Man, what are you saying?? In India we have fairly good broadband connections, its just that not much home users get them so they are not advertised much & instead low-cost, low-speed connections are advertised.
MTNL/BSNL offers 2Mbps speed & you can get higher speed lines on request also from VSNL. In equivalent dollar terms high speed broadband will be way cheaper than any other country.

In my case configuration is:

Connection Type: ADSL2+
Average BandWidth: 256kbps in day & 512kbps in night
Service Provider: Airtel
Cost per month: 350Rs. per month = 8$
Additional Benifit: 100 Local Calls free

They offer 2mbps only on the connections that are otherwise restricted by ridiculously low data transfer limits. (e.g., 400 MB/month)

The highest speed offered by any ISP on a connection with unlimited data transfer is 256kbps.
And that costs around Rs. 1000 /month ( ~ $25 /month)

Well, I'm in MD, US; I used have Comcast at my old house for 7Mbps for about $50 (or was it $60?) per month. We moved 2 months ago and I got us Verizon FIOS (It's their new fiber optical lined service). I just picked their lowest one, I didn't feel like dishing the additional 10 bucks per month for 3 times the bandwidth @_@. And, I just went to their site, and they are offering a discount that were not available when I signed up *sighs* Anyhow:

Connection Type: Fiber Optical
Bandwidth: 5Mbps down/2Mbps up
Service Provider: Verizon
Cost Per Month: $40 (pre tax)

It kinda surprised me when I heard highspeed internet providers elsewhere restricted the transfer amounts; (my friend in UK was complaining about having to buy additional GBs because of the high quantities he downloads). Once, I downloaded 100GB worth of stuff in 2 weeks on an, if I remember correctly, around 700kbps line at my old apartment near the campus once. Who knows how much I've downloaded at my family home. If my ISP limited transfers, I would have bankrupted by now.

Hi members,

I guess I use the connection which nowadays is most popular in india and still increasing it's base, yes it's none other then dataone connection.

The specifications as requested are:
Connection type: through cable
Average bandwith: it is 2 Mega bits per second or you can also say 256 Kilo Bytes per second
Service provider: None other then our BSNL(bharat sanchar Nigam Limited)
Cost per month: Rs 500 + Rs0.80 per Mega byte above 2.5 Giga byte per month extra
Total download limit: 2.5 Giga byte that's really sufficient!!
Free Download time: from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. whatever you download will be free, so you can download movies (not the trailers but the whole movie!!), also full softwares, etc, etc.

In one word I must say Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited is the best as it gives best service at low cost. Though one thing is the drawback, that is if you have any problem in your connection then this govenmental service will get you a lot of effort to get your connection working.

Bharat sanchar nigam limited also has a plan of Rs 250 which is best for average home user while the Rs 500 plan works best for surfers.

Good day!

Well I get 200MB/month plus unlimited download in night ( from 9PM to 8AM @ 512kbps)
I dont know about you,(since according to you 400MB is also low data transfer limit) but in my case 200MB is quite sufficient for normal daytime browsing,chatting,emailing etc. By using a Download manager, I schedule all downloads in day time to start at 9PM, all updates like av update, application updates etc. happen in night time. So, it just satisfies my needs.


By the way, what plan are you using?
odinstag
I have a cable connection on a wireless network.

Can't remember the speed. But it is fast.

I think it is near $50 a month with the phone bundle we got. Way to expensive IMHO. The people that do pricing should be shot. There is no reason for something a machine does to cost so much.

I was looking down the list of peoples connect and I see that some people have service from the same company with higher ups tream and downstream and paying like 10 dollars less then me. But I don't know if that is because At&T bought over the company I am with now and just kept the same prices.

I have a great one for being in the US: Verizon FIOS. 5mbps down, 2mbps up for well under $40 as its part of a combo deal. (Normal price is $40/month). For $10 more a month I could get 15mbps bandwidth, but I don't want it.

CMA, 30GB/month international downloads I would not like to have! Just this monring I downloaded 3GB of video mostly internationally.

And please everyone mention your upload speeds. I used to have a connection with 4mbps down but only a quarter megabit up and that's horrible for P2P activities. I like my 2mbps uploads much more.

Connection speed: 5mbps down , 2mbps up

I have an ADSL2+ connection. I have a 150 Gigabyte quota (of that 40 gigabytes for on peak and 110 gigabytes for off peak). This all costs me AU$69.99 which is a pretty good deal in Australia. There's nothing much to compete with it actually.

I have my broad band connection

The speed is 128kbps but they dont really give 128kbps

i think i get around 100 or less than 100kbps

I am paying 700/- rupees in indian money

I am not really satisfied with the speed but i do not have any other choice as we have only one provider in my location. I fight with him for more faster connection but no result.

I have dial-up connection with three different providers. I don’t know about speed, sometimes it’s so bad that I wait for several minutes to load a page and then I just have to switch to another provider, usually at least one of them has a little better speed at that time. I pay less than 10 euro for a whole month. Maybe I will soon start to use ADSL… I’m not sure I need it.

Setanta Sports Package - Includes Setanta 1 & 2, NASN 1 & 2, Setanta Golf and at the races.


All this i am getting for just £61 with them for life.

My ISP has recently enabled ADSL2+ on my exchange, so that's a 24mbps theoretical maximum (it usually goes around 7-8mbps though), and it comes with 16GB high speed downloads, and when the download limit is reached, speed is throttled to 126kbps until the end of the billing period at no charge. It also comes with free IPTV (with about 30 satellite channels), which does not count towards the monthly download limit.

So yea, I'm quite happy! Only $49.99 a month! Very Happy

It seems in most of the places people are not so happy with their connection however they are sticking to their connection only because they do not have any other choice.

Well friend, I thought that in India there were better and cheap internet services than that.

Here in Nepal, our internet services are worse. We get the option to choose between dialup and cable internet. Dialup costs more than cable because of the phone bills that it generates. So most of us who are lucky enough to get a cable box near our house get cable internet and it's about Rs. 2000 for a 24($30) hour surf plan and my plan which is a night surfing plan(8pm to 8 am) is Rs. 650 ($10) per month. The speed of the internet sucks. When I download files without doing anything else it downloads at the speed of 6kbps.

This isn't quite good because at your 10mbps you have a lower bandwidth ( 3274kbps is about 400kb/s, while you should have 1208...)

Sorry forgot to paste this image, this test site is really cool, here are my statistics of 256kbps ADSL.
And gues whats the price?? 20$, yes. Internet is real costly in here.
While you ppl get 3mbps for 12$ Sad

blind_underwear
Sadly enough, I have comcast "high speed" internet. It is actually slower then my grandfather's DSL and I pay like thirty five dollars more a month then he does. They are always having problems with their network. I was actually told that they internet is so slow because it it summer. The previous three summers it was slow, but not as slow as this summer. Their tech support is horrible. One time I could only type in ip addresses and not url's and the tech guy actually laughed at me and just told me to have fun trying to figure out the ip addresses of the sites I wanted to visit and then hung up on me Mad . I'm glad that I have moved to a new area that doesn't have comcast, so now I have Charter and love it.
DivineLight
Well that's a horrible story, I know what it's like without net. ssome days ago I can't logion and it was sunday, so no tech support or I wasn't lucky no one was answering the calls.

But even in here (Pakistan) situation is not that worse, where do you live?

But there's something wrong with it now, so it's a bit slow... very slow.
Hunterseaker

This is not a very good result, normaly it is much higher, about 4000 kb/s download speed. Tho today my connection is really slow Sad. And thats the whole problem, I pay for a high speed connection: 20M, tho the real speed is much slower.

I have DSL and I have a Dutch provider.
I pay 36 euro's a month.

So you can imagine I'm not quite happy with my results......
dude_xyx
Im using ADSL line which I pay 30 US dollars per month. Line suppose to give me something around 512 to 1 MB download speed But it never happens. Usually gets something around 128 MB. Since there is only on ADSL provider there aren't we can do. Also its not based on bandwidth and its a Unlimited line. So I have to be happy with it.

This was done at work. We use a business-type of ADSL connection.


The internet market is monopolised here though, because the telecom network in Belgium is the property of a former governmental organisation. Because of that, we pay far too much for internet access. My home internet costs 42€/month, with a download limit of 12 gigabyte/month.

I have no clue how much it comes in a month, as we have a package with ours, telephone, digital, and internet, so internet on it's own I wouldn't know.

In Sotuh Africa we only have one choice so the costs are high. I will quote the price in Rands, divide by 7.5 to get US Dollars.

I have ADSL from TELKOM in is a 384Mb and cost R129.00, and I have a 3 Gig download/upload bundle from SAINET for R139.00 so in total I pay R268.00 which is plus minus 35 US Dollars.

I am in called Nepal and the internet connections here are worse than what it is in India. I think that my the bandwidth for my current internet connection is also provided by India. I used to use dial up which was really slow and cable internet connection which was equal to the speed of dial up about a week ago. Then ADSL got introduced for the first time in my country and I subscribed to it as soon as I could.

So here is my internet connection details:

Connection type: ADSL
AVERAGE BANDWIDTH: 128 kbps (they say it but it's slower that that)
SERVICE PROVIDER: NT (Nepal Telecom)
COST PER MONTH: Rs. 904 ($13 approx.)

I think I will upgrade it to 256 kbps as soon as they allow upgrading of accounts and promise a good support for my internet connection.

i think my internet speed in our country is not better than your country.

In Indonesia, not only the speed is so slow but got many problem, we can say almost 30 or 40% our online time ve got a problem, many time is we can't get online.

so the indonesia internet connection is so complete you know, slow+got many problem.

what we pay is a rubbish internet fee.

even u want to browser, or chatting or open you email you will waste your time to wait and wait to got this open.

so we are the same destiny.

our internet speed is only 64kbps with unlimited, yes the price is cheap only $ 10-12, but dont expect to get the stable connection in indonesia,, i think our internet speed in indonesia we can say is retarded.

even when you download only 1-2 Kbps, so the 64 is not the real speed, if i say the real speed is just 1-10kbps.

so you can see our internet speed is so sad and so tragic you know.

I'm currently at Rutgers University housed in an oh so wonderful dorm, so the university is the one providing the internet connection. It's very fast and very reliable, however the overwhelming number of students attending the school means that everyone has weekly download/upload limits which is incredibly annoying...not to mention the price tag for on-campus housing is absurd.

It is a little slow sometimes but not a bad speed.

By the way some of you are saying your speed isn't as quick of a speed as advertised, the reason may be because the speed advertised is in (Megabits) not (Megabytes) as with my internet I get a 150 Kilobyte/second download instead of 1.5 Megabytes, I think a Megabit is a tenth of a Megabyte roughly.
mwsupra
My connection type: Cable...
Speed is up to 7 megabits per second...
Costs $45 bucks a month...
For $10 bucks more a month I can get premium, which is up to 15 megabits per second, and if I'm downloading something and need the extra bandwidth it can boost up to 22 megabits per second... Very Happy

I work for a DSL Intnernet Service Provider so I feel bad using cable... but its not a bad deal and all I can get where I live anyway...

Comcast ~ $30 / month.
15 Mb/s d/l
5 - 9 Mb/s u/l
Impressed with the service, no complaints except when storms come through in the summer.
No noticeable bandwidth caps, despite using over 45 GB of bandwidth in a week, in addition to much more conservative usage for the rest of the month. Has allowed me to host gaming servers, my own website, and a moderately fast FTP file server with no problems. Has allowed up to 6 people to play with no lag on internet based (not true LAN) FPS games. They do, however, block traffic ports until and unless you call them, prove that you're a power user, and give them irrefutable evidence that they should open what you want them to open.

I really can't complain, the service is excellent.

The speedtest below is what we are afforded at Carleton College. It's quite ridiculous, and students basically have these speeds and unlimited bandwidth. (But pay an equally ridiculous tuition).

Hi dear, I think people would know better if we also quote the currencies Smile

Anyways for me Airtel connection, it got 4 MBPS speed uptil 6 GB after which it decreases to 256 Kbps.

The cost is 899 Indian Rupees per month along with a landline phone.

I used to use Bharat sanchar Nigam Limited but thought to try out this one. Bharat sanchar Nigam Limited is good for economy and Airtel is average in all aspects.

In addition to the earlier connection I also use Airtel GPRS through my phone by bluetooth connection on my laptop.

Airtel charges 98 Rupees for it ( 2$ ) per month and it gives a speed of 120 Kbps or around 15 KBPS when on max speed. Not quite speedy but yes quite effective to reduce my internet bills Smile

Well lots of guys have a descent mbps connection but I am still at kbps. So, anyways here is my details

Connection type: ADSL
AVERAGE BANDWIDTH: 384kbps
SERVICE PROVIDER: Nepal Telecom (NT)
COST PER MONTH: $25/month including tax
Additional Benefits: Nothing so far.

But they are cheating on the actual bandwidth. My connection is very slow right now and they did nothing so far after complaining for more than 5 times. Lets see what happens.

BTW, no download limit at all. I can download as much as I want. 24hrs a day. This is nice considering most of the guys have download limits per day.
