    Going to a vacation in India in a couple of weeks, will be there for about two weeks and as you can imagine.. I will be needing the internet.

    I will bring my laptop and my smartphone. I will be staying in Punjab and Delhi.

    Will I be able to have a 24/7 Internet connection without limits and at what speeds? I'm used to a 20 Mbps which allows me to download at around 2 Mbps.

    The 4G is still being rolled out and is available in Delhi for 'Airtel' Network and few selected cities of Punjab. So, you can expect a speed of 7.2Mbps (Around 750-900KBps) on a 3G network.

    You might want to get a dongle connection. Tata photon max gives you speed upto 9.8 Mbps.
    Check out the data usage limits though.

    If you are in Delhi enjoy free wifi on Connaught place aka Rajeev Chock.

    If you will be residing in 5 or 7 star hotels then you can enjoy free wifi connections on most places with great speed.

    Dongle will help you in this situation.I am using Tataphoton wifi dongle, the stick+connection will cost you 2000 rupees for 1st month and then you need to pay some 1200/month for 30 gb data for second month

    I will be staying in Delhi only for a few days and most of the time I will be in Punjab.

    Is 3G pretty normal in Punjab with Airtel or Dongle? Keep in mind that I will be using it with the sim card in my smartphone, not wifi.
