Re: hmm Did you visit 10 years ago or something?
I'm connected at about 15Mb/s at current, And i live very far from the exchange - some people have over 100Mb/s on Fiber or Cable here. And 'up to' 24Mbps ADSL2+ is available anywhere more than two people live.
You must be looking at Telstra when you get those data prices, Here you can get 500GB for $49 or totally unlimited 24Mb/s for $75-80 with about three providers.
Also, Alot of providers shape to 1-4Mb/s when you go over your limit, alot of people can't even sync that far (in any country) due to speed from the exchange - so even the $50 plans are basically unlimited.
