    Hi my dear friends.I want to make something about internet prices.Why? Because i am really curious about who pays what for what? I am from Turkey (Türkiye) and internet is really expensive, also too slow.So it is really helpful to learn the world.I can make searches but this is the most certain method i think.Will be too happy for your posts.

    Türkiye / Türk Telekom (biggest isp) ADSL prices
    1024 / 256 (4 GB download limit) 29 ytl/mo (22$)
    1024 / 256 (6 GB download limit) 39 ytl/mo (30$)
    2048 / 512 (6 GB download limit) 49 ytl/mo (37$)
    1024 / 256 (limitless) 49 ytl/mo (37$) (that's mine)
    2048 / 512 (limitless) 69 ytl/mo (53$)
    4096 / 1024 (limitless) 89 ytl/mo (68$)

    Speedtest
    592kb/s download 210kb/s upload speed via 1024 / 256 (limitless) package

    Other ISPs
    There are some other isp in my country but they are really small and the work like an agent of turk telekom.Sometimes they have some promotions but the prices is around turk telekom.

    Others then ADSL
    The other faster connections are not common.Rarely and very expensive.

    General Problems
    Generally we have speed and out band problems.And very poor support via tel/fax.
    SEMrush
    i only want to learn the other countries internet speed/price and policy. Please if you have time let me/us know about it.Please give some detailed info if you can, tell your package and the all isp if you know

    I pay over $200 per month for 1mbps (never gets that close) with absurd limits on download and upload. I think its 12GB down or 9GB up before it slows you to a below dialup connection. We hit the download limit just by surfing the web in the first week of the month.

    UK i pay £21.99 pcm for a 12 MEG connection, Unlimited usage DOWN AND UPLOAD. With Karoo (KCOM)
    (which would be around $45 a month in the US). No offence but you guys in the US are well over-charged/priced and the services dont seem good :(
