    Re: What Internet connection do you have?

    hmm i've got SBC (south western bell) DSL for home computer use, but my dad uses a T1 cable (fast as HELL) when he works at home (company provided). the DSL costs roughly 45$ a month (unlimited usage and specialized e-mail, but the email isnt that great). i kno that T1 lines are reallly really hard to get (usually provided to companies) and really expensive so....

    Re: What Internet connection do you have?

    Thanks to everyone sharing the info. Keep it up.

    I forgot to be polite and didn't tell my data at first. I'll make it up now.
    Well I have a modifiable DSL, constant speed d/u 512/256, plus turbo modes that boost the speed tenfold.
    Cost are as low as approx. 20$ per month (12 Ls). Mainly because it's the main telephone company's service.

    Dial-up 50.6Kbps = $43
    For refference, standard monthly payment is around $240.

    The worst thing is that starting with next month telephone will be 100% more expensive. I really hope that I'll have 128Kbps cable internet in next 2 months and then 256Kbps ADSL until the end of the year.

    Re: What Internet connection do you have?

    Pfff. let me think...

    I pay a lot (or: my parents) for my ADSL internet connection, about €50 per month. 25 for the phone company and 25 for the provider

    For a connection WITHOUT datalimit (we have that here), so I can d/l as much as I like (I d/l about 10-40 GB per month, most of it are games and movies).
    Speed: well, dunno exaclty but if I d/l the average speed is about 650 kb p/s.

    Well, I gonna check my current speed if I'm at home, currently posting on school, from THEIR wireless network

    Oh yeah, also have wireless at home, but I use a cable to connect my desktop to internet and my notebook has a wireless card in it. NOw I think of it, the speed of my modem/router at home is about 100 mb p/s (my modem can handle a speed of 100 mb p/s, but my internetspeed should be around 54 mb p/s).

    Well, I hope this will help you... I'll check at home what the exact specs are.

    Re: What Internet connection do you have?

    2000/128 Kb (notice it's a bit, not byte) costs about 60$ That's of course very expensive, but it's only because I live in a small town and cheap ISP only provide their services for bigger cities and such.

    If I lived about 50 Km away from my current home, it'd be about 20$ for 10/10 mbit :S Unfortunately moving is too troublesome.

    24mbit download 1mbit upload, costs me about.. o.O $56

    so my max download rate is about 2,4 mbit p/s....but but....soon the "fiber ranged zone" will increase which means we will get free 100mbit upgrade.

    I'm in the Dominican Republic and I have DSL.

    My Line is 384 down/ 256 Up

    I pay around $28 bucks a month (when converted to US Dollars)

    IF I want the highest speed around (1.5 Down/ 768 Up), I'd have to pay around $100.

    Now, there goes to show you how in third world countries, everything is cheap...considering most people get paid around $200 - $400 a month.....

    Re: What Internet connection do you have?


    Im in Australia [where our internet service is terrible relative to our GDP]

    Our household is on a 1500/256kbit ADSL connection. It costs $70AU/month [1.00AUD ~0.76 US atm] with a 25GB [the isp counts a gigabyte as 1000MB] cap, thereafter the conneciton is throttled to 64/64kbit [as it is at the moment]. Unlimited plans are outrageously expensive, if available at all.

    Prices, speed and service would be better in a metropolitan area, but we are located in a 'regional' area, as classified by our telephone exchange.
