How cost internet and most used connection on your country

Postby admin » Wed Aug 06, 2003 10:31 pm

Hello,

on my country Italy ..

most used should be still modem/dialup .
1 Hour dialup costs about 0.80 € (1$ is about 1 €).

However in the last 2 years ADSL and fiber-octis connections are growing fast ; especially on big Italian cities they are near to surpass the number of dialup connections.

ADSL flat (h24 connection) costs about 30~40 €/month and it offers 256 Kb/s

ADSL speed reachs also 2000 Kb/s but it costs more (around 60~80 €/month) .

In some very big cities (Rome , Milan) there are also fiber octics connections available , offering connections at 10Mb/sec , but it's expensive (over 100€ month) .

In Italy are available also gprs Internet connections via cell phone . It's enough a cell phone with gprs , or a notebook with a gprs PCMCIA card .You can have a 56 kb/s mobile gprs connection for 10 €/month , with unlimited traffic . Gprs signal is enough good , in most places of Italy (consider that gprs was introduced in italy 3 years ago) .

On January 2003 was introduced in Italy also the UMTS technology (internet connection via cell phone with large band), but the costs are still expensive for now.

There is also internet via sat ,but it's not very used , since expensive too.


Most 3 active internet providers in Italy are
http://www.tin.it (adsl, dial up, Sat Internet)
http://www.tiscali.it (adsl , dial up , Sat Internet)
http://www.infostrada.it (adsl, dial up)

Most 3 active gprs providers in Italy are
http://www.tim.it
http://www.vodafone.it
http://www.wind.it

Umts provider in Italy is (only 1 provider)
http://www.tre.it

Internet Fiber octic (only 1 provider)
http://www.fastweb.it


And , on YOUR country which is the situation ?

Pejone is right some ISP have a agressive politics for using internet.... you may get internet for 1$ but only dial-up not more for xDSL only one operator may give internet Utel

As for the USA, you can get moderately-fast DSL in most places for $40/mo., and many as low as $30/mo. Occasionally you see it for cheaper, but not often, and it's often just a limited-time deal.

Dialup costs about $10/mo. through Juno or NetZero, which is available in most places, and if not, you can usually find it for $20/mo. or under. Unlike many countries, local telephone calls are free (there is a monthly fee, but no per-minut/hour/call fee) in the US, so the cost of dialup can be less prohibitive. Many people with dialup get a second phone line for their house so they don't have to tie up the phone when they're online -- is this true in other countries, as well?

Here in Italy local telephone calls are expensive .
A Local call costs about 1$/hour if you call in the Region/district (let's say max 150 km) . Out of region/district cost more , much more . For example a call from Rome (center Italy) to Milan (north Italy) costs much more , don't know exactly but around $10/hour .
Then , there is also a monthly fee of about $30
every 2 months only to have the right to have a phone number.


Here in Italy to have a second free line there are 2 solutions :
1) Adsl line , and you have a 2th line automatically (1 line for adsl 1 line for phone)
2) Dialup : quite expensive , there is a monthly rate to have a 2th line

WiZARD, where did you find these prices? I've never heard of T4, but I know that just a single T1 line costs several hundred dollars per month. For an example, check out this company. They have T1s (1.5 MBps)starting at $399/mo., DS3 (45 MBps) at $3000/mo., and OC3 at $8750/mo. Yow.
