    The title says it, how much are you forking out every month for your internet access and what speed package do you have?


    We're paying $63/month for their slowest high speed package, which is "6 meg" I think. The one above that (8 meg) is $73. The thing is, Comcast is the only company that has their lines laid down on our road, so we're pretty much forced to oblige to their ridiculous demands. Might as well call them CONcast :/

    Those prices are horrible. I pay $50 a month for this:

    Upload speed sucks, but it hasn't really kept me back from anything. This is also during peak hours, I can get DL's up to 32mbps or 3.2 megabytes per second during "off" times.

    Many of you have what I consider excellent internet connections, because you are in urban or suburban areas.

    But there are trade-offs as with anything.

    For instance, While I'm waiting for a download I could stand in the back yard taking a leak on a pile of burning leaves with a beer in one hand and fire a semi-automatic handgun at my satellite dish from the other hand. Not that I do ... But I can, legally.

    $55 a month 2MBs\250KBs ( advertised at 16Mbs\1Mbs). Although been thinking of going Verizon due to the higher upload for the same price which is 500KBs although there download is not as good although i need more upload speed for my gaming needs and other stuff :).
