GBP £34/mo (US $48) for 200 Mbps down, 12 Mbps up.  VirginMedia HFC 
(hybrid fibre cable), co-ax to the house from fibre at the end of the 
street.  Up is a little limiting at times, down is 200 Mbps except 
during the evening (20:00).  I frequently download 700 MB files (weather 
satellite data), and a couple of times a week a full Win-10 install (~4 
GB, I'm on the Windows Insider program.  No local fibre from other 
suppliers yet - I would likely change if there were a competitive offer.

That's Internet /only/ though.  It seems that Virgin don't offer 
anything alike a combined phone/mobile/Internet package.  Produces more 
income, I suppose!
