The download speed you need depends primarily on how you use the internet, and how much you download to your hard drive (e.g., pictures, applications, music and movies). A minimal user needs only the first or perhaps the second tier of service. One can characterise the "minimal user" as having the following characteristics: uses the Internet to read and send E-mails, chat with friends and family, pay bills, order goods on-line, read news, get information. All of these activities do not use graphics that require higher download speeds to be satisfactory. The same can be said for monthly download limits, especially if one uses the Internet for only a few hours a day or week.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
