I'm jealous too, currently paying £31.50 a month for 60Mb and the majority of the time I don't even get that.

arjman3885d ago

I'm getting 1.3mbps in the countryside so don't be too jealous lol

extermin8or3885d ago

um the standard if you aren't ina major city in the uk is like 20 pounds ish for UP TO 20mbs- which according to the regulator and various stats places means you'll get an average of about 9-11mbs- where im currently living I get.... about 5mbs -_-
