    Outdated, they simply haven't bothered to update from the looks of it.

    Also, those prices are excluding vat.

    Do you mean they were providing connection with that price in past? So that will mean bandwidth price has been increased!
    Yes, excluding vat. 15% vat will not make 1Mbps price to 3400 taka.
    Wish I could get one connection with that price

    Why are you guys getting so excited? These prices were posted in the days of shared internet, didn't you notice the column heading says "speed upto"?

    At least the good thing about now is that with the exception of crappy local ISPs, we mostly get the speeds advertised (BL, Qubee, Ollo, Link 3 and BTCL)...

    Hm? Nope.

    70-80 atm, it used to be 110~, they capped us again.

    Oh well, not much options for me.

    Do you get 70-80 dl speed with 1mbps line? Then it must be very poor speed.

    It's not 1mbit, it's 512.

    I'm fine with it, and nothing else is available where I live.

    Well I guess you are using package Gold, according to website, it should be 1mbps. I am totally confused with this hide and seek :S If that is 512kbps, then why did they write it as 1mbps? when I called local provider in uttara, that guy told me that, I will get above 70kB dl speed with diamond, which supposed to be 2 mbps. could you please give me a number where I can talk with someone from smile to make it clear, if possible?

    You'll get 150~ or so KB/s if you can take the connection directly from Smile in Diamond. Resellers = thieves, enough said.

    I don't have the number here, but I think @coldfire7 can help.
