Sir, i want Railwire broadband connection. my residence is in Srirangam malur road Lakshmi nagar near Srirangam EB office. I want wireless Wifi Based on Wimax 1 MBPS 899. my no is 9498161100.


I am from a rural area and i already contacted BSNL they said BSNL service is not available in my village, how do i check if Railwire available


First 3 months, u are the king
After that, HIGH PACKETLOSS of Data, u cant download big files.. It gets cortupt. Maybe their trick to stop downloading... Always disconnects... Shit customer care after 3 months... Dont think of online games or video chatting...if u are lucky, its ok... But the line connections they are are so unstable. Every day repair.. Dont take this guyz... Bsnl far better.. Trust me


Please don go for railwire.speed is good but the local TV cable operators who handle this are harrasing the customers by disconnecting often to show their power and also asking 3000rps for installation and further u have pay seperately for the tarrif plan.In one month 10 to 15 times they disconnect and u have to call and beg for the connection. Railway ministry is fully responsible for this cheap behavior. They must implement seperate office for this than handing over it to local bullies.


Could you pl share this letter for rebate to railway employees. This is wireless Wifi Based on Wimax 1 MBPS 499 & 2 MBPS 899 unlimited for railway employee unfortunately LSP & Some where Railtel not taking interest to expand it. It is very good service for Common man & employee too.Pl give a link of letter


I have contacted them regarding a new connection, but haven't got any call from them till now. Hope they are available and provide good service.


It would be great if they say what are all the areas they cover. I live in OMR, Chennai. I can make use of this service if they are available.


Sir, I am working in Railways at Visakhapatnam, I received circular from Shri S.K.Goel, Exe.Dir./Southern Region in that it is written discount for rly employees. my address is plot no.206 Rail Vihar, Chinamushidivada, VUDA Colony, Sujathanagar Post, Visakhapatnam-530 051. whether it is wired or wireless. when are you going to give connection. please treat this as my application. please e-mail me.
thank you


Guys, Railnet Broadband collects Deposit 2000+Plan Charges( if 1250 Rs)+Installation Costs
for providing Connections. and they didn't give or rent a Router for their Connection. we have to
buy a router @ cost of 1750 Approx. if you reside @ few kilometers away from their service point
you have to Install Special Antenna which costs around 7000 additionally. So this must be PIA.
But some other Leading Service Provider, asks Rs 500 only as deposit and no installation and Hidden costs
also they provide free router as a promotional offer in some occasions.

Think it and make sure you are comfortable for all these, then go for new connection.

This is my suggestion based on real Experience.
