It depends on where you live in the U.S.A., what services are available, and how much you want to pay...


Note: Actual D/L speeds are about 15Mb/s, something called "Powerboost" doubles that for the first few megabytes :-)

TBH I'm shock at the speed you have in the USA. Ed 29Mb down is not bad, may I ask how much that cost's please.
I've an 80/20Mb connection with Throughput of 76.53/16.49Mb and that cost's me $42 US give or take (26).

Hello Paul1360,

My internet connection costs about $50.00 dollars/month. I'm envious of your speeds!

There are many reasons for the wide variations in internet speeds available here in the U.S.A. Some are political, some are economic. Rural areas suffer because of the vast distances and low population densities make it uneconomical for ISP's to upgrade the infrastructure. Some folks might propose taxpayer subsidies to the ISP's, or taxpayer-provided internet services as a solution, others might point out the unfairness of making someone else pay for their internet access. It is a touchy subject.

There are areas where we can get speeds like yours for about $100.00/month (big cities mostly), and other areas (mostly rural) where only dial-up (56kb) or satellite internet is available. Where I live they are rolling out packages similar to yours now.

Ed,
I live in a rural area and as stated have a bad BB speed until a year ago and then it went crazy with the increase and then several days ago BT did an uplift of speeds and am now on double the speed. Just read a report from BT who own run and are rolling out the infrastructure that from the 12th they are going to start trials on a variant of 330Mb down / 80Mb up, the trial will be free but they have not given out any price's for this. I really thought your speeds were a lot better than here, alas shows how far off I was lol. By the way I had a hard time getting FTTC to our area, as we are so far from the exchange and told there would be little take up. That has proved wrong as they have had to put another DSLAM in as the first filled up fast lol.
