I had a good experience with MTNL. The guy who came to install it at my home
in Mumbai knew about Linux. I talked to him over the phone (I work in Bangalore)
about installing on Linux (Ubuntu), he understood what I was talking about and
installed a n/w card (RTL8139-based) and my parents could use the net
connections without any issues.

This was so easy and painless. I have heard the same review from other people
in the locality. So I don't mind recommending MTNL. But YMMV
