Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

How much internet do I really need?(SOLVED)

A long time ago I got 6Mbd/l service from comcast at 30 bucks promo price that eventually went up to $55. A while back I checked my service to find that instead of lowering the price when the service got cheaper they just increased my bandwidth now I'm at around 12Mbd/l. At what point should I call them up and tell them to keep me at a certain level?

Sure I like fast d/l but do I really need it when money is so tight?

EDIT: Nevermind, called comcast and they game me half off for the next 6 months!

    Personally, I find fast download speeds to be a waste of money. It's great if you can download 12mbps as long as traffic isn't a consideration, but most ISPs also limit the amount of traffic you get per month without either incurring extra fees or getting possibly cut off due to overuse.

    The only reason I'd get a more expensive high speed internet is because it offers more monthly traffic.
