Top 10 Reasons to Switch to WiMax

Why WiMAX ??
It’s tough for regular people to keep track of all of their options when it comes to technology. However, in the rush of all the new gadgets and services available, there are some that are definitely worth the hype. One of the latest to come onto the market, WiMax, actually offers the chance to enjoy wireless without a bunch of troubles or stipulations. While it might seem that every new product is promising to change your life, in this case, that sort of claim might be true. Here are the top 10 reasons that switching now will make you a forward-thinker, not a sucker.

10. No configuring networks
. When you set up wireless at home, you usually have to type information into your computer so that the network is recognized, store the password, and then you’re good to go. Getting on a network in a coffeeshop or at work? Repeat the steps all over again. Since WiMax works more like a cell phone, connecting automatically, you don’t have to spend time doing all of that.

07. A faster network. Just like cell phone companies across the country, you’ll be on board with 4G, the absolute fastest network in existence. This means that transferring huge files, streaming video content, and even video chatting can be accomplished with a complete lack of interruption.

06. A reasonable price. When you add up what you actually end up paying for wireless--like fees in airports and coffeeshops, and then include your monthly bill, things can get a little expensive. This way, no matter where you are, your wireless charge is going to come from the same place--and stay the same flat rate.

05. Forward-thinking. This is a type of technology that actually is looking towards the future rather than focusing on a new way of packaging something old. With WiMax, there is potential to expand beyond the current realms of the internet, meaning that if you get on board now, you’ll be poised and ready for the next step.

04. Global implications. Just like cell phone companies are looking towards networks that stretch across oceans, the potential is in place here for the wireless network in place to go beyond the borders of the States.

03. A reliable connection. Because the network in place uses towers not unlike cell phone towers, you can count on your WiMax connection delivering practically anywhere in the entire country. Signals are strong, meaning your connection will be, too.

02. It makes you look smart. Whether it sounds corny or not, being on the forefront of technology is definitely an asset for anyone, especially people who are trying to solidify their place in the world of new business. Being able to get online anywhere while others are struggling always makes you look ahead of the game.

01. It just works better. Whether it’s handling the transfer of huge amounts of data, connecting without needing any sort of special programming, or adopting new technologies designed to innovate, switching to WiMax means a way of getting online that you can actually depend on as an internet user.

3G to 4G WiMAX

Don’t Settle for 3G When You Could Have 4G Coverage
3G technology was no doubt the best way to stay connected to the web all over your city…when you got it. Now, you’re complaining of slow service and the fact that your own apartment is a dead zone. Fortunately, there is a better way to use the web all over your city. Whether you’re working, studying, or playing, the 4G network provides the fast, reliable coverage you need to tackle your chaotic days. Don’t settle for 3G coverage when you could be working with 4G instead.

Log on in the park, gym, even on public transportation with the 4G network. You can work all day, no matter where you are, with a fast, reliable mobile broadband connection. You’ll have the ability to video chat from your business meeting across town, check e-mails before your Anatomy class, and find the best sushi restaurant downtown for your Saturday night plans. Additionally, you can subscribe to 4G service in your home. This eliminates the need for a singular computer room and enables your family to connect to the Internet
regardless of where they are in the home. Log on from the backyard, basement, or bedroom with 4G mobile broadband.

The 3G network actually uses a lesser WiMax technology than 4G, meaning it can’t deliver the same quality service. WiMax is the technology utilized in transmitting signals between your PDA or laptop to the web. 4G uses the most advanced WiMax technology currently available for wireless Internet coverage. With 4G coverage, you are guaranteed the best possible service with the latest WiMax technology.

While 3G can manage to download at relative fast speeds most of the time, 4G wireless Internet is far superior. You can download at speeds of up to 3-6 Mbps with spurts of up to 10 Mbps. In fact, the 4G network is actually four times faster than 3G, allowing you to get more done on your PDA or laptop in a shorter amount of time.

4G network coverage also provides a more reliable connection than 3G. Oftentimes, 3G users complain of weak signals or dead zones while they’re in the midst of city center, at the museum, or in a movie theater. The reason you subscribe to mobile broadband in the first place is to have a connection all over the city. However, 3G can’t always provide it. With a 4G wireless subscription, you’re more than covered as soon as you step out of your apartment or home each day.

Because 4G wireless Internet uses the most advanced version of WiMax technology available, it can provide far superior service than the 3G network. As a 4G subscriber, you can depend on a fast, reliable connection no matter where you are in the city, meaning no more slow downloads or dead zones like you experience with 3G. Instead, you can video chat in the back of a cab, download music
in the park, or complete online training programs during lunch. Subscribe to a wireless Internet that is as mobile as you are—depend on 4G network coverage.

BSNL WiMAX 4G Users Reviews

Reviews Area
M sreedhosh:I had booked for a USB Dongle for Rs.2800 + tax & etc = Rs. 2,912, BSNL has found that the Dongle feasibility for coverage is constraint to 15 mts. Since my house is off limits of that given 15 mts I had to opt for the Indoor WiMax CPE (Customer Premises Equipment). You can access this anywhere and anytime. The cost is Rs. 4,000/- . Monthly payment for both (Dongle & IW CPE) for unlimited usage is Rs. 1,000/- This is 512 kbps instruments.

As this is my 4th day of usage of this instrument on my online jobs. To check out the speed & coverage capabilities I had used it to do some download & upload of files above 2.12 GB to 19 GB files on Torrent sites & on my job networks.

The Result is as follows:-

I think there should be a 6 Green lighted (Normal) or Blue lighted bars (3G) should be there indicating the coverage strength but from the time installed I have only noticed 5 Bars just like mobile signal strength.

With 5 Bars & 2/3 Bars of signal strength (9:00am to 6:00pm):

The Speed as in transfer rate with my 512 kbps bandwidth (but shows the speed of 1682 kbps Download & 300 to 600 kbps upload, occasionally on certain servers while working on their site) can vary according to the sites & software’s we download to install for our jobs;
The speed may come to even the lowest of transfer rate 9 kbps to 30 kbps (I was pulling my hair at that time to see myself in a trial & error mode for BSNL)

With 5 Bars (Occasionally) & 2/3 Bars (Regularly) of signal strength (6:00pm to 4:45am):

As evening and night approached I saw the difference in Download & upload speed to be around 61 kbps to almost 464 kbps mostly with 2 or 3 bars of signal strength. Awesome from Our own BSNL. At least I get the work done in 4 or 6 hrs now than the 2 days or odd before with 20 to 40 kbps transfer rate/ packet rate / data transfer.

There is a consistency of 110 to 259 kbps transfer rate.

I have heard from a Business person who has taken a 1Mbps bandwidth is enjoying the speed & facilities. He & his wife are going for the high range ones as soon as they are launched the 8Mbps products but ordinaries like us may not be able to afford that too expensive instruments & monthly pay is also too high.

(Business UL 15000 Plus 2Mbps, 8Mbps Business 15000 with a cap of 125 GB: Home UL 1350 Plus 512 Kbps-affordable)

This I say only because I had it tested these days only on the difficult sites & from networked servers of Islands & inner lands where the inconsistency in coverage & signal strength is very drastic.

I thought I should appreciate the government firm with all our drawbacks & the drawbacks we create around us BSNL is trying to mend their flaws & come up with good & cheap services which could be affordable along with some benefits like unlimited usage without any hidden fair usage limits.

As for Technical Support they have been on call assistance every time I have called them & given right kind of advices & taken time to come to my place & show me why do they say; why some facilities are good or bad. The technical guys whom I have called spoke in understandable English & they can understand you too. They also can understand Hindi & return the favor in broken Hindi & English support.

Let me help you all by giving certain People to contact for BSNL WiMax truly an unlimited offer with awesome speed.

These are some of the BSNL members who make our Government firm BSNL a true service provider. They go out of their way to make the customer comfortable with what our country (India) has to offer in the best of the interest of the citizens & foreigners alike; most welcome to our facilities with all our simple ways (since we are after all an upcoming country in many ways with all resources to exploit for our own better existence.)
