Haha ... Eastern Europe have better and much cheaper connectivity than Western Europe (general rule). For Romania for example 1GB domestic bandwidth is very common and affordable (~10 euro/month)

I'm pretty sure he meant the US when he said, Westerners.

Yeah, I meant the US =) I used to have 100Mbs but then I moved to this new apartment, after being told I could have any internet I wanted I discovered that was untrue. I have some scam service whose site doesn't work, and AT&T 18Mbs for what my 100 used to cost. I definitely feel for slow net users... I am one now rofl but that's what happens when you assume the random flunky at the front desk knows her bum from a hole in the ground -_-

I'm lucky. Even though i'm in the boonies in the Rockies at 9000ft, Spectrum covers my area. A little over 100MBs for a reasonable price.

Suddenlink or as we call it Sudden Stink. I think its $90 a month. I get mad at them because we never actually get 1 gig/sec. down. I use my own modem and separate wireless router both are rated over a gig. I understand that wireless wont be close, none of the current wireless cards can actually do a gig. But my Pc with a 5 foot Ethernet cable plugged into the modem, I usually only get 750 - 850 mbps down. It’s aggravating paying for their best product and it always comes up short. I’m only maybe 600 - 700 yards away from the main fiber optic trunk

Yeah, that's a lot to pay if you're not getting what they sell you.
