    It's funny, I'd have said mine was quite quick until I saw most of the other results! lol

    Just had my home cable internet connection upgraded this week. 15Mbps/2Mbps to 50Mbps/2Mbps. It costs me $55 NZD (approx. $47.60 USD) per month with a datacap of 80GB.

    How much does your internet cost you per month?

    Include the following:
    1. Cost per month
    2. Expected internet connection speed.
    3. Network type i.e. xDSL, Fiber, Cable, UFB etc.
    4. Data cap (if applicable).
    Home:
    [​IMG]
    1. $55 NZD
    2. 50Mbps/2Mbps
    3. 80GB
    4. Cable connection
    Work:
    [​IMG]
    1. $300 NZD
    2. 10Mbps/10Mbps
    3. 60GB
    4. Fiber

    Work (Upgrade from above):
    [​IMG]
    1. $129 NZD
    2. 100Mbps/50Mbps
    3. 100GB
    4. Fiber

    Nice! Is that your home connection?

    It's actually my work's connection, but I could have the same connection at home for $89 NZD ($60.41 USD) per month on an unlimited data plan.

    That's a good deal. I'm getting about 130 down/10 up (according to SpeedTest), but paying more than that.

    Mind you, I wouldn't be surprised at all if ISPs optimize for sites like SpeedTest so you think their service is better than it is.

    One of my challenges is finding a speedtest server that downloads at full speed to test with :(

    That is what happens when you wave a truckload of money under the sales guys nose.

    It took quite a few "pretend I'm Warren Buffet..." phone calls to find someone who would take the money off my hands and even give me quotes to get something other than DSL :(
