First of all thank you all for responding.

They provide Cable Modem (Motorola Surfboard HB5200, I think)
The outout of Cable modem connects to your LAN card.

But that may not be helpful if it is Technology limitation. ADSL does have
distance limit.
BSNL folks informed me that they are going to open/start new exchange in my
area in next three months (june/July)
I don't want to depend on their word anymore. Plus they didn't say which
year :)
So for now, I don't want to wait anymore and try other options.
Iqara seemed to be most popular in my area.

Will they really co-operate unless they know you personally/professionally ?
irrespective of that, it might be helpful anyway.

I guess it goes without saying that in case I'm not able to get it working
myself, I'll ask help from PLUG.
That might be my best bait anyway.
