September 2012

A new offer is released by Bredbandsbolaget. The first 2 months is free of charge if upgrading from 10 to 100. Considering the price difference of 80 SEK and the faster upload speed, this is a sensible offer. To be able to store data in the cloud for backup, a higher upload speed would be more convenient.

320 SEK/month

Hans uses the Media computer with WLAN connection up to March 21 when he discovers that the surf speed is increased significally by connection the computer via a LAN-cable.

July 2012

Hans moves to a new appartment with an RJ45 broadband connection supplied by Bredbandsbolaget. After one week of free trial, there is no question about it. Even though the theoreticl top speed is just slightly higher than the mobile broadband, the surfing experience is much more pleasant, problably due to the delay caused by radio networks in mobile connections.

July 2010

In July 2010 Hans has the following internet access subscriptions:

The Tele2 connection is a little bit slow considering all large files handled for different web sites and email. An upgrade is necessary to be prepared for the next few years. Hans wants to keep the old email address trebla@telia.com connected to Telia Internet, so he choses a Mobile Broadband from Telia, even though the corresponding Tele2 version is cheaper.

Cost for current connection up to 0.3 Mbit/s: 124 SEK/month Cost for the new connection up to 6 Mbit/s: 196 SEK/month (considering special 99 SEK/month the first 6 months) The new subscription has a binding time of 24 months.

Good
  • Fast
  • Nice user interface
Bad
  • Slow, only 237 kbit/s, when connected through Edge
  • The modem USB stick is so small that it can be lost

October 2007

Good
  • Flexible, works with any computer, installation software is built in
  • Usually fast connection for only 99 SEK/month
Bad
  • Requires at least 600 pixel hight on computer, cannot be run on the HP netbook
  • Sometimes the network is temporarily down
