    May I have your Internet Access type and Information?

    Hi All,

    May I have your current Internet Access choice/method? Please kindly state the monthly charge (flat rate and conversion rate to USD, for example) as well as speed connection.

    Conclusion

    1) What are your current Internet Access choice/method?
    2) Monthly charge?
    3) Speed, download and upload?
    4) Any additional features?

    I would like to gather this information so that I can compare yours with my country because my country is now offering 24-hour Internet connection. If I collect enough information, I will write an article to my local newspaper regarding relevant information from all over the world.

    Thanks in advance.

    My country Internet connection.

    1) ADSL
    2) RM111 (note: RM4 = USD1) for unlimited Internet access
    3) speed of downlaod 384k and upload 128k.
    4) 1 Free email (this one forget about it because so many free email providers) and IChoose membership (one non-free membership area that offer multimedia entertainment, such as movie, music, etc.

    at what point does the human soul end

    1. ADSL
    2. Around 50 euros per month (it's coupled with phone bill)
    3. 512 down / 128 up
    4. They did not update their DNS since mid May: some crazy folks may see this as a feature, I see this as a major annoyment, and since there isn't much competition in the ADSL field I cannot just dump my ISP and get a new one the next day
