Free ADSL vs Paid Optic

  1. Hey,

    I'm in a difficult situation here. I have had over 3 years of free ADSL internet at my home now (due to a mistake with the ISP). Anyway, my speed has been stuck at 5mbps ever since, with no download/upload limit.

    Today though, I've noticed that my ISP has an option to get fiber optic internet, which is 40/40mbps currently and the speeds will go up soon...

    But if I switch, I'll have to pay for it... So do you think fiber is worth it? Or should I just keep my 5 mbps for the years to come :p

    Before getting a large bill in the mail.
    You should pay for a new Internet contract (fiber optic if that's what you want)

    Perhaps you are right... getting a bill which is more than a core i7 desktop would not be a good thing :p
