I called SK and it ended up being 40,000W per month only for internet.

It's 33,000W no contract + 7,000W modem rental fee (waived if you sign a 3 year contract). And a one time 30,000W installation fee.

I think this is too much.

Even with a contract it'll be whatever the base is, plus 5,000W modem rental fee (unless you sign a 3 year contract or more). The installation fee will be waived.

I'm going to look for other companies... but I think the only other good one is KT?  :cry:

this is definitely too much just for internet. i pay a little over 38k per month for 100mbps internet and a cable package with KT. to avoid the router rental fee just buy your own router, they are not too bad price-wise.

yeah i think if you don't get a contract you will pay more. i took over a 3-year contract from the previous NET.

mmmm i've never heard of it being dependent on where you live and the building. the contract i took over was for an apartment way out in the boonies, you'd think it would be more expensive there. maybe it varies by province/metropolitan area? not sure.

from what i've heard your monthly fee also varies depending on the speed you want. i think if you want 100mbps you pay more than if you get 30mbps or something like that.

I've lived in two places and cities. It does depend on where you live, what type of contract and the company.

I live in a new city in Gimpo. That's actually how its advertised. I set up my internet for just a year contract. I found a company that does one year contracts and thought that would be better than going with the bigger companies. I have cj e&m internet(?) not sure if that's the name. i guess because i live in a new area and they are trying to establish themselves i got a major discount. My internet would of been double what im paying now. I got like a 50 percent discount. In my bill it states the original price at around 37 i think and i get like 17 off.

So yes it does depend on the area. try to see other companies to compare. Or ask coworkers what they have and how much they pay. My co-teacher told me i got a good deal.
