I figure this would be an excellent thread for people to find out if they are being robbed blind or not. I'll start.
$30/month here. Verizon DSL. I'm actually somewhat fond of them. How about you?
An update caused by the posts I've seen so far. My bandwidth is unlimited, Verizon never even brought up he subject when I signed up. Netflix gives me all my cable desires for a grand slam total of $8/month, no streaming issues whatsoever. I suspect Netflix pays the internet providers extra for this.
R$60 per month for 2 GB at high speed, unlimited after that but it moves verrry slowly. I have VIVO here in Brazil. This used to be expensive, but the way your economy is going (compared to ours at least) the US dollar is now so high that it is only $20 per month. It is a good deal!
$30 per month Wi-Fi unlimited at home and I use it on my mobile phone as well as laptops & tablets. Sydney Australia. Quite cheap by comparison of daily living. If you follow me on Twitter this week you would have seen me complain about paying $4 for a small broccoli and $8 for a small packet of raspberries at Coles supermarket! Or others may see it as monthly internet the same price as 1 packet of cigarettes.
I am paying 14 EUR/month for 3G wireless. Do not remember the speed, but it is fast enough. There is a monthly limit of 30GB, then the speed drops until first day of next month if I go over the limit. So, there is not enough internet to stream movies daily, but it is just enough for basic everyday needs. Anyways, I am renting a short term apartment, so it is the only solution I have for now.
Thank you for fessing up! I was beginning to think those being overcharged didn't want to say so. The more we know, the better we can defend ourselves.
Please do state those entities that are less than honest. As an example, it is my personal opinion that TWC is crooked beyond belief; and this goes way beyond internet and has to do with their billing practices in general; so glad to be rid of them; I even stated as such on the infamous websitewithnoname . com, but deleted it for karma reasons.
I pay £25 a month (c. $40) for BT business broadband, unlimited. Having a reliable broadband connection is crucial for my translation work, so I do not begrudge what I pay even though I could get another ISP for less than half the price. Over the last year or so, there was only one occasion when the service went down for a couple of hours. On another occasion, the problem I was having with the broadband constantly dropping was actually caused by the filter thingy in my phone socket. I was able to use a priority business number to report my problem and BT sent out a engineer to sort it out the day after I phoned. OK, I had to pay $300 because the cause of the problem was inside my property, not on the external line. Again, I didn't begrudge the cost (less than two days worth of average earnings for my translating activity) since I was back to full efficiency within 24 hours and thus avoiding letting down my clients. As a BT customer I also benefit from the arrangement that I can "piggy-back" off other BT subscribers. What they do is provide a totally separate network through the router that can be used by anyone with a BT account without impinging on the router owner's network. It means that when I am away from home, I can often access free wi-fi on phone, tablet or laptop, which is very useful.
Equivalent to 19 USD here, unlimited bandwidth, but speed reduces after 20GB. Supposed to be 21Mbps upto 20GB but I'd be happy to get 2Mbps. Anyway it's the best of the lot without a wired connection. Using a dongle here at university. Home connection is much better at the same price.
Believe it or not, $76.95 a month, not including charges and tax. As far as I know, it's the faster Internet available, that's why I keep it. I could be wrong. I also don't know the technicalities or specifically what the speed is. Not too savvy in that regard.
I've thought I've been getting ripped off, especially considering the company is a monopoly on Cable in the area. It's a notorious company, kind of lambasted across the Net.
Just a note. Visitors are dropping by this thread from my website. Any and all advice, information, and opinions about anything related to internet service, prices, reliability, providers to avoid, etc. is continued to be appreciated.
I pay $88 for Wireless and Phone. Verizon was cheapest for Internet. The don't have FIOS in my area, which is the best deal. I got the best deal for satellite, phone and Internet that I could where I live.
I have 150 Mps down and 80 Mps up with fiber op. However I do not know what I pay as I have a full featured house phone and TV bundled in too for $144 Canadian. This is about as good as you can get in Canada.
