    Default How much do you pay for internet connection?

    I did some speed tests a while ago. My listed connection speed with AT&T is about 3Mbps down speed. Supposedly, it is the middle of the line when it comes to their dsl speeds... for about 30 dollars.

    I checked the speed test and their average dsl speeds is about 5 mbps down speed. And I thought, holy smokes my connection speed is slower than most people for the price. I mean, that is excluding the network router that they force you to buy (I'd rather use my own one, but nope, they'll force you to use theirs one way or another.)

    64.50$ per month. Which is WAY freaking expensive.

    Second one.... still better than mine...... and with that price. There is a thing called a "bundle", but my family only gets a landline and internet connection, it runs us about something like $40......

    Ummmmmmmm, comparing how much bandwidth you get with that price, it isn't as expensive as my lousy speeds.

    We don't have real net access in Australia, just pre-historic data downloads on phone plans. I pay $10pm for that, reasonably fair considering it's not capable of anything more than getting emails anyway.

    $9.95 a month for dial up, fluxes between 28kbs and 53kps depending on location.
    9.95*12
    = 119.40*10
    = 1194.00*4
    = 4776.00 expenditure over 40 years.

    35*12 average for many United State plans.
    = 420.00*10
    = 4200.00*4
    = 16800.00 expenditure over 40 years. $12,024 savings for investing or spending on in hand products (example-a 10,000 DVD library (garage sales) that beats anything a pay site could offer).

    If an internet site isn’t efficient in style it’s usually not worth wasting time on.
