So how did you manage to pull that one off? Plus 50Mb/s!? Xfinity is only rated to get up to 10Mb/s (which is what I have) and mine is fiber-optics, so you are going to be having a T1 or T3 connection!?

That would be a T3 I'd guess, considering the average speed a Virgin Media customer receives in the UK is 47Mbps on the 50Mbps package. Plus it only costs ?48.90 ($76) including line rental. It's all fiber-optic and BT have just erected a fiber-optic exchange box outside the neighbours house which probably helps. I think there planning on pushing a 100Mbps to residential areas and 1Gb to the city center come mid next year as part of a scheme to improve Britain's internet services.

It is quite nice, but it's still costly.
I'm currently earning cash by doing software testing, currently got $90 waiting to be paid on the 1st but should have more than that come the actual date, that why I'm gonna end up buying it. Hoping to become a gold tester which can reach amounts of $1000 to $10000 per month.

For alot of people, even $1000 a month is alot of money. Even couples that work full time in fast food don't make that much put together.

In Britain the minimum wage is ?6.08ph for someone over the age of 21 that equates to $9.52ph.
I've just looked at the minimum in Michigan and it $7.40 which is ?4.72, now that's a rather large wage gap and is lower than the minimum for 18-20 year olds here.
How can there be such a wage gap in such civilised countries?
I didn't think that Britain and North America would be so far different in earning capacity, but I really feel for the people over there who can only just earn enough to live. Although from what I hear, It's more expensive to live in Britain.

$7.40 is the starting wage for most jobs, but that is also for any age. Raises also come by about 2x a year. It also increases with promotions. The ? is also worth more than the US dollar as well, so that also has some impact. And it may be more expensive to live in Britain, but some places in the states are also pretty expensive too, that and we also get taxed on almost everything we can get or do here.

There are not perks to look forward to like raises here. You only get more money, if you can get a higher position.
The pricing here is ridiculous by any means, a one bedroom flat or apartment could set you back ?400-?500 and month without utilities included. Then if you need a car, your looking at around ?1.38 for a litre of fuel and dependent on age, I'll go with 17-20, your probably going to be paying around ?1300 on car insurance per year.
Hows the pricing on those these things over there?
