That first one is 10/10 I think?

I pay € 50 per month for a set of; 20 Mbit cable internet, digital TV and a phone connection. Calling to people who are using the same provider is 100% free (for instance, my parents).

No mistake, it is 100 MBit download and 10 upload, for just 20 € per month.
100 MBit download is 50 GB of data in about one hour.

That's nice. I wonder why I have to pay that much for 20 mbit. But hey, it has just been raised from 10 to 20mbit without an increase in the monthly fee.

I hope the faster internet especially accelerates Google Earth.

I pay 25 pounds for 10MB fibre optic, it's a bit expensive but we don't have a landline, si it was the only option for decent internet, Virgin

Now I have 10/10 MBit/s for 14 €.

What to choose?

Same here. Although I'm not sure how much it is because I'm not the one who's paying for it
I think it was quite recent as Virgin broadband (former Telewest) upgraded speeds from something like 2Mb to 10Mb. Feels so much better now (all that por... ehm, I mean movies download so much faster now).

For 25 pounds they should offer at least 15 MB, hopefully they will in the future

So today I've upgraded to 100/10 MBit/s for 20 €/month (they needed 15 minutes after fax was sent - in the pretty early morning). All those pictures in long roadtrip reports now load instantly (one second or two at most). My oh my, how it flies. SSC server is now the slowest part.

You need to fax such a thing? In Sweden it's enough to just call them and ask for the upgrade. An oral agreement carries just as much validity as a written one, so they simply tape the conversation.

faxing is soooo 1980's

We have a fax at work. I know only one government employee who still prefer the fax above email. So the fax is idle for 99,9% of the time

Anyway, I just got a raise from 10 to 20 mbit. Downloading files @ 2.5 MB is great, but the upload is still only 2.5 Mbit.

Hmm, I don't think so. I haven't used mine for a decade.

It's the fastest thing to do. You need to underwrite everything to confirm, so sending fax of underwritten confirmation is the fastest thing. This is not a problem, because faxes are a common thing on work.
