For those of you who use Verizon's DSL will be happy to know the availability of faster service from them. The new teir will offer a 768 kbps upload and 3 Mbps down for a $40 a month fee.

Depending on the success of the 3mbps plan, Verizon may offer even faster connections to the Internet, company representative Briana Gowing said.

Such "tiered" services are popular among telephone service providers, as they battle the cable industry to sell broadband to U.S. homes. Cable operators, which offer consumers speeds of 3mbps, or twice the typical top speed of DSL providers, are leading right now.

Where do You live then - that You are SOOOOOOOO impressed with lousy 3mbps adsl??

Because where I live...3mbps is kinda golden middle...I mean...its quite fast....but...we have more better offers to choose from...up to 8mbps adsl! And they say to expand that in future...so really...3mbps...NO BIG DEAL....

I have a 4MB down line (cable) and it's relatively cheap here. The DSL and ADSL can't compete here pricewise, unless they start lowering prices.

My poor ADSL (8Mbps down, 1Mbps up) costs hefty 59€ per month to me.
I can live with that, but even 10Mbps SDSL would be better - It just costs way too much!

Come on folks...it isnt THATTTT BADDDDDDDD

But is it really so expensive at Your place emperor? 50 Euro per month??? for lousy 384/124? (or was that 128 instead of 124 )... Just one more question...is that ADSL we are talking about? Because if I am honest...I dont know of such slow ADSL connection...here it starts with 1MBit/256Kbit...and goes all way up to 8Mbit/768Kbit (even higher upload speeds possible for professional users)....so really dont know...maybe some "older" ISP would offer 512 or so ADSL connections...but would really need to search hard to find some... But some Cable connections do start at 384...altough they also commonly start at 512...


Anyway...just to compare some prices recalculated in Euros (all prices are final with all taxes included)...

1024/384kbit 38Euro (29 Euro for students and schoolars)->-compared to cable 1024/256 > 40 Euro
2048/512kbit 46Euro (37 Euro for students and schoolars)->-compared to cable 2048/256 > 48 Euro
4096/768kbit 64Euro (48 Euro for students and schoolars)->-no such cable here-all higher that 2048 are for businesses only!

and finally...8mbit ADSL...but its only available for businesses and other "business users/owners" (thats why its so higher when compared to others above...anyway...they say that it will soon be available for ordinary users also...so an estimated price should not be higher than some 85-90 Euro

8192/768kbit 117Euro (not available for "ordinary" users or students or schoolars ) ->- compared to cable (for businesses only) 4096/512kbit > 183 Euro


so thats it guys...as you can see...its cheaper and more affordable to have adsl than cable here...

and for emperor...never give up...your isp will offer you same speeds oneday......the question is for what price...but anyway...you will have it in time......and in meanwhile...i may lend you some of my free bandwidth
all interested may send offers to...SiliconFreak, p.o. box 007, Golden Eagle Appartment, Mauna Moa, Hawaii


Cya arround guys...take care, enjoy and party all the time while You are still young...

50 euro per month for such a crappy connection?! Outrageous!
Suddenly I feel better with my connection. It's just that I've already got used to it and if some hickups happens on the net and I see bad effects of it, I'll nearly start breaking things in my frustration...
