it only cost around $0.15 per hour for internet surfing (in an internet cafe) here in the Philippines. If you buy a broadband internet surfer ($50.00/set), it is much better. That is why many students and people here in the Philippines are really get addicted on the internet as it comes cheap.

I don't pay much for my Internet connection because I have a post-paid plan, which is very affordable here. And yes, I could also have free access to the Internet outside my home. I just need to bring my laptop and go to a place with wifi. I don't have any idea how much 1 RMB is, so I really can't compare your Internet expenses with mine.

$10-15...That's about the same amount that I spend for my Internet connection. But I think that rate is OK because I could have unlimited access to the Internet. But I'm already working, so maybe that's why the amount is not so huge for me. But for students that would really be a big amount.

I have unlimited internet access but it cost me an arm and a leg I'm thinking of switching internet services, but there isent that many internet providers available where I live that dosent require a big deposit, and other crazy cost to start, I think they need to come up with a new service for internet surfers and users that cost less then $20.00 dollars a month with no deposit and fast service, I think that most of these internet service providers are charging way to much, and who ever has free internet service is very lucky because I've never heard of that here I wish there was free internet where I live.
