In some countries in Europe such as Germany, for example, there are quite a number of offers for daily 3G Internet access now in the range between €2.50 to €5.00. Especially €2.50 offers sound quite cheap, almost like network operators giving their services away for free. But how much is that compared to the daily fee of a DSL line at home? Let's compare with a DSL line that costs €30 per month. That would be €1.00 a day. In other words, there's still a premium for wireless in the daily charge. So while it sounds cheap, summing up €2.50 over 30 days brings you to €75. That's quite a sum so it quickly pays to go for a monthly option if mobile Internet access is required for more than just a few days per month.

I wonder how much DSL would be on a per-day basis 😉
15 Euro per month for a 3G data service works out cheaper than a monthly DSL line (assuming you are happy with rate and bit limits)and in some cases has no contract commitment.
One of the best deals I’ve found in Germany is Fonic who, as you know, use the Telefonica/O2 network. It’s 2.50 per day with a 25 Euro per month maximum charge.
In case you wonder why I have 30 Mbps on a 50 Mbps line, here is a speedtest to a closer server (note the ping, to DSL can do that): http://www.speedtest.net/result/968874642.png
Congratulations to Alex, but DSL and cable are clearly dominant in western Europe
Personally I have 8M DSL, and that is in fact more than enough for a non-nerd internet usage.
Here’s what the report from the link above says:
–Strong FTTB build-out to East led by Russia,
–North and east Europe generally leading, and these look set to continue to lead through the next two years
That’s exactly what I see here.
Hey. I found another good speedtest I’d like to share with you.
I really like the graphics 😉
