I used to pay Rs.300/- per month for my dial up internet connection. This was provided by Air Tel. Since it was too slow and for the signal problems I had to swith over to plug and surf type Internet Card which gives good speed as compared to the dial up connection and for this currently I am paying Rs.999/- which is equal to about $2.5 !! But this is worth for the speed.Oh yes! I had to purchase this Internet Card for which I paid initial amount of Rs 3000/-.How much do you pay for your internet connection per month ? Please respond !

Hi, I'm from Michigan (USA) and have my Internet service through Comcast. I'm not sure of the conversion from my currency to yours, but I pay about $35 (USD) per month, which is actually a pretty good deal for high speed around here. I get a discount through my job, which really helps out. I hope that helps! Take care.

what? $2.5 per month? that's very cheap! you guys are very lucky to get a good internet connection for that the cheap price. i just changed my ISP to another ISP which provide better service and faster connection. it cost about IDR 200.000, which is about $22 per month, but the apply the loading quota, which is up to 1 GB per month. it's more expensive than my former provider, which charge me IDR 125.000 per month for providing connection with unlimited access. but the later is much faster, so i leave the former. they give the modem for free and give discount 50% for the first three months. what do you think?

I have high speed internet connection at home It is about S$52. As we are having mobile connection, internet and cable connection topgether we have 25%off on monthly bills. But that amount is being covered by online earning and so no regrets.

I'm paying Taka 850/- per month for my dial up internet connection.I can use it for unlimited period. My provider is Grameen Phone,the largest mobile phone company in Bangladesh. Previously I used Internet Card(no initial payment).Then I had to pay 50 paisa per minute.Now I feel comfort. Because at present I have not to count money for useing internet service.Now the speed is also good.Whether you are in advantageous position or I'm ?

We got a 1mbps broadband internet connection right now, and we're paying about 1900 pesos per month, since the plan that we subscribed have a computer set in it. The speed was alright, but still there are times that the connection were kinda slow to the supposed speed that it should have.

i am using dsl broadband and it costs $13 with taxes and it's speed is 512 kb/s and i am very happy with it. never had an issue with it and i too used a dial-up before and it was very painful as it used to take ages for the pages to load but yet something is better then nothing! but now it is fantastic, i get around 64kb/s download speed and it is enough for me as i don't download much stuff.

I'm using a wireless connection at PHP 1,000 (About 25$) per month. It's not that fast but at least, online games are playable with this speed. At 384 kbps, I really think what I am paying for is somehow worth it.

I'm using a national connection called BSNL, and I have to pay a sum of INR 750 per month. That comes to around $15. It's fast enough and I love it because I can do stuff which I couldn't previously do on my dial up connection. Like online gaming and streaming videos. Now its fun all the time. bourne

For the last six months we have been recieving our internet connection free because our internet service provider made an error with our account so have offered us this as an incentive to hold on to us as customers. However as of this month the price rises back to what it originally was which is just under twenty pound a month give or take a few pennies.

Honestly, as of now I am paying for about $40 for my internet. I am here in our province and the connection here is kinda slow...so I have no choice but to pay $40 for an average speed internet. If possible, I would like to have faster internet because in our previous house (in the city) we have a fast internet unlike here... but if we want the same speed here as the speed in the city... i think we have to pay 10 times more.

i pay around $30 for a 1mbs connection in singapore.although there are faster speed plans available,i prefer to stick with my original plan as i am not a hardcore gamer or surfer.i just use my internet to download stuff,chat,surf the net etc.nothing particularly to make change my plan.i think broadband speed is better than dial up as it is more faster and i only pay for a monthly usage which is unlimited.

Globelines... not really enriching lives.. - ...but more like stealing you of your hard-earned money because you are paying for the service that should be rendered unlimitedly.
I am currently subscribed to Globelines Brokeband (broadband)... and they sucks!!! Since October 3 till today, I still do not have internet connection. I keep calling their technical support center mostly on an hourly basis and they always give me the same old, repetitive spiels they were instructed to say to all callers complaining about their crappy internet connection. Many Globelines subscribers here in our country are frustrated/disgruntled over their sucky connection. Globelines will show a fast and reliable internet service for the first month and will depreciate after the first month and onwards. I pay a monthly fee of Php 995 ($21) for the broadband bundle (landline phone + 384KBPS unlimited internet) and Static IP fee of Php 700 ($14) for a total monthly fee of ($35).
