The telecom major “BPL” giving free WAP connections on all their cellphone plans(in India), have created a lot of buzz in the Market. People wonder how they can afford giving a free unlimited data transfer plan for WAP on all their mobile connections for free.
Also the effective download speeds(I got a maximum of 20 kbps and average of 13-15 kbps) and the connection quality of the WAP services is quite good. So, people have started trying to connect their Mobile phones to their PC’s so that they can take advantage of free Unlimited Internet Plan. But this being a WAP service it is said that we are unable to use this service on our Computers for getting free unlimited Internet. After inquiring in the BPL galleries at various places, I noticed that all the engineers present there say that the free WAP service cannot be used as free Internet for PC’s.
BUT THIS IS NOT TRUE. WE CAN USE THE FREE UNLIMITED WAP AS FREE UNLIMITED INTERNET FOR OUR COMPUTERS. Follow the procedure mentioned below:
