Travelog # 33 - Reliable Connectivity

When we started for this vacation I was bit worried about internet connectivity from the Tier-II / III towns (Darjeeling, Kalimpong & Gangtok) with my Reliance data card. But, I am pleasantly surprised and glad to report that my data card working exceedingly well from all the towns I have been in the past week.

I am now near Gangtok and able to post and upload reliably with my Reliance data card. This is simply wonderful and something I didn't quite expect.

ps: It's a different story as to why I want connectivity and lug my laptop around on a vacation. That's the question my daughter asked me and I didn't have an answer to.


  1. I thought R is more outspoken and I am delightfully surprised the question came from our princess M.

    Daddy man, you are in trouble.


  2. wow! I remember the other question on whether her mom can track you from home with the help of Garmin!! Very smart kids!


  3. Hi Ram,

    How was Reliance data card service in Siliguri and surrounding areas. I will be visiting this place for 10 - 12 days and carrying a Data card from reliance , should I retain it or look for another service provider . Pls suggest.

    Kind Rgds

    I used it Darjeeling, Kalimpong & Gangtok and Bagdodara.. It worked like a champ..

    Siliguri is a bigger town and the Reliance data card should work well there also..

    So the net is I would keep it..
