    How much does your Internet cost?

    BBC News - Why is broadband more expensive in the US?

    My net costs me less than $10 per month for 14 mbps (this speed is enough for me).
    How about you?

    I don't know.

    My 7Mb/s internet access is included in my rent...along with my electricity, heat, trash removal, etc.

    60mbps for 12euros ~= 15$.

    I am planning on upgrading though (roughly 15euros~=18$ for 200mb) but if I do that, I lose my TV subscription that I currently have and need to get a new one... and that's kinda tricky.

    I pay about $20 for 2.5 mbps. I can't stand that speed, but I guess it's the price I pay for living in a tiny mountain village. It would be more for near the same price if I were somewhere else.

    because we allow cable monopolies and don't build as much public infrastructure. however, i think it's trending toward more competition with high speed wireless. i really feel for those who live way out in the country and have to deal with that ****ty satellite provider. i've read reviews, and pretty much every customer hates them.

    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.

    Are you planning to watch HD on the Internet? I don't see the point anyway.

    I pay less than $18 a month for very fast 24/7 service.

    Those who pay more in the USA are getting ripped off.

    Well... no.
    And it's more than enough for all online gaming requirements (I play World of Tanks online)
    And it's more than enough for web development.
    And it's more than enough for everything really even for watching 1080p on the internet.

    But I could do with higher upload rate and with the 200mbps agreement I'll get around 10mb-14mb upload speed (I currently have between 4-6). And it will help getting more loyalty points with my ISP provider and the not have to worry about my internet for another 3-4 years which is like my update services cycle. Once ever 3-4 years I change most of my things Whether it be my phone and my phone services (get a better deal), my internet connection, my TV subscription, maybe see what my electricity and/or gas providers have as new contracts... etc.

    If I had the money I'd also get a new PC because this laptop is 5 years old. In human years that's like it being 60. I needs some fake teeth (my laptop keyboard is shot so I use an external one), it's back is in pain (cooler works poorly) and it talks a lot about the good old days (makes a lot of noise when running any real application).

    Yes it is and the only reason that it's going on is because of corporate influence obtained through campaign donations.
