on Dial Up and now Freeeeeeedom !! :-) Thats the first and foremost point for me . I have been using the Internet since the time there was Lynx browsers and Shell Accounts. As the days went by , i made more and more friends all around the net using first Email , then chat rooms and then Messengers and after that Forums and messageboard. I knew that every advancement we made with having VSNL as our ISP , we were still way behind my friends over the internet. They were already using Webcams, downloading CD's , sharing via Napster and Kazaa and Listening to music via Shoutcast network and watching CNN in Real Media player . And here we were double clicking on the Shortcut to My Connection icon:( And just using / getting a slow connection was not the pain enough , there was the very much true-to-life regularly increasing telephone bill. In the past year or two , my phone bill has seen a regular escalation from Rs.4000 to Rs.6000 and to Rs.9000. But now with BSNL's DIAS , at last I am free to do what i want at my own luxury . I mention luxury , not just because of the speed or connectivity but also of the luxury of time . It's 24 hours unlimited , and hence I am not forced to stay up till 4 in the nite as the traffic is less then . I can watch my favourite programmes and still download stuff.

However , my using the term ''unlimited'' is not fully correct, as I am limited according to the plan I choose. BSNL's DIAS comes in 3 flavours :

Rs.850 per month for 500 MB transfer
Rs.1700 per month for 1.5 GB transfer &
Rs.5500 per month for Truly Unlimited .

I used to use somewhere around 4-6 hours a day normally when I was on VSNL's Dial-Up , and thus paying around 8500+ of which I will make huge savings now . Till date , I have had seamless and uninterrupted connectivity . Before the line was setup , I had major problems getting the line setup and workorder processed; But once it was done , it has been real good. I have there Support Desk numbers which are well manned . Although I have heard complaints from some other users that ''when DIAS is UP and working it is Heaven , when it is Down , it is down .'' I have not faced any major problems .

But I am keeping an option open - to edit my review in days to come ... if I get any difference in service in days to come . Also another point i need to mention here is - DIAS maybe very very cost effective for high-users like me , a bi-monthly bill of Rs.3500 may seem very high for low users .

Support really is not the strong point . Their After-Sales Dept. do tend to work and call me up any times when everything is smoooth. But during problems, when I call back, there's only just one guy who answers all technical question . Even then , he is not sound . I had to explain to him from scratch - what is FTP , in order to complain about the FTP service not working , while browsing and chatting was ok. If for some weird reason , DSL connection fails (an it has in past few days) after 6 PM , I am sort of stuck till the next day 10 A.M as in between there is no Support personel i can ring up. :(

Pros
: Good speed and cost effective

Cons
: slow in getting setup

Purchase Price (INR)
: 850

Speed of ISP connection
: Wow - Thats god speed

Connection Reliability
: Good - Almost always connects first time

Service and Support
: Helpful


To those it might prove useful ......

We are lucky we have been selected from our region cell NE II (Nagaland, Arunachal, Manipur)for DIAS.

http://www.bsnl.co.in/service/internet_tariff_dias.htm

let me know if the service is available in Imphal now. If not when will it be ? Also some preliminary investigation needs to be done on whether the normal dial up connection is preferred for the time being.
http://www.bsnl.co.in/service/internet_tariff.htm

But important thing is to find out what happens to the monthly charges if the phone stops working which happens quite frequently in manipur.courses ..

Also can apply for the CLI acount which allows location free internet conection. So all of you can share the single internet connection as long as you coordinate the dial in times.
