List of Best 3G USB Modems or Data Cards in India

Few year back we were tied with cable internet at home and office but now internet free from cable and become wireless. Wi-Fi and 3G now common way to connect with internet at anytime and anywhere. 3G is new in India and It was just launched last year with promise of good speed of downloading and uploading. USB 3G data cards available in India from last 2 or 3 year and quite popular within short time of span. Last year I personally unlocked more than 1,000 USB data cards to use other operator SIM card to save internet cost as well as better data plan. Before 3G data cards CDMA data card was very popular and still popular in some area specially no 3G zone but we can hope 3G will shortly cover all the Indian states and cities with in a year. Starting 3G plans are very costly and normal guy and computer user can’t subscribe these types of costly plans. Now internet market working with heavy competition and 3G plans price going down day by day. Most of mobile operators have their own data cards to provide internet service in their circles. I always gets many calls who need to know best data card which they should buy for better speed and value of money. In my opinion only one USB data card is best in all and comes with signal enhance feature Huawei E177 from TATA Docomo (I am using it). We can use all other operators SIM cards also after unlocking. I chose it because it comes with special built-in function (Enhanced Signal Strength with Receive Diversity (Rx)) to capture better signal in low signal zone and gives u flawless speed on laptop and computer. Other Huawei USB data cards are normal and works also fine. ZTE is another popular USB data Card manufacture and Vodafone is old customer of ZTE and now selling most of ZTE manufactured USB modems in India. Indian people likes USB data card within 3.5 Mbps and 7.2 Mbps downloading speed range because these data cards are available at low cost around 800 to 1500 Rs. You can contact your local service provider or to buy all types of USB data card. My personal online store also contains large number of USB data cards and we can ship all types USB data cards all over the world. To aware my loving reader I am going to listed some of the best 3G USB Modems in India. I hope you will enjoy this guide and read it carefully before you choose a USB data card for buying.
