Hi, my internet here is 5Mbps and has a 25GB download limit. It is quite fast also when downloading. For a month it costs $19.60, I think that is the cheapest her in Malta.

You got a very fast internet connection there. Imagine 5 Mbps for an amount of $19.60 . I wish we have an internet connection here in the Philippines like what you have there in Malta .

yes now it is fast as the company has made upgrades, well both main companies did that actually. Then there is Vodafone but we tried it and it was very slow compared to what I have. it gets my nerves on when the internet is slow since now I'm used to a fast connection. Well maybe in the future they will upgrade yours. They will surely need to do that with all the people using internet today.

I am from Philippines and my internet speed is 0.77 mbps for download and 0.11 mbps for upload . My internet subscription is from SmartBro . My internet speed is just right for me, I do a lot of downloads sometimes, but I rarely upload files on the net.

I am from China and my ISP is China Telecom. My internet connection speed is 1MB at home. I don't want to pay more to have a faster speed. The cost is about USD17.65 every month. My dad's friend even has 4MB internet connection and it is much more expensive. But he shares it with his neighbors, so it's worth:) I love China

We have the same speed as you but sometimes i think it too slow and i don't know whether it's because of my computer. It takes me an hour to finish 10 posts here . Just too slow. Every month we should also pay USD15 to make sure that we can get on net at any time. Recently our country is promoting 3G which will speed up our computer . Just wait and see.

Hi! I also have 512kbps speed using SMARTBRO (broadband connection) and it's fixed 999PhP monthly (unlimited plan). I'm from Philippines. I'm satisfied with the speed since I only use the internet mainly for our online business and some browsing.

Hi there Saroj, I am from Chennai, and I have a Airtel connection which is 256+128kbps. They charge me Rs.999 for a month unlimited downloads. I think you are lucky to get 512kbps at only Rs.750 a month.

Hi! I am a BSNL user too. I have the Rs.500 plan in which 1.5 GB download/upload is free and the speed is 2Mbps. However the best thing about this is that from 2am in night to 8am in the morning there are no download/upload charges that means surf the net for free. And since I either do internet late at night or early in the morning this plan is the best for me. ANd 1.5 GB is sufficient for me for normal surfing..

Hey, Well my Internet connection speed is about 20MBps and that is adequate. Also we have got about 20GB of downloads each month, so that is quite nice. I mean we pay about $99 per month for this, but the plan allows us to have unlimited national calls too. Make sure you have a good day, God bless and Happy Lotting!!

My internet connection speed is 100Mbps.. That's already enough for me Actually I take an unlimited package and the speed only 512 kbps, but I don't know why it appear as 100 mbps.. I've already report about this and they say it's normal..so,, Thanks God It charges 12.5$ per month plus government fee 10%, so I need to pay 13.75$ in total.. My isp is speedy. It's in telkom group and it's a government company..

Hi friend, we too have an excellent internet speed as we have opted for the broad band connection. Except for someimes when there is heavy traffic we have never had problem with the internet. I too live in India and the broad band connection is provided by Airtel. Even we pay around $15 per month depending on the usage. Happy mylotting.

Mine is 256kbps and I feel this is little low for my requirements. But this speed is some what better for the rental I am paying, I can not change it also. If I am using more than 5 tabs in my browser to to browse, it is taking much time to get loaded in the day time.Browsing mylot is little harder to me in such situations as already mylot is not opening even at the good connectivity for me. Mine is from BSNL only with unlimited plan.
