I have make some search on our local provider but there is many advantage and disadvantage with everyone, so am turning to you friends so that I can find my way, of course some of our member are very good in this matter, there is a lot of info on Avinash Meetoo web but I want to have this topic on this forum also, well friends hope I will get much info for me and for other Mauritian blogger also!!

Waiting for Reply quickly cause I can't wait to have my ADSL bounce BYE Take care!!

/me prepares himself for a quick run to avoid lapidation

err... how to say this, (ready?)
damn, i can't get myself to say it! (set!)
............its the monopolistic ISP of course Ritesh,
its name begins with an "o" and finishes with a "range" (go!!! Razz)

------------>[] (je suis deja dehors xD)

non mais serieusement, we are locked in with orange, their prices, their FUP, and whatever else they decide since they are in a position of power until another isp (emtel?) dares to break the status quo by aquiring the means to provide internet access independantly of z'orange... till then i guess orange still remains the best deal we have got here in MU despite all its flaws...

1st thing... there is no best internet provider. It's more likely who's the least worst! Razz

Nomad -> 64k-128k-512k
Pros: Portable
Cons: Weather-dependent, has a login service, no Customer Care (makes u mad), you never get the connection you pay for...

Emtel -> 384k+ (up to 1.8Mbps)
Pros: Portable, most reliable connection in Mauritius.
Cons: Modem's expensive & capped tariffs.
(more here)

MTML
-> 144k+ (up to 2.4Mbps)
Pros: Portable, unlimited extreme high-speed!
Cons: Modem's expensive, high-speed coverage only in Plaines Wilhems & Port Louis, buggy coverage.
(more here)

Orange ADSL ->128k-256k-512k-1Mbps
Pros: Quite reliable, relatively cheap (depends on your budget)
Cons: Capped FUP, high traffic load at peak times, 2 weeks wait time for installation, not portable,
(more here)

So here you are... make your choice... Smile

When you subscribe to Orange, they give you a free modem or the livebox (for my.t)

Good Morning..Mauritius!!......Hope everyone have enjoy a nice weekend,...and hope its not a hard Monday scratch friends!!
Well for me MY-T is a good one, cause its not only the Internet, You have the digital TV and the phone line with international roaming like the SEZAM prepaid card and tariff is not so bad for a 256 kbps and unlimited download @ 750rs + vAT!! But its not wireless Sad !!

Ok, livebox is ok then. You usually get everything through it. Its the most common way of subscribing here too.

traffic is all but unlimited Smile for myT 256k if i remember correctly (am not really sure, carrot will be able to confirm) i think you have about 3gb/month before they throttle your bandwidth Smile
but i agree though, that's one of the best compromises you have here Very Happy

IMO it's a low-cost contraption of a PC. & it's not even a PC - more like a modem with addons! Razz

More info about NetPC here:
http://www.novatium.com/novanetpc.htm

It does not carry the burden of the CPU, software, hard disc, and applications – all these elements reside in the central server at the administrator’s end.
That should be enough to make anyone run away as fast as they can... Smile

OK, I have regular PC at home with everything in it, if I connect the two device by network cable via the ETHERNET PORT, do the Net PC will recognise my Regular PC on a network system?? I will use the NET PC for updating my blog, downloads and to keep in touch with MBB FORUM and all the data can copy and paste on my regular PC!! Very Happy
