    Hello brother. I tried many times but it didn’t work. I asked many friends and they said they filled Authentication type as PAP or CHAP and also APN Type as Internet. And I tried these all these but nothing happened. If there are other ways to use the 3G free internet?

      What is your mobile device?
      If you did as the same as the setting above,it is correct and you need only wait for some time to work(specially for huawei device).
      Also you have to make data connection ON and then wait for some time.

      The setting under APN is the same for any mobile device. But the settings before APN may vary from device to device.

      It was working about two weeks. But currently, it is not working. It needs to change another proxy and once we found that proxy, we will make it available for you.
