Poll: How much do you spend for your Internet?

Poll: How much do you spend for your Internet?

Ok, new poll again. Just wondering how much do people spend for their internet connectivity on a monthly basis?


Options include:

* Almost free — if you get it from school or office or something similar
* Less than Php500 a month — mostly if you’re using prepaid dial-up
* Less than Php1,000 a month – for entry level broadband connections
* Between Php1,000 to Php2,000 a month — for mid level DSL connections, mobile broadband (Visibility, WeRoam)
* Between Php2,000 to Php3,000 a month – for mid level broadband or multiple connections
* Between Php3,000 to Php5,000 a month – for top tier broadband, multiple connections or mobile internet
* Above Php5,000 – either you gotta you got a leased line or you’re spending way too much on internet connectivity

If you’re sharing the internet cost with someone else in your place who also uses it, only indicate your own shared expenses. Likewise, if you have multiple connections (2 DSL plus WiFi plus 3G), just add them all up. If you use prepaid mobile internet like Smart 3G/GPRS, just make an educated guess how you you spent for it every month.

    I have multiple connections. Smart Bro- for Lauren which is 995, PLDT for my main work station (with landline 752 kbps) at 1500 something, Globeline Broadband for me and my other daughter (with landline at 1 MBps) at 1500 something . I have to go to Globe to reduce the cost because it’s now 1295. a total of almost 4 thousand

    Destiny Cable – started P2500 (unlimited) in year 2000… then lowered to P1900(512kbps – 256kbps)… and again lowered to P1688(2Mbps). Now it’s at P999 (unlimited daw, but max at 4Mbps).

    Living in PI for the last 10 yrs., I have come to the conclusion that there is very little BB service to be had out side Manila. Of course you need to define BB, for me that would be 2mbps (NOT up to) down and 1Mbps up.
    Such a crazy mismatch quilt of companies overlapping coverage, and in the next sub-division no coverage. If I can see what ipsatellite delivers and it’s not UP TO then I will spend the $2000.00 for equipment and service.
    At the present time Smartbro is P999 and Comclark is p1350 (up to 768) more like 384 DN AND <100KB UP. For me that just sucks. If ever there was a company that induces hate, ComClark sits on top of the heap.
    If you only email and surf, SmartBro is OK, barely.
    Damm, be glad when the 2 yrs is up.

    I spend around P2300 a month. I have sun, globe, and wi-tribe. Wi-tribe is the fastest but limited within metro-manila. Globe and Sun are at even par. Globe signals are sometimes cut. Sun is pretty reliable in Metro-Manila. If you’re always within MM, get wi-tribe. It’s really great!
