I have not yet been out of Pune since I got this thing. So I am not sure.
Considering that Reliance and Indicom services work throughout India, this
should work too (but this needs to be confirmed). However, this device is
CDMA based. I am not sure what is the availability of BSNL's CDMA network
throughout India.

At my home, sometimes it is able to detect the network, sometimes not. This
is strange. The only explanation I am able to think of is that their service
must be down when the network is not detected. I heard from some other
people that right now they are in test phase and they have not started a
full rollout. I got a call from BSNL too few days back asking for my
experiences with the device. I shared the same feedback with them.

Unlimited bandwidth: 550/=
Modem device on rental basis: 200/=
Total: 750/=

Hope that helps.

Thanks,
Amitabh
