    • FUP isnt going to work.. even if you give me free, i will opt to wired dsl with unlimited downloads and fixed speed. that is cheaper than ur 3g leave 4g services. ( many private ISP out there at my location here in navi mumbai, and i am paying 12000rs for an annual plan for upto 10mbps + mumbai hub=80mbps, super low latency, and no fup, no speedcap nothing.) and ur 4g is just another showpiece.
