I wish that we had more choices for our Internet connection.
Congratulations, you now have an unlimited use high-speed broadband connection for $50/month.
Fuel price just shot past the $8/gallon mark.
Sorry to take things OT in such a place, but...
is that a 5 GB/month traffic cap? I'm guessing that's a mobile data plan? What's the speed on those things over there? Traffic limits have been reintroduced here in Finland for many of the higher-speed mobile data plans. I've got my service provider's lowest-end solution on my phone, 384 kbits/s speed limit, unlimited use, and I think it costs around 4-5€/month.
At home I've got a (theoretical) 24/1 Mbits/sec download/upload speed (ADSL broadband), for 39,90 €/month. I don't think any landline connections have usage limits here, haven't checked in a while though. This is one of the reasons I'm happy to live in Finland, although pretty much everything is horrendously expensive.
For example, now that the new government is finally sorted out (it's a coalition government of 6 parties (Kokoomus (a wealthy right party, a bit like the moderate end of U.S. Republicans), the Christian Democrats, the Greens, the Social Democrats, the Left, and the Swedish Speaking Finns' Party), with the biggest election winner and now second biggest party, the "True Finns" (a heavily nationalisic, quite conservative leftist party), being left out because they wouldn't budge on EU policy and immigration issues) - wow that's a lot of nestled brackets - they're going to hike up the price of unleaded fuel by about 10 cents per litre, taking it to about 1,70 €/l at its cheapest. Or about $8,50/gallon. That's just one of the commodities tax hikes they're doing, because the gov't majority party is so deep in the pocket of the wealthy that any return to more progressive income taxes is unthinkable. They are, however, also raising the taxes on corporations from 26% to 30%, even 32% for the very biggest players. This I don't mind, actually, despite being an entrepreneur myself, because they're also beefing up the social security system, increasing the minimum support level by a little over 100 €/month and updating the regulations of the housing support system (the current version was drawn up in the sixties when the standard of living was slightly
In my view, those who benefit most from society have a deep moral obligation to help take care of those who for whatever reason are unable to do so themselves. I sort of wish some of the people in power still had a deeper sense of social justice.
