DSL Price Updates

Post by Mark

DSL prices in Kuwait have gone down recently. Both Qualitynet and Fasttelco have double the bandwidth. It started off as an offer but it seems they have decided to keep this permanently. This is how much 512KB will cost you in Kuwait

Fasttelco
512kb down / 128kb up
1yr Subscription Price: KD360 ($1232)

Qualitynet
512kb down / 256kb up
1yr Subscription Price: KD380 ($1300)

Both providers are reliable, I use both of them, one at home and one at work. Sometimes a site could be blocked by Qualitynet and not by Fasttelco, and sometimes its the other way around, they mostly come out even. So if you are new in Kuwait and looking for a decent connection, get a 512kb DSL connection, the 256kb is too slow, and the 1MB too expensive, 512kb comes in nicely at around KD30 a month.

I had an invite for wordpress.com and I didn’t know what username to get. Then I remembered when I signed up to 23hq.com I was able to get the username “mark”, so I tried mark on wordpress.com and it was taken, I decided to try the next 4 letter word that came into my head which was fuck and it signed me up! I was expecting maybe a step 2 or confirmation screen but it just took the word fuck and now I am stuck with fuck.wordpress.com. I guess it’s cool…
