What's it like living in a place like that?

Being from the arse end of the world means that we only really see what it's like on TV.

Better yet, be a student in Finland. I can upload up to 18 terabytes of data per month for free (no quota, just the maximum throughput of my router).

There is no 25/5. They have 15/5, 25/25 and 50/20.
