I am still in Nantucket where I reside in our house of 1927. It is a beautiful house but the internet here is too slow! In general, I could say that internet in America is extremely expensive and relatively slower compared to the Netherlands. Our house in Nantucket had Verizon for 28 years because we wanted to have broadband internet and, after all those years, I can say it was a disaster. The service often did not work, it was extremely slow (0.6 to 2.4 Mbps) and that for $84 per month! So this week I had enough of it and I called Comcast/Xfinity for cable and ordered a fast internet service. Two days later, everything was installed in an hour (because everything is above the ground) and now I have 10 times(!) faster internet for half the price. Verizon I’ve been a loyal customer but it has been enough!
