Upgraded to Reliance Netconnect Broadband+

From my slow speed Reliance Netconnect, which was used as a backup for the Hathway broadband connections at home and office, I upgraded to Reliance Netconnect Broadband+ last week. This was after Hathway went down because of issues with politically advantaged competitor.

Considering that it I have replaced 3 internet connections with one (2 Hathway and 1 Reliance old-gen wireless modem), this works out to be cheaper (even when ignoring the discounted rates applicable for the first year) for my requirements. But, now I don’t have a backup service provider.

Short Review ::

PLUS : There were no installation issues with the current device (unlike my previous Reliance modem) and has a faster startup & good connection speeds.

MINUS : Reliance wants me to visit their website (rcom.co.in) every time I connect the modem – irritating behavior. And, unlike previous versions, it is not possible to make calls or send SMS using this modem.
