I have 16 Mb for 15€ living in a small city in the center of a circle with very important cities.
I know it is not the best deal though (old contract taken with us 2 times), looking for alternatives right now.
I just had a look... My option is not even listed anymore.
30€ = 32 Mb
35€ = 100 Mb
45€ = 400 Mb
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Town of 8000, 100km from Sydney CBD. Nominal 50Mbps, measured 35-45. About 300m of copper to the fibre node. Bundled with landline phone, $A70/mo, about USD50 at the going rate.
 And a monthly "limit" of 1TB. That's well over 250 hours of HD streaming. I don't even get close. [/edit]

In Netherlands I live in a city I have ADSL which is around 2.5 MBps download and 300 KBps upload (Big B = Byte, not bit, multiply by 8 for bits). Unfortunately, for Netherlands the ISP does not matter, it is the government who owns the line (ISP only rent it), so no alternative. The price is around €30.
In my parents place in a small village in Bulgaria we have coaxial cable above ground. I get 4-10 MBps download and 1-8 MBps upload (no hard limits, depends on the usage, but usually it is above average). The network is really prone to breaking due to thunderstorms, but it is super fast. The price is 32лв. (~€16) and includes cable TV.
It is amazing what lack of regulations can do for the internet (if you do not care there are cables everywhere outside).
France, countryside, 8-10Mbps ADSL, 39€/month (but it is triple-play, so with TV, phone, and reductions on mobiles, etc...). Fiber is around 60 to 70€ for 100Mbps, but still not deployed in the countryside.
I pay British Telecom £10 a month to rent the line even though I don't use it for phone calls
I pay Sky £20 a month to provide broadband
Then Mark Zuckerberg, Jack Dorsey and google decide what content I can see for free.
Well, it also comes with three IP phone numbers and probably a bunch of streaming stuff (which doesn't at 5meg, and online storage which I don't use, and maybe an email address or two which I also don't use.)
