Talking about speed...

For those lucky ones in Singapore and wired up via http://www.opennet.com.sg (expected to hit 95% penetration this year), they can get *today* :

Starhub: 1000 Mbps down, 500 Mbps up, International up to 100 Mbps @ SGD 396 (USD 316)
200 Mbps down, 100 Mbps up, International up to 25 Mbps @ SGD 158.36 (USD 125.45)
150 Mbps down, 75 Mbps up, International up to 15 Mbps @ SGD 136.96 (USD 109.35)
etc.

Singtel: 200 Mbps down, 100 Mbps up, International up to 25 Mbps @ SGD 95.90 (USD 76.55)
150 Mbps down, 75 Mbps up, International up to 15 Mbps @ SGD 85.90 (USD 68.60)
etc.

Those are just the two major providers and that does not include discounts if you use multiple services from the respective providers.

There are additional players involved offering a diverse set of packages that cover other speed/price ranges as well.

Actually I am in Peetzig, Germany.
The only available service is Internet via Edge (T-Mobile D) and I got the stratospheric speed of 15 Kbps...
Very often I cannot even open a page, to download my mail I have to do it in steps, to get a page I had to cancel the images reception...and ALL in the High tech country Germany.
And I am 72 Km. from Berlin!!!!
