    How much do you pay for your internet connection?

    I was just wondering how much do people pay for their net connection since we come from different parts of the world. I have a 20 Mbps upload and download speed which I pay for $40 a month.

    How about you guys? Thanks!

    My last bill was £48.73 which is just over $63. It's Virgin Media's top broadband plan with around 220Mb/s download. While a bit on the expensive side it's more affordable when you don't have any television subscriptions (including the savings in the UK specifically by ditching the TV license) and only top up your phone occasionally. (Saying that, I do have Netflix.)

    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    WOW! 220 Mbps, that's fast, I mean really, really fast. You mentioned top-up, so does it mean it is pre-paid and capped at some point and not entirely unlimited?

    I get about 65Mbps and mine is $55 a month. The package goes up to 100 but in my area, the speeds max out just under 70.

    I am going to look into other options when I move because I would like better speeds.

    My present connection is called PLDT Fiber and it has speeds up to 70mbps at nighttime and about 40 Mbps during the day and peak hours. It's unlimited without data capping and my monthly subscription fee is about $50 or PHP 2,799 in Philippine currency. I also use and subscribe to mobile prepaid data and it's costing me $1 per 3 days or a total of $10 per month for a 30gb data for surfing with 9gb Facebook and 60gb YouTube provided by Globe Telecoms.

    Entirely unlimited! I've never had any kind of problem with a fair use policy. Better yet, for only three pounds more (and the cost of the new router which wasn't much) they upgraded me again a couple of weeks ago.



    Kakashi, that's impressive. Looks like I won't have to worry about internet if I visit in the next few years.

    Too much for a access that is fickle at the best of times!

    Visit the Philippines? Yes, I do agree that internet speed in the metro is fast. But if you're planning to visit the outskirts of provinces or islands, the last time I checked you'll be lucky to have 5 MBps max on mobile data.
