Thread: Can i get an ISP service of another country?

  1. #1
    All ISP services are very crappy where i live both in down/up speed and in down/up speed ratio (the best service here is 6Mbit download with 600kbit upload and its quite pricey too). so i was wondering if there is a possibility for me to acquire the service of an ISP of another country or an international ISP (if such a thing exists), or am i better off with purchasing a dedicated server/seedbox? sorry if im mixing a lot of irrelevant things together, im still new to this stuff...

    Thanks

    would it work well if im living in the middle east? and do they provide both the internet service and the modem,wiring, satellite etc.?
    is there another alternative apart from satellite?

    Satellite broadband now that's an interesting idea. Unfortunately you can only get astra-net if you live in 1 of 3 countries.

    Astra doesnt seem like a practical solution, it probably doesnt work where i live and in any case, from what i understand it uses your current ISP to deliver their service, but when your ISP limits your speeds it doesnt realy help....
    Also i dont even know whats the down/up speeds Astra offers.
    is there any other (practical) solution you can offer?

    First off, the only way to use an international or foreign service to connect to or use on the Internet is via satellite. DSL, Cable and standard dialup access are all bound to national and local owners therefore your choice is limited.

    Well, ordering and using a satellite internet offer from another country can work if you are inside the satellite broadcast range. A friend of mine did that a few years ago as there were no such offers in Austria yet and despite the prize, he has been happy about it.

    But that aside, you'll probably never be satisfied enough with those offers (assuming you're living somewhere in Europe) because they are rather expensive (i.e. 1MBit/s = 30 €). The cheapest offer I know is skyDSL with an offer of 50 € for a 4MBit/s Flatrate (plus an option for 24MBit/s with additional transfer fees).

    If you think this over, your local ISP with the 6144/600 offer might just be the best solution because you're also saving yourself some trouble.

    Depending on what your goals are, you might just want to rent a seedbox or try Usenet access if you have trouble keeping ratios.

    Your better off getting a dedicated server/seedbox. However to transfer the files (download them to your computer) all depends on your isp download speed.
