The other challenge is to provide cheaper and more reliable internet service in Ecuadors second largest city!!! Service is poor, a lot of down time, over priced for the speed offered.$55.00 a month for internet is an outrageous
price except for the average Ecuadorean to pay a month!

What sort of bandwith are we talking about here?

they use our currency...and i pay about the same hear in the states and we have access to ALOT more cable than was ever laided in the whole of south america. If the money is the same and there is really no factor of labor involved why would you expect different rates?

And on top of that, my cable internet is way slower than most of the modern world...so i ask...why is 55/month so outragous?
