How much is the Internet service in Poland?

12 Sep 2009 /  #1
Can someone please help? I just wanted to know how much is the average cost of Internet service in Poland.
Hi speed internet that is. (like DSL in the USA) or faster.
Thank you in advance.

My DSL connection costs 74PLN a month. I live in a village so it may be cheaper in the larger towns and cities.

512k starts at around 40 pln / month it may be cheaper of you sign up for over a year etc,

Note that depending on where you live there might not even be DSL available. I have got 512kb/s and can't upgrade because that's the fastest they can give me given the quality of the phone line to my house.

There was a thing on the news recently about how some places don't have any access at all - including a street ironically named "internet street".

I've got a 20Mb fibre optics internet provider pretty close to my place and it's around 60zł

Wow! Compared to Houston, here in the US, you guys have a privileged internet service.
I pay 59 US$ for Internet service a month. This is because I connect using the broadband antenna from a cell phone company. Only because it allows me to connect with my laptop from anywhere in the city. But it is not unlimited. (Only 5 Gb per month).

I wanted to switch to a regular hi-speed service, which is (the cheapest one) 40$ a month. Plus taxes.
I am glad that in Poland, the internet is faster and cheaper... This is going to be great!. I might be going to Poland for a while and I needed Internet for sure.

Thanks for your responses.

naah.. I don't think that it's faster, but things are changing slowly those fibre optics internet providers are secluded cases in bigger cities - and even with that they are not available on every street. The most popular type of connection is a 1Mbit adsl with a crappy upload. Internet providers based on mobile phones celluar networks just started off - it's a pretty fresh technology here..

But be careful of Play Mobile (sometimes PlayOnline) - they have frequent system problems, like today when customers can't top up their accounts, and their customer service department can only be called macabre.
