Paying $55 for advertised 10/1.5m speeds.
TDS Telecom Business DSL - Northeastern USA
3Mb down (advertised and actual)
$45 a month
I'm not complaining since I live rural (though far from being considered the boonies); the business class allows me to avoid bandwidth caps entirely - residential service is 50GBs a month. My only complaint was how long it took to get broadband; it was made available less than two years ago.
6mb / 512k
47.50 a month.
Actual speed, close to 7mb down to some sites when it is in a good mood.
$500+ for . Pretty lame huh lol.
Lemme correct that, I think it may only be 300 a month.
Hampton Roads Virginia
Splitting from my wife and moving into my own apartment here next month, will be paying $89.99 for 50/20 FIOS.
Comcast with PowerBoost. Not bad for I think 50 a month.
$29.99 a month
Fiber to the home via Cincinnati Bell
Yeah, it fucking rocks. $29 a month.
It just means you hit 250GB per month faster, lol.
No bandwidthcaps. I'm well over a terrabyte this month.
I was referring to Comcast.
Las Vegas, NV
8 Mb / 768 Kb
$44.99 / mo.
AT&T @ $60/month
Download promised: 16mbs
Upload promised: 1mbs
Getting better then promised on all counts.
~ $40 per month, advertised as 10/.512
Allendale Telephone Co.
Advertised Upload: Very Slow
Advertised Download: Walk away and come back in a few hours
In a sub division of a good number of houses all of which have no broadband access unless you want to pay up the rear for satellite internet thats unreliable.
$59.99 50 down
pa to tx
16 Mbps plan
6 down / 768 up - $35 a month...
I've got Comcast, my speeds are:
And I couldn't be happier to pay $70 for both internet and TV combined.
Glen St. Mary, Florida 32040 (about 30 miles west of Jacksonville)
pa to tx
Woops, forgot the speed image:
I live in WV. Specifically, a bedroom community between the states two largest cities. This is the only internet provider here that can go past 1.5 mbps and we pay about $39. The service is not very reliable and in order to get halfway decent rates we have to bundle everything. Around here, Suddenlink has a monopoly on high-speed internet and they charge us accordingly. I could get Verizon DSL, but I live too far from the CO to get the 3.0 mbps. I totally understand that wired data services and telecommunications networks are large, sunken costs but there needs to be more choice to offer price competition. Problem is, in areas where the population is low, no one wants to start service and when a community decides to start municipal internet services, lobbyists and lawyers from the telco's put a stop to it.
$29.99. Not the going rate but if you call and ask for a reduction in rate they will give you this deal for 6 months. Yes you have to call every six months but then that is what calendars are for.
768kb down / 256kb up
average, pretty much have to reboot before any gaming session
Verizon FiOS 20/5 @ $39/mo I've got it bundled with FiOS TV and my Verizon Wireless account which is why the price is low.
My BlackBerry on the other hand is another story. I'm lucky if I can get it to stay on 3G service when I'm tethered at my desk. Even then 3G is just good enough. 4G can't get here soon enough.
On my Storm I pay $35/ month for BES (Employer discount) and $15/month for a tethering plan (no discount). On 3G I get close to 1M down. Not sure what my 2G speed is, but it feels like dialup.
So all together I pay around $89/month for Internet service.
tested from philly pa to boston mass
Czech Republic - EU
small local ISP
no data limit
10 per month
It's supposed to be 8mb/768kb
I ran tests from dslreports.com, speedtest.net, and test.lvcm.com (speed test left up from when cox bought LVCM).
It's widely varied; dslreports.com gave me a speed of around 1.5mb, and I used to be able to trust them, but now I'm not so sure.
the lvcm, the local test, shows my speed at 8mb/3mb, but that's very local.
speedtest.net gave me an 8mb to the las vegas tester, but 1.5mb anywhere else.
$44.99/mo (with bundled services, would be 54.99/mo w/o bundles)
$30 (iPhone Data Plan)
This is through tethered to my iPhone, its what I use during the day. I'll post later my speeds from my home cable connection which are quite a bit faster.
Verizon FiOS 20/20
Speedtests are useless as they show powerboost type results. I get my full speeds up and down via ftp, usenet, and torrents. I'm right outside Boston so there's also Comcast and RCN available.
Why on earth would you pay the tethering fee? Pdanet or wmwifirouter ftmfw.
last place, DSL 3/768k
now it's even worse ... but it's only temporary. Hopefully going with a fiber connection next
Cable One.net - price is $60 per month and they cap your ass if you exceed a certain amount of bandwidth after 4PM. I kept adding entries about this BS policy to Wiki a few years back and someone AT cable one were deleting it. If I transfer under 5GB downstream, my service speeds get cut back to 2.5-5.0Mbps and the upstream is less than 250Kbps.
The only other alternative around here is crappy 6Mbps DSL.
with PDAnet, I was getting d/l speeds around 300kbps. Not bad for a cell phone It was considerably faster than download speeds I've seen on the phone itself.
$1300/year for housing .
I have Comcast business thru work, stated as 16/2 but I can do sustained throughput at about 17.2/2.8Mbit and I have bursted to ~30mbit down and 5mbit up.
Best part is it's FREE!
Central Oklahoma. I have Cox's lowest speed package (advertised 1.5 mbps down, 256 kbps up). Dunno what the exact cost is since it comes out of my apartment rent, I haven't asked.
12 mbps down costs ~$45/month. 20 mbps is ~$60/month.
