BSNL EvDO on Linux is quite easy now

The ZTE AC8700 modem provided by BSNL for EvDO connections is supported pretty well by most recent Linux distributions including Fedora and Ubuntu. So if you find any complicated instructions to configure this device, I would recommend you to ignore them. This includes my previous posts on this issue as well. Just use the network manager that comes with your distribution and configuration is pretty plain and straightforward. No messing with command line scripts etc.
