I used to pay 50-90 dollars when i was using the speed dial. The speed is so slow like turtle. I need 3 hours or more just to download one album of songs. I had to watch how many hours i used each day. Prcatically all I can do is browsing the internet and nothing more. Then this March I found out a new promotion from new internet provider that use broadband connection. I pay only 33 dollar permonth for using 768 kbps with about 100 kbps speed when downloading. They do had 3 mbps speed but I cannot afford that. The best part of the deal is I can use the internet 24 hours perday without had to worry about my quota and all. How about you?

yeah it's cheaper if we compared on your internet connection but we considered it as expensive here. The name of the Mobile Network Provider and Broadband internet Provider is SMART Communications. They are the largest Mobile Network in our country.

It sound like a good bargain with the unlimited download. 512 is also a very quick speed.

When my internet was raised from 25 dollars a month to 40 dollars a month, I decided I would have to cancel it. It is very fast, and I have not had dial in decades. So I called my internet company and told them I wanted to cancel. They kept saying OK, if I lowered it to 20 dollars, would you stay? I kept saying no, until they asked if $9.95 was OK. I said yes. So now I have unlimited internet access for less than ten dollars. I'm very happy, especially since it is still so fast.

I didn't do it on purpose. It was just dumb luck. I had made up my mind to get rid of it. But then I realized what I make on mylot in a month can pay for the internet by itself.

I had a dial up connection four yeras back and the speed was ok but it had limited downloading. So i opted for a broadband connection. It is pretty fast now and i pay around 650rs here in india for the connection. I had to pay a one time charge for installation too .i.e. 1500rs. ~Pinks~

I pay for an unlimited broadband internet too. No matter how often I use the internet I pay the same at the end of the month. I pay about 30USD. The connection sometimes fast and other times slow, but it's enough for me. I just got this connection for about 1,5 months. And it's going great.

I am just using dial up connection through my mobile and i was paying 330 INR per month but for the past 12 months 330 is not deducted and i am using it freely. I have also tried to tell this to the department but still they are not taking any steps.

I'm paying P999 every month for my internet connection, so that's like $20-$25. I think it's 100mbps and it's unlimited. Though there are times when it is slow or sometimes it's just not working.

I don't know what portion of my bill is my internet connection, but I'm paying $65 for cable/high speed internet and also cable TV. I was able to get it for a package deal and saved quite a bit per month. I could add digital telephone for $25 more each month, but we don't use the phone all that much and have our cell phones, so it's not really worth it to me to add that too.

They vary so much! I chose a high-speed provider and pay about $25 a month. In the year I've had it, it's only gone down once and only for about five minutes. I'm very pleased with it!
