Default Guest House/Bed&breakfast in DELHI INDIA!

Thanks for your speedy reply, WIlliam!

I called up some hotels and guest houses in Delhi/New Delhi area, and
they would have a 512kbps internet connection. Also, I will be using
this during off-peak hours - let's say from 6:00 PM - 3:00 AM IST.

From your perspective, is a 256kbps connection fast enough for me to
be able to use my Vonage VOIP? If 256kbps is good, than 512kbps is,
for sure, really good. I have a 5Mbps connection, and it's perfectly
good.

Thanks for your time.


Skype works fine.

Indian ADSL links are prone to being dropped and taking a couple of minutes
to log back on and don't believe anyone who tells you they get consistent
speeds from a domestic ADSL link in India, they don't.

There will be a 'load shedding' some time on most evenings because that's
when people go home and switch on their A/C system.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.
Barbeques on fire by the chalets past the castle headland
I watched the gift shops glitter in the darkness off the Newborough gate
All these moments will be lost in time, like icecream on the beach
Time for tea.

Where can I find information on a guest house/paying guest/B&B/sublet
for 2-4 weeks in New Delhi/Delhi (location is very flexible, provided
that it's close to Delhi), with a A FAST
AND RELIABLE INTERNET CONNECTION IS CRITICALLY IMPORTANT FOR ME. I've
tried to find this information on the NET, but without much success.


Delhi will not provide a fast reliable home Internet service because it
suffers from 'load shedding' and the power is off about 4 hours in 24 at
reasonably random, but usually known to the locals, times throughout the
day everywhere that doesn't have its own generator.


Jeez- they still have that problem? It was like that in the 80s. I'd
naively assumed that with the improvement in the economy etc., that
those kinds of infrasructure things would be sorted by now...


Not yet.

Bombay (only the island, from spring this year the Bombay suburbs also
suffer load shedding) remains the only place in the country with 24 hour
power.

The government wants to buy a shed load of nuclear reactors from the
Russians and the French but can't, for internal political reasons, clinch
the nuclear deal with the US to make it happen.

Not being cold.

I'm retired.


There is Spain of course! Closer to home.

I know what India is like, and I have no doubt that it could get into
your blood, but I was wondering what your history with the place is.


Well for a start my wife is Indian and owns a couple of houses here, which
makes things easy.

She also speaks a collection of the local languages, which makes things
even easier, and I prefer the food (and the people) to Spanish, plus most
people I come into contact with speak some English, and most speak good
idiomatic English.

What else, I like the place, it's fun, everything is dead cheap, the
place is full of interesting characters and Bombay especially has an
atmosphere (and a smell) that no other city I've ever been to has.

The troopship "Queen of Bermuda" carried us from Southampton
to India in 1945.
The Bombay odour became apparent days before
we got to the Gateway of India, and the 'Welcome to Bombay, but
Mum's the word' sign.

Aha! So that's why it's Mumbai now? :-)

Thanks for an honest answer, and I hope my wife doesn't see this
message, coz she'll want to move there straight away!

N.B. I'm sure there are down sides, like filth, disease and ****.

**** and disease are only about in Summer and the monsoon period.

Dirt and beggars are something you learn to live with.

Best times are November to mid March.

I hate to tell you this because your wife may read it but my sister reckons
that if she spends a day in the beauty parlour, buys a dozen made to
measure outfits and half a dozen pairs of shoes and handbags she makes back
the cost of her air fare and a week in a medium priced hotel.

My wife just reckons that the UK is unreasonably expensive for everything
except make-up and chocolate...
