Readers Respond: How Much Does Your Internet Cost?

Responses: 162


Some types of Internet cost more than others. For many people, the cost of basic Internet service like cable or DSL has been decreasing over the last several years. Newer options like mobile broadband or fiber, however, tend to have higher price tags. Some are willing to pay more for faster speed and convenience, others not so much. Whichever type of Internet access you use, how much do you pay for it? Has your cost gone up or down lately? Per Month or Year

Algeria, the worst Internet in the world

I pay $28 a month, for an extremely laggy and unstable 1 Mbps down/ 256 Kbps up, and its not even that good most of the time (except from 2 AM to 7 AM). I get about 200 kbps, with constant disconnections. It's sad that we have to wait 30 minutes, to watch a 360p Youtube video, for a pretty damn high price.

Kentucky (USA) - speedy, but...

... a little on the pricey side. I have Time Warner Cable in Kentucky and pay about 70 dollars a month for 50 down / 5 up. It does work very well, but seeing how little people pay to achieve speeds even faster than mine is a bit disheartening.

ATT Uverse @ $51/month for 12 Mbps. That's way too expensive in my book!

200$ Canadian per month for 4 services - includes home and mobile telephone, television (HD) and Internet (20mpbs down, 10 up). I had to pay an extra 10$ (part of the 200$) to add unlimited download.
