Prices of DSL goes, rather up.

DSL Speeds and prices around the world went up 4.7% and 9.3% during the first quarter of 2008. The average price for a residential DSL connection at the end of Q1 2008 was $61.36 a month, while the speed was 6.52 Mbps. The Business DSL connections cost $227 a month for a speed of 4.13 Mbps.

The big change came as a result of big boosts provides by Latin American carriers, who boosted residential speeds by 36% to 2.74 Mbps. Telecom Argentina and Telefonica del Peru boosted speeds. From the other hand, the rates for FTTx and cable services have not changed much. The Cable companies – actually this is a US phenomenon – have not changed much.
