I dont do much downloading(updates to windows are getting most of my monthly cap)and my severely unstable connection is free(thus proving I get what I pay for)so I have no need of higher than 5Mbs.I have often wondered what a really fast connection would be like,but here in rural nuclear dustbin land with no cable/fibre-optics and the prospect of the UK's version of 4G pending,I'll just have to continue wondering.Besides which,most of the really fast connections I've seen advertised are restrictive with a meagre cap.

Am I missing a bigger picture here? Why would 62% of you (as of this post) want to pay any more than the least expensive option. Whose side are you on?

The question is 'how much would you pay', ie: how much is it worth to you. Of course, we could ask: 'would you take 100Mbps broadband if it was free', but I rather suspect the answer is plain!

£20 a month.

With only the one parameter to judge it on it is very difficult to give the right assessment. I would probably pay £25 a month if it gave a reasonable download allowance, good upload speeds and no shaping at busy times. What I don't want is the equivalent of a Ferrari that will do 200mph but has to stop at every filling station on the motorway. I currently get a constant 7Mbps which is fast enough for virtually everything that I need and sufficient download allowance that I rarely exceed it, and all for £17 a month, so why change?

If IPs met their current advertised 'up to' speeds, the majority would find 100Mbps overkill. I would suggest the vast majority choose their package on cost, volume and maximum speed in that order.
