Readers Respond: How Much Does Your Internet Cost?

Responses: 43

By

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

70 USD + taxes for Fibre Internet in East Canada. 50 Mbit/s download and 30 Mbit/s upload. Real speed is as advertised.

Lesser of two evils, in Australia

Ezi-Web is an Aussie resort and caravan point that charges different rates for different places, and they are through the roof. ~$12 for 50 meg one day expiry. I think they even jiggle their count upwards. They makes my Optus cable ISP of 20 gig a month for about $69 look positively angelic, and there's nothing angelic about Optus..

Florida, USA

I pay $46 for 12 mb thru Comcast in Indian River Cty in FL. Way too much, only other choice is Uverse. Comcast probably has highest costs in the country.
