My current 2-year contract with my Internet provider is running out and I want to get a better idea of price/speed ratios.
Here are two deals I got from T-Online in Germany:
Call-n-Surf Comfort Flat Rate Internet and phone 3 Mbit/s 33 Euros ($45) / month
Call-n-Surf VSDL Flat Rate Internet and phone 25 Mbit/s 48 Euros ($67) / month
I read that someone has VDSL and "high is 768/128kbit", I assume is upstream/downstream. This means that he is getting 32x less speed than advertised.
And wikipedia says that VDSL in Germany is "25:5 Mbit/s or 50:10 Mbit/s downstream/upstream", what do these two speeds and the colons mean? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Very-high-bitrate_digital_subscriber_line
What is a good price / good speed for Internet connection today in general and how can one tell beforehand if the speed will actually be the speed they advertise?
