I created this poll 9 years ago, but it was set to expire in a week, and the members in MalwareTips are very different than what they used to be.
So, here's another poll that I will set to never expire.

Would you like to let us know which COUNTRY you are from too? If so, please let us know.
Then, we can have a poll for the countries as well, based on top 10 most responded countries in this thread.
is there a disticnition between "from" & "live" eg, I currently live here but I am from somewhere else.

Yah, I believe a lot of people here pay around $85-100/month , I only pay $60 but I only get 2gb of data, its all I need .
That's way too much. 😮 I pay 10,72€ for unlimited calls/SMS/MMS + 6 GB.

On this front in Italy I'm lucky... mobile line I pay €5.99 per month for unlimited calls/SMS and 70GB.
Home landline €20.45 per month for calls and unlimited internet

Still good.
Yep, still good unless you're a trucker, or question the efficacy of mandates, or object to your young child attending drag queen story time, or are an independent news organisation that won't play the mainstream media game and actually questions government politicians, etc etc. Yep. Still good.

Fortunately most Canadians don't think like this, we'll leave that for other countries please.

Canada rates pretty highly down here. Maybe its a Commonwealth thing.

But, all we hear lately is Justin Trudeau's failing marriage and plunging popularity, Jordan B Peterson's re-education and massive bushfires(best wishes). ...and of course re-runs of Letterkenny. (...to be sure)

Trudeau's been in power a long time, everyone has a shelf life and he will probably be gone in 2 years.

The problem here is lack of competition and that's why we have higher prices. We only have three ISPs which are also mobile network operators, so there really isn't much of a competition. There are two MVNO's (used to be three, one failed), but they are literally owned by two of these ISPs and are used for dumping prices. From what I heard, they also have less priority on the network meaning less quality service.

If I'm not mistaken, Italy has five main mobile networks and at least seven MVNO's which compete with each other. Consider yourself lucky. 😄

Fortunately there are still a few independently minded folk around who aren't taken in by the disingenuous nonsense and outright lies from the Establishment, mainstream media and the like. If you don't work for the Liberal party or the CBC maybe you should consider it because it sounds as if you would be a good fit. Or if you prefer a bit more physicality then maybe the RCMP. Sure, they get a little over zealous at times when it comes to peaceful protesters and elderly ladies in particular but hey, as Saint Justin says, it's all for the greater good.

Yes in Italy on this front we are very lucky, if you don't need the 5G network and you just need the more common 4G network you can look at many offers for less than 10€ with on average 30 to 100GB per month..
That's right we have 5 main mobile networks (TIM, Vodafone, Wintre, Iliad and Fastweb) and various MVNOs including 3 companies owned by 3 of these ISPs (Kena, HO Mobile and Wery) and they also have a lower network priority and speed limited to 30/60Mbps...after that there are several other MVNOs
Personally I'm with Ho Mobile (Vodafone MVNO) after years of main operators and honestly I've never felt the lower priority even on sensitive areas during some emergency...the only one in my case is speed limited to 30Mbps, but there it depends on where it is used in big cities you can have a greater impact but in areas outside or in the countryside where there will be a slower speed the limit is not felt...
