How fast/slow is your internet connection?
100 MBit/s downlink, 40 MBits/s uplink (testing shows that those values are actual usable values and not something "up to").

Is it cable, fibre or a telephone line? Or wireless?
Since there was some mismanagement (by the government?), this is run on newly layed copper cables via VDSL instead of using fiber right away.

Is is unlimited or data capped?
Unlimited. Last month, we had traffic of ca. 1.5 TB, so I'm glad there is no cap.

Do you have any choice of Internet Service Providers (ISP) in your district?
We have plenty of providers (ours is Telekom, then there is Vodafone, 1 & 1, O2, Kabel Deutschland, and a lot of others), some for (TV) cable, some for (telephone) cable, some for LTE etc. and even some for satellite. It is only that the new copper cables are only availible for some ISP because they have to pay for their usage.

What do you pay (monthly) for your connection?
I'm not sure exactly, it should be around 35 € to 40 €, including phoning flatrate.

Are you happy with your current provider?
Currenty, I'd give 9/10 or even 9.5/10.
