Readers Respond: How Much Does Your Internet Cost?

Responses: 184

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

Port Arthur, Texas, USA

$83.98 for pretty fast. 34.13 Mbps Down and 5.73 Mbps up. I've got a desktop, an iPad, an Android phone and 2 Rokus running off of it at the same time. I use about 350-500 GBs a month they say... .

I don't know. I started using Internet on my new smartphone and it ate up all my broadband data of 10 GB and crossed to 22 GB. These PTCL thugs don't have a mechanism to tell the usage of data. When I started using Internet over phone it costed more in regards to data.

ACS Alaska bloooows

Worst Internet competition? Kenai, Alaska is bad. My neighbors get 1 mbps (120KB/s download) - they pay 80$. I have god knows what. They say its 1 mbps but its more like 56k. I download no faster than a steady 40 kb/s. I pay 60$/mo. When i called ACSALASKA (worst telecommunications company ever) to try to upgrade to 1mbps, they told me too many people have broadband and one of my neighbors would have to die for me to pick up his spot. Alaska: If you like fish and hate Internet, come on up.

From places unknown

Before 6 months, I took latest 4G connection from AirTel which gives download speed about 15 to 20 Mbps and upload speed is about 10 Mbps. Pretty fast and good for a monthly rent of $14-15 a month for 5 GB use. It is with wireless router for Wi-Fi in home. I am happy with this latest technology of 4G connection.
