UK Broadband Advances to 24 Mbps

The 24 Mbps broadband service is worth 24 (US $42.84) per month, and here are the benefits:

  • Three (3) times faster than the closes competitor in the UK
  • Allows 1.3 Mbps upstream, about 5 five times quicker than any other service provider in the UK.

I really envy other countries for state of the art technologies… imagine, UK is alredy deploying 24-megabit per second connection. Australia had already offered the same services, whereas in the Philippines — we are not even half-way yet!

If you review the prices, $42.84 is not that much… it\’s about P2400 only. In contrast, PLDT\’s Small Biz DSL, Sr. which is 1.5 Mbps or T1, the fastest consumer / enterprise broadband connection offered by PLDT that I know, costs a grand total of P14,500 per month. o_O
