I have BSNL 2nd bfone (permanent telephone line with flat rate of Rs.
500 per month, regardless of no. of hrs. usage). With the free
surfing hours provided by the leading ISPs, you could download almost
3 GB per month just by spending Rs. 500 per month.
I did a stage3 install. After that it may not take more than 2 nights
for a world update. Excluding OpenOffice, it may take a day to
My journey ....

I'm currently a dial-up user and am plannning to get a BSNL DIAS
connection. I'm also very keen to move to Gentoo. I was just wondering
if there were any users of Gentoo on a similar data-restricted
connection. How much data is used up during a stage 1 install containing
Gnome 2.6 and a few other basic stuff like evolution...
Woudl it be recommended that I do a stage 3 and then just update? How
much data transfer would that take? The reason im taking broadband is so
that i can emerge stuff.
