Internet here is a reason good enough to get your immigration papers together. Packages start from 512 kbps to 8 Mbps for the home user. Up to 48 Mbps for "businesses". I was over at Comcast's website a bit ago and my jaw dropped. Thought internet in the US was "expensive". Turns out it's nothing compared to us. We only have two "major" companies providing the service nationwide, with others mostly being shittier than shitty. Take a look at the prices: http://www.linkdsl.com/LinkDSL_Code/Pages/DslAvailabilty/ServiceSubscription.aspx?lang=en-us http://www.tedata.net/eg/en/Home-ADSL/Home-ADSL-Prices-List Note: 1 USD = approximately 6.96 EGP. To give you just a taste, the 2 Mbps down/ 512 kbps up package WITH A MONTHLY TRAFFIC CAP of 4 GB (like...two HD movies and you're done for the month) costs 70 EGP, or $7 approximately. For about $20 you get 4 Mbps down / 1024 Mbps up WITH A MONTHLY TRAFFIC CAP of 40 GB. Some people are calling for an "internet revolution" here against the ISPs How much do you pay and what do you get? Are there any "sneaky", "stupid"...etc policies applied by your ISPs to make your lives harder?
