I’ve been feeling my internet connection kind of shaky lately so I decide to give it a shot and run a bandwidth test. You have no idea how much I hate the idea of doing this, given that I pay around $65 a month for a 2048/768 connection. God! for that much money other countries can get 12 mbps!
Well, here is what I am getting…
That means the down speed seems decent. But the up speed!!! It is close to dial up
You know what the problem is? That even though we have multiple companies providing internet service, it all goes down to the government at the end of the day. My cable company is Amnet, although they depend on Racsa for the service. How can we expect a decent service if internet is a monopoly just like a lot of other services?
Come on Costa Rica, grow up!!!! Competition is sane. And ICE, I think it is time you start selling IPhones, and for a decent price!
Well, for now let’s keep living with this horrible service. I see my country evolving, but not as fast as I would like it to.
