    Where I live I have to pay $40 a month for a 54 MB/s connection. I was wondering if this is a rip off, or fair pricing. My donwload speed tops at 61KB/s. And is there a good satilite high speed reasonable priced internet you now of?

    Note: I live in Michigan now.

    If I had 54 MBps, I'd be god. But, I don't. My parents pay about $100 a month for TV, 5 MBps Internet, and phone.

    Umm.. The "54 Mbp/s" is the WIRELESS connection between your computer and your ROUTER.

    ^^^ Yes I'd say good deal for $40/month but 61kbps is HORRIBLE!!!!! It's barely better than dial up, get Comcast.

    My internet was just upgraded today from 30kb/s. Don't complain, now I get 150 kb/s download speeds.
