£49.99 per month for sat connection, plus £10-£15 per month for dialup ISP (plus the one off £12 activation fee, the £60 DVB TV card, and the £20 LNB for my sat. dish). Gaming doesn't really bother me...in fact, I really can't stand online gaming (prefer LANS...plus there's always a shedload of die-hard players that kick yer ass). Like I said, Satellite is my only option (apart from ISDN...but seems a waste of money to me) - I've been stuck with 56k for the past 6 years (not including the year I lived away from home and had 512k cable) and I've finally got fed up with it...I get a month's free @ 512k anyway, just to test it, but I'm sure I'll be happy with it, and upgrade to 2Mb. Plus there's the added bonus of being able to watch satellite TV through my computer (I have 2 dishes, each pointing at different sats.) - 24/7 p0rn!!
