    Just a thread to compare internet speed, price and also know if your ISP is the only ISP in your region

    Let me start first :
    I pay about 75$/month for 120mbps (20mbps for upload)
    My ISP is videotron and the only other ISP (who offer similar speed) is Bell, which was crappy when I was with them years ago

    100 dollars for phone and internet, dropped cable cuz that shit made our bill like 300+ but, basically, I think like..

    50 bucks for near 200MBPS+ speed. But my upload speed is horrible, at like 10mbps or a bit more. ISP is Spectrum.

    Home - I don't even know tbh, but was in the local average when we last switched in 2013 (probably 25-35 € for unlimited landline calls and "20/1" Mbit internet)

    Mobile - 5 € / month / 3GB, plus 1 € for 4G (doubting whether to keep paying for it)

    $9 a month for 30mbps, as that's all I need.
    Same reason why I refuse to buy a gaming PC.

    With Videotron (idk if it is still the case, but when i subscribed it was) for 71$/month you had 30mbps + unlimited bandwidth
    for 75$ i have 120 and unlimited included
    so... I was like, those 4$ more are totally worth it :)

    EDIT : Just checked, they replaced the 30mbps/150gb for a 60mbps/unlimited

    I pay like ~$71.50 for 250/30 cable internet.
    It used to actually be 100/30 but they changed it to 250/30, same price.
    Edit: Unlimited, of course. Bandwidth caps on home internet haven't been a thing here in like 12 years.

    Never heard of truly unlimited. It normally gets like softcapped at 22GB or something like that. Where the speed drops to unusable levels.

    It's a grandfathered old mobile plan from 2004 or something. They don't do them anymore. I'd say they throttle it at some point, but they never seem to. Which I can prove by this:

    Do you live in regions or in city?
    Because here in Quebec, Videotron and Bell (the 2 main ISP) have little to no infrastructure in region
    The best you can have is like 25-30mbps from smaller company

    Shit, you use more data in a month than I do on my home connection in a year :P
    You can get 1TB data plans here, not exactly unlimited but the price is good and most people would never use that much even if it was their only connection. For reference that's enough to stream 720p content 24/7 even when you sleep. So you can basically watch all the Twitch, YouTube and Netflix and download all the movies and such you want and still not use it all. But you still have to be careful about downloading lots of large games though since they can be 30GB or more each, and obviously avoid large 15-20GB movie rips. But I could easily live with that as my only connection, it's fast too.
