My internet speed is 20 MB/s download and 10 mb/s upload, though sometimes it goes really much more to about 100 mb/s and 60 mb/s.
My internet is in the same packet with digital and analog TV and I pay $15 each month.
Ours used to be to be unlimited. Then they just changed it.
Sadly the only other choice I have is limited far worse and more expensive.
No idea why so many are going back to this. They claim its to make the internet experience better for everyone, by reducing the load at peak times. But, that doesn't change peak usage in the least.
The truth I suspect is a way of making more money. And they know theres no where else to go if you want internet service in this area.

$91/month for fiber optic internet + long distance and local phone services as a combined package from the local area phone company- not counting what I get refunded each year from some co-op dividend although that doesn't usually amount to more than 1/2 of a month's payment.
I could possibly get better speeds from a big name ISP, but I'd probably end up buying long distance separate if I did that and I'd prefer not to do business with the larger companies.
