    50CND= 30.5€ (euros)
    Comme in France instead, for 29.99€ (49.16CND), 5Mbits also, but modem included for free (as long you keep the suscription), plus telephone over ip and cable-like tv.
    An all-in-one offer I'm proud of for once (Froggyland being a bit late technology speaking) :D
     
  6. A bit late :eek:
    In England we're paying £32 (48.6305 EUR) a month for just 1mbps!
    Haven't even got 2mbps available for use yet... :(

    2mb has been available via ADSL for a long time now, and as milecastle pointed out, 6mb is available in certain area's. If you're in a cable area, you can also get 3mb.

    you can get 2mbps just not through BT Openworld
     
  13. I'm with Zen, and was told that we couldn't have 2mbps for home use for a while yet...
    I live in Norwich, which isn't technologically outward, and I live near enough to the city centre (ok 3 miles, but who's counting :p) to be viable for higherspeed.

    Wow

    Hey, here in Luxembourg we get 256kbits/128kbits AND a traffic-limit for 10Gigs/month for that same price! Wish I could live in a country where there wasn't only one telephone company who abuses it's monopol. It's even worse than MS in my opinion....Oh yeah, did I forget to mention that this is the DSL subscription price per month only and that you need another telephone subsciption which comes for 25EUR?
