7+ Best high speed data card dongles in India

Data card popularity has gained momentum in India with many people wanting high speed data card during mobility.  I recently searching for a high speed dongle to download 40GB game. In my personal experience, most data cards work on 3g networks can reach maximum speed of 1 mbps and burst speed of 4 mbps. It took like 5 days for me to download this much data. My broadband BSNL DSL is way faster than all of these dongle cards, where speeds was consistently about 4mbps (not burst).

You should know how to spot download speed correctly when using a data card. The download speed often shown as Kilobytes (KBps) vs Kilobits (Kbps). Notice the small b in kilobits and capital B in Kilobytes.

1 Kbps –  Kilo bits per second

1 KBps – Kilo bytes per second ( equals 8 x Kbps)

1 Mbps equals approx 122.1 KBps

If you see 1 Mbps, that means it is calculated in bits.

Network congestion is a very important factor before you buy any data card. You should opt for least congested network provider (eg. bsnl, tata) to get maximum download speeds at night. Also you should live near a signal tower to boost the speeds.

Lets us take a look on some of the best data cards available in India.
