I pay €15/month for stationary home telephone (with 3600 minutes included) and ADSL. I pay additionally €2,5 for mobile internet which is rather slower.

P.S. Here it is:


It's quite strange why when using the mobile net it shows server in Samokov (some 70 km from here), while I am at my home in Sofia

Compared to my ADSL, same computer, same location:

I pay around 12 € for that speed, and this payment also includes the TV.

I don't know why, but today my internet connection was extremely slow. This usually dosen't happen. I took the test again and I had a big surprise:

you guys are lucky. even in Netherlands 30€ for 40Mbit is quite a deal, compared to what they offer here in France. I pay 35€ for 5Mbit (the highest speed possible), and no optics available here (Paris intra muros !!).

In Slovenia there's 33€ for 20Mbit internet with tv and telephone.

I pay € 24 for 100/20 Mbps (download/upload)

The maximum speed I could have in my current home is 150Mbps but that is offered by a different company and would cost € 28.

In Sofia I pay 10€ for 50 Mbps, which goes up to 100 Mbps at night I often have the problem that my hard disk can't cope with the download speed In the UK I pay 30 pounds for a connection, advertised as 13 Mbps, although 99% of the time it's between 2-3 Mbps... Romania and Bulgaria strong, when it comes to Internet connection quality...

I think the price and speed of internet connection might have something to do with the percentage of people living in multi-storey apartment buildings. In Estonia, a 100 Mbps connection is available in pretty much all apartment buildings in larger towns but many private house suburbs are still uncovered (so people living there have to stick to just 12 Mbps).

It's way cheaper and more profitable to invest in high-speed internet in apartment block areas than it is for private house subrubs. I think that may be one reason for the low results of the US, UK and Netherlands.

I believe Canada has the most expensive telecom services in the Western world .

I currently pay about $50/month for a 12mbps connection (with a ridiculous 512kbps upload speed). It also has a usage limit of 60GB/month.

I pay $32/month for my cellular data plan (for a usage limit of 1.5GB/month), and that doesn't include the rest of my cellular plan (i.e. the phone plan).

Hey everyone,
I would like to ask you for some suggestions.
I'm an IB (International Baccalaureate) student and one part of my 2-year course is Extended Essay.
I have to do some research and a study and culminate it in a 4000-words paper.
I decided to choose a topic connected with highways/motorways but I still haven't decided.
It is more or less like a thesis that you write when completing a Bachelor.
Would you have any topic suggestions?

Thanks in advance

It helps if you turn the heat down. 25.5 C, do you like to live in a sauna?

Probably he doesn't pay high heat bills. For me, 21°C is more than enough.

Also I forgot to mention, that internet connection in my appartment is faster than internet connection of a company where I work (with 30 co-workers).
