Just for information I want to know following thing.

1 How much money do you spent for Internet Connection per month (According to your country currency).
2 What is your internet connection speed.
3 Whether it's LAN or WiFi or Some other type.
4 Don't forget to mention your country.

Thank You :)

In the USA, all that can vary greatly depending on location, what is
available in that area, what company is chosen, and what choices
are chosen.

For example, I have DSL which is thru my telephone company and
it's not a major company, not like BellSouth or anything one would
recognize. My landline and DSL is thru the same local company and
I contract per 3 years which gives me a discount on monthly fee. I
am paying about $42 for DSL each month. Funny because my
actual landline service is almost twice that and I rarely use my home
phone. :mrgreen:

In the USA if one uses a Satalite company such as DISH for example,
they usually pay round about $75 to $100 per month.

In the USA there are cable networks such as Charter and Comcast
that will bundle cable tv service with internet service and they usually
charge per speed package chose. Example $40, $50, $60 as in the
most costly being the fastest speed.

There are also people that go thru major companies for all their wireless
needs such as Verizon, AT&T, etc. The prices can vary greatly dependent
upon what the customer wants.

I don't know what my speed is unless I go to one of those online speed
tester thingies.

-------- went to a speed tester thingie and it says 2.51

In the UK I pay £32 a month for a wifi broadband connection of 63 mbps but it's around 40 mbps actually ( that's always the case with internet providers )

Just tried the test again and it says the following:

Ping: 68 ms
Download speed: 248 Mbps
Upload speed: 50 Mbps

I have the DSL and WiFi if that makes sense. I don't know about all the connection jargon.

I don't know anything about the numbers but I do know I do like my internet service.
I rarely ever have an issue with it and if I do, they come out very quickly.

With that said, I live in a very rural area. I'm fortunate to have it due to where I live which is
practically in the forest. :lol: There happens to be a small rural high school about a mile from
where I live and that is why I was able to get the service I have.

In fact, I was their very first customer, after the school. They is some sort of a connector pole
or some such, down by the school and i am in range to have the DSL/WiFi.

I think they come out quickly when I do call them is because, they are not doing anything else. :mrgreen:

They're probably just sitting there, twiddling their thumbs and saying....'I wish the school or
Valerie would call so we'd have something to do'. :lol:

Ohhhh and they use to always say that I was their best customer! Then I found out, I was actually,
their only customer (besides the school). Hilarious!

LOL :lol: :lol: :lol: That's what I call a good service . If I ring my internet company they usually send someone in 10 working days but I had to wait even longer than that.

I guess there is good and bad about most every where one lives.

The Internet service is good but I there is no pizza delivery here. :o :lol:

Well there is an old thread here some where about internet speed and some had posted
their speeds but I don't think anyone stated the price they paid.

I don't my pounds to dollars conversions so I still don't know what you pay.

You said 32 pounds I think. Everything is more where you are in regards to the dollar/pound.
So I will guess that 32 pounds must be about $55 dollars. I think the pounds is almost twice
as much as the dollar......or is that the dollar is almost worth twice as much as the pound....well
any way you look at it, you're paying more in regards to pound/dollar in writing. :?

I am paying $AU40.00 per month for unlimited download on ADSL2+ broadband on a copper-cable network.

I just did the speed test and this is what came back:



I think if I did the test again at different times of the day the speed would vary a little, depending on how many people are trying to access the service at the time.

I also know that I have a "higher than average" speed because I happen to live very close to the local "node" (i.e. exchange). I think the average speed for download in Australia is about 4.5 Mbps. The Federal Government is in the process of rolling out a fibre-cable network but after the recent Federal election this has been downgraded. My understanding is that Australia is ranked ~ 40th in the world for internet download speeds.

Canada is known to have the highest (rip-off) prices on internet and highest bandwidth caps.

Prices will vary depending on caps and speed.

I have the Broadband Extreme Speed bundle, which is 30Megabits/S 3Up, 150 GB monthly cap (yeah that is terrible, especially for people who use netflix, play online, or buy their software online (digital download !!!). Pay over $65 per month.

On the other hand, our cable provider sells residential phone service where you can use your regular phones
connected through a multi function modem, for $24-$29 month ALL inclusive phone including Caller ID, call waiting, call waiting ID, conference call, call forwarding, extended voice mail, etc.etc.etc.etc.
