[citation][nom]jankeke[/nom]Here in Europe when I talk about this with friends, many think that telecommunications is faster and cheaper in the US. Afterall it's the USA we're taking about. Well, they get very surprised when I tell them the reality. I had trouble beleiving it too when I first heard it.Hehehe : "ass-raping us with jackhammers" what a colourful but very true way of saying things. I'll keep that one in mind for later, thanks. ^^[/citation]
Well, if you are talking voice only, I believe that it is quite a bit cheaper (based on minutes/month) in the states.
Mainly, most U.S. carriers offer inexpensive packages with unlimited (or basically unlimited) calling to all Netze during the evening and on weekends.
The data plans, however, are pure exploitation and their 3G network is pathetically slow.
