Speed: 1.5mbps up, 386kbps down
Services: Comes with decent verizon email, and MSN service.
Location: Bloomington, IL
Overall: Very satisfied, the router/modem is great, never blacks out, and always is at the full speed advertised (99.9% of the time)... can't wait till my contract expires and I can get 3mbps down for the same price...
Only bad thing is that router does not have USB connections as advertised, and it's pretty difficult to figure out how to disable the Wifi connection, no manual.. ( i dont use it)
Copy and paste, and fill out!
edit: sorry i put mpbs on the down speed... lol 386mpbs would be nice...
I dont understand what you mean in this forum! How can I take your service in vietnamese?
are you saying you can download at 386 mb/s and upload at 1.5mb/s?? You've got to be kidding me!!!
I have Comcast broadband, and i have 7 megs of bandwidth, and i have a download speed of over 700kbps.
Cost: $49.50/month (around there)
Speed: 256kb up, 256kb down
Services: "nice" email service
comment: if i give them out, i'd get it trouble.
I'm currently still waiting for the guy to come have my internet hooked up at my apartment. I've registered for the internet connection with Comcast. DL 6Mbps UL 768kbps. Still not sure about what i'll get but will post an update once i get fixed soon.
yea i can upload at 1.5megabits (or ~192kilobytes) per second... the 386 is supposed to be kb/s, mistake on my part
people with cable... you ever notice slow downs? or is it always at the full speed? i know that its inherently a shared connection... but just wondering about the end user experience thanks.
Speed: 512 kbps upstream, 512 kbps downstream (that's not it...)
Services: A decent mail box and 13 GB (download/upload) free per moth.
Overall: Not has satisfied as I used to be, because there have been lots of blackouts.
Cost: $58/month (around there)
Speed: 2mbps download
comment: Very good service. It is much better than Singnet actually, from the costs and the uptime. However, sometimes the Starhub cable in Indonesia gets cut off, and the access to overseas sites becomes laggy.
Slow downs, but not frequently. Usually on certain sites...
Cost: $36/month (approximately)
Speed: 256/64 Kbps
Comment: Very bad service. It is very slow and expensive.

Name: SBC Yahoo! DSL
Speed: 1238 kbps down / 313 kbps up (According to a test done at http://www.dslreports.com/)
Services: Not sure, I don't use any of them
Location: Elmhurst, IL
Overall: Good enough service for the money, I had Comcast Cable before I moved to this new house. The only thing bad about Comcast Cable that I appreciate about SBC Yahoo! DSL is that you can run your own web server. It's doing fine for now (the service gone offline for a few times on account of weather) so there's no real need to change.
Oh, lol, as for AOL, I thought of this video - http://gprime.net/video.php/americaonline - sorry.
Speed: 2 Mbps down / 250 kbps up (Only get about 1 Mbps though, due to the area I'm in)
Services: Not too sure.
Overall: OK, moving house soon so might change.

Services: email service
Location: India, New Delhi
Price: 670 Rs/month
I'm currently using 56K dialup, but getting ADSL (just waiting for the router to arrive)
Here's what I'm getting:
Name: TPG Internet
Cost: AU$50 per month
Speed: 1.5Mb/s download, 256Kb/s upload
Services: Email, 10MB webspace, Free technical support
Overall: I don't know, I'm not connected with them yet. I believe that they've got the best value broadband in Australia.
And here's what I'm using at the moment
Name: MyNet Prepaid
Cost: AU$20 for 145 hours
Speed: Dial-up speed (up to 56Kb/s download, up to ~36Kb/s upload)
Services: Email, 10MB webspace, Free Technical Support
Overall: Good value prepaid dialup.
If you get cable, the speed depends on how many other people in your area have cable. If lots of people have cable, it will be really slow. If you learn about networking, then you'll learn this (cable is a bus topology, so all the bandwidth is shared)
Name(s): Cox Communications and SBC ADSL
Cost: $39.99/month and $24.99/month
Type:Cable and ADSL
Cable Speed: 768 kbps upstream, 5Mbps downstream
ADSL Speed: 512kbps upstream and 3Mbps downstream
Location: Las Vegas, NV
Overall: Never goes off and is as advertised.
They are load balanced together as one connection using a CyberGuard 710 router
Speed: 256kbps up 2000 kbps down
Services: email service
Overall: better this than none...
Price: 36€ I think
I like it because it's fast, even though there are other ISP's here but I've not tested them... It's bad because I only get 1Gb for international downloads, and 40Gb (or 20Gb) for national downloads... At least it has happy hours on late night, that makes it possible to download stuff for free!
Name: Telstra Bigpond
Speed: 56kbps dialup, on campus I get 50.6kbps, at home I get around 28kbps-31.2kbps
Cost: $35 dollars a month unlimited downloads and hours
Services: E-mail, discount on songs from Bigpond Music
Overall: Not too bad...they got rid of the free webspace, and stuff like sports coverage is only if you signup for their broadband coverage.
speed: 5mb/s download (most i got was 4mb/s),512kb upload
cost: 50$ a month unlimted downloads
services:email, webspace, and 10 dialup hours
Overal: It goes out about once a week but it never looses its speed. Its a great connection for the small community i live in.
I use Road Runner.
Name: Time Warner Road Runner
Speed:not sure (broadband)
Services: Broaband Internet
Overall: Really fast and god service.

Mac Gyver her ...

Cost: €11,50 a month
Location: Drenthe, Netherlands
Overall: Sucks!, Sometimes the connecting is gone but its cheap
i'm wondering i think i'm gonna do a comparison between price per kilobyte in US vs Brit vs India etc... anyone want to help?

Services: Email, webspace
Location: Ontario, Canada
Overall: Really fast, i like it, i don't really notice any slow downs
Telstra?!?!?! You should change to TPG for $50 per month and get 1.5Mb/s. Just DON'T go with Telstra's Broadband as their plans are just not worth it.
wow that's really expensive dialup ^^ $35... sheesh...
I believe it's $35 Australian, which is about $27 US. It's still the most expensive dialup I've seen, even more expensive than some unlimited 256Kb/s broadband plans!
The pricing of ISP in Hong Kong is lower... about US$20/month for 1.5M!
Name: Bezeq International
Speed: Up to 5Mbps for home clients.
Services: Home Networks, Business Class High-Speed Broadband, IPvPN, Hosting services.
Overall: The best ISP avilable here in Israel, and also the fastest and the most secure. I really like it. But I can't understand who needs 5Mpbs connection...
Name: Alltel DSL
Speed: 3Mb/s Down and 384 Kb/s Up
Services: I just like the internet service, I don't use their E-Mail, and as far as I can tell, they don't monitor my connection, which I love. Privacy = <3
Location: United States http://www.alltel.com/business/wholesale/fiber_map.html
Overall: Eh, I like it. It's Comcast's only DSL compitition up here, I chose 3MB DSL over 6MB comcast because I have neighbors (who's computers I've worked on ^_^) who complain about the speed drops at certain times of the day and certain days.
I used to use AOL it was so messed up with dialup becuase everytime someone knocks off my phone it just mess's up and everything. But Now I have DSL by Bellsouth its only in like South United States.
its a good thing that speeds have started to rise, it was stuck sooo long at 56k... now it seems like it doubles every year...
i remember at one time my dad ( who lived in an area w/o dsl or cable internet) was considering paying USD 500 for a satelite 256kbps connection hookup then USD 99 every month... luckily for his financial health he decided to wait for dsl
