BSNL CDMA data modem review


From long time i used to search for the internet connection which i could use both in ma hostel(our hostel has no internet connection damn) as well as in ma home . I knew abt the reliance and tata wireless usb modems but then they were very expensive in terms of modem costs and tariffs. One day i found something in the news paper and with no time i went to enquire abt and this time i found BSNL wireless usb modem (ec-325). I found out all the details of it and found it the best buy .The next day i bought the modem . I used it for abt 3 months and thought of reviewing for u people . so here i'm reviewing it .

So here r the pictures of the device .




First we shall talk abt the device .

Box Contents:

HUAWEI EC325 CDMA Data Modem.

CD ROM:client software,driver,instruction

User manual

Ear phone

Technical Specifications :

Network Interface:CDMA2000 1X RTT, compatible with IS-95 A/B.

Computer Interface:Standard USB .

Antenna:Internal antenna

Data rate (theoretical):Up to 153.6kbps

Voice Service and SMS capability(though we should again activate using a sim)

Phone book (again same case as above )

Supports ROMSIM/R-UIM card.

Compatible with : windows 2000/vista/xp.

Size:84mm(D),42mm(W),12mm(H).

Network Specifications:

Protocol:CDMA2000 1X RTT

Working frequency:824MHz_849MHz/869Mhz_894MHz(Uplink/Downlink)
MAX.Tx Power:>23db
Receiver Sensitivity :more than 104dbm

Starting Up:

Well the software installation is pretty straight forward and hassle free.The ports has to be initialized first (normally they'll vl be initialized ) using a tool which vl given by the bsnl people .After installing the software enter the user name and password provided by the operator .To enter go to SETTINGS>NETWORK CONNECTION SETTINGS enter thre.After that connect the modem and the drivers vl be installed automatically when u connect .After that click on huawei icon on desktop and click on connection and ur done with the connection . Here r few screen shots .





Speed:


The specified speed is 153.6kbps as specified above,but the actual speed is much lower than this . Speed varies constantly , very sluggish sometimes (1/10 times).For normal browsing and the for some small downloads there is no problems at all . But the torrent downloads r too sluggish

Here r various speeds.



Plan details :


Here is the best part of it.Plan charges r 250 per month+taxes. with no upload or download limits .


regards ............
