Yo, this is not that much of a thread to get to know each other than a thread to help me out! :tem

I'm writing a work in university and it concerns Internet connection and it's costs. I'd like to know what kind of connection do you have and, if it's not a secret, how much does it cost per month.
If you feel too shy to reveal that info in this thread (there are all kinds of people :hinata ) you could PM me to tell that.

Thanks and have fun! :grin

Re: What Internet connection do you have?

I have DSL. And it costs about $56 a month.

We used to have a cable connection but since we are in an apartment complex it was difficult since all the other apartments in the building were feeding off of the same line, and we needed faster download times than what we were getting.

Re: What Internet connection do you have?

I also use DSL and the monthly bill is around the same as Tamerlane's when converted to US dollars. My mom is thinking of switching to another provider that boasts cheaper rates.

Re: What Internet connection do you have?

i have a 1MB connection and i pay £16 english pounds with no limits. but there are cheaper once.
UK's internet is getting cheaper and faster each month, and i believe BT (British telecoms, most of the phone lines in england belong to them, but they sale the rights to use their lines to many other companies to boost competition) are introducing faster rates for all in a few months time. i think we will get a boost upto 8mb for the same price in a years time. or so they say in the papers.

Re: What Internet connection do you have?

I'm using DSL and it costs me...erm...my parents somwhwere around well, I don't know, but it costs my mom alot.

But the thing is, it's still slow. Someone's told em that connections in America are even much more faster compared to our eensy weensy DSL here.

Proof of that will be, one chapter takes at least 15 minutes for me to download. And I've tried uploading one chapter once to MH's FTP, and it took me more than an hour to upload at least 18%.

I let Ghost (Khal) finish it from there and it only took him 15 minutes. =/

I HATE IT.

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.

Re: What Internet connection do you have?

Dial-up 50.6Kbps = $43 :s
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 :p

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.
