    No one has unlimited any more that I know of. Also, I used to have it, after a tornado went by near hear, I lost the signal.

    How about you?
    My Droid is my internet, so my bill is misleading. I don't pay for internet seporatly, its part of a package of services.

    My Droid w/additional line, insurance for both divices, Lookout, 12gigs of data and unlimited everything else, is $220 per/mo. When I want to go online with my PC I'll turn on my Droid's wifi hotspot, or tether it.

    I believe Verizon's internet speed is a 15/5, not sure though. I can play movies and games just fine.

    Those who pay more in the USA are getting ripped off.
    Unfortunately, for me, the only choices I have are dial-up (much slower than molasses) or Verizon air card or hot spot. The area I live in is low-lying, with ridges on all sides, and Verizon is the only one out of several that are available in my area, which works here. It runs me $50 per month, which I don't really like to pay, but it beats the alternative of dial-up any day of the week.

    if it were up to me, i'd probably use public money to expand access like the REA, which my grandfather worked for as an electrical engineer. of course, that would start all kinds of new fighting about taxes and socialism. until then, enjoy Hughesnet, i guess.

    It's even worse in some areas. We had 56k dialup a couple years ago, which is still the norm in that county.

    60-70 for semi slow, down 25% of the time. It sucks, not enough competition in my area.

    It's that way in a lot of areas. Say your phone company serves 100K people. Hard for them to afford equipment to begin with and still maintain lines, etc. If spread out over a rural area, it could cost a competitor $10 million or more just to cover the area, doesn't make financial sense for them to come in.

    $170 a month, measured in 50 GB a day. Very exaggerated, but that's what you get for living in the countryside.

    Anyway, pretty much everything except alcohol is more expensive in the U.S. (including vacations to other parts of the world). At a certain point you stop questioning it.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Yeah, right. You should check out European gas and real estate prices for instance. Or computer prices. Or car prices.
