Hello /g/, 3rd worlder here. The internet in my country is too slow, my internet connection is 256Kb/s, so my download speed is something around 25KB/s. The whole country's connection comes through undersea cables. How can this be fixed? How much does an Internet satellite cost? And how long will it take?
>mfw i live in cairo
>mfw i pay 30pounds monthly
>mfw my download speed is 512 kp/s
>mfw being the masterrace here
Egypt deserves shitty internet like that. I went there once and it was far too hot and the place was like a huge trash can had been kicked over.
Stop GIMPin your advertisement pictures to look nice and clean, oh and hire some fucking people to clean up you flip flop wearing dune coons.
come here mate, what can be worse than syrians anyway.
>High speed net
Why the fuck does Turkey get everything? I am mad as hell right now, all we got is some stupid chai and cricket.
Actually, OP, you shouldn't listen to these /pol/ autists (as an European, excuse us for them).
They're full of shit. You can easily get speeds up to 1 Mbit/s with satellite internet. Even faster speeds are possible if your company uses the Ka band. The problem is that it will be expensive. I'd say it will be roughly 4 times more expensive than regular internet (by Belgian prices). Setting the dish etc. up is not too hard either if you know what you're doing. It should only take up an hour or two.
So yeah, if you have the money to burn I'd suggest just contacting an Egyptian company or franchise that is specialised in satellite internet.
That said there are still some tricks like
- changing your DNS server (for example to a Google one)
- getting a high quality filter box if you have DSL
- making sure that the reservable bandwidth of your system is limited
to make your internet a bit faster (all the little bits will count)
Good luck, anon!
The problem isn't with the physical cables coming into your country,see map.
Its isps making being greedy with speeds and bandwidth.
Even in the uk i used to have a 10 gigabyte a month package until recently and I have fiber in my area but can't get a package without a 2 year contract.
All after my country's largest state owned isp was paid millions by the european union to install it.
And we made that fucking spyware program finfisher, that your country used to spy on its citizens when it was a dictatorship.
>sorry about those faggots t. brit
americans shouldn't be let near a computer

get uget as a download manager for downloads.
get justseed.it seedbox to download torrents remotely and then download via https.
(20GB/USD$0.19 | 200GB/USD$0.99 | 1TB/USD$2.99)
run download and run opera as your browser www.opera.com and turn on off road browsing mode to proxy and compress pages so they load quicker.
ISPs everywhere are the worst. They are just as evil as big oil or pharmaceutic companies.
If I were president I'd expropriate all their posessions and distribute them at random between all citizens, and I bet we'd still get better service.
You're telling me, I live in some third world shit hole
where I'm paying for 100Mbps and I've been averaging
7Mbps down for a year now. These bastards couldn't care
less. Wish I was a wizard so I could fuck with their systems.
He'd be an idiot everywhere though. We've been able to get unlimited for donkeys now. Even in the late 2000s when they stopped advertising unlimited, you could threaten to leave because of the limit and they'd put you on their hidden unlimited contract. Main problem now poor speeds during peak time in adsl8mps areas.
the problem is that ISP don't make money. the economy of scale is way off because the infrastructure for high-speed broadband is so expensive to install, upgrade and maintain.
