I bet I can agree with everyone when I say that BTL really needs to upgrade their internet.
If you were to live in the U.S., you would notice the amazing increase in internet speed. The lowest they have is 1megabyte, which is the highest we can attain by paying how much? $1000? Yes, $1000. While the U.S. only need to pay about $40-60$ a month.

The first month comes out to about $1000BZ by the time you pay for the phone line and hookup, the modem, Internet install, monthly Internet fee and deposits. The land line is a hidden cost as you have to have it to get the Internet.

I'm just grateful to have a phone and internet access at all. Most people on the planet are having trouble getting food and water.
