In the interest of providing some USA data: Currently have Verizon FIOS near Boston, Mass with 100Mb/s up and down for $40.00 month. Two other options are 300 Mb/s for $60.00 month and 940 Mb/s for $80.00. All prices are 1 year introduction rates not including taxes, fees, etc.
Copper line was *removed* more than 6 years ago, so DSL is no longer an option. Local competitors are Comcast and Dish Network.

"Tom Peters in one of his "Excellence" books in the 1980s gives an example of a complex missile project that was split between three companies. Instead of a rigid interface specification for the three components - it was deliberately left to be somewhat fuzzy. The result was the components were flexible enough to fit together without too much adjustment."

Hello Thomas and welcome to BA "Fly in Comfort & Style" recruiting.
Please have a seat. That's your computer science resume is it?
OK first question, how would you design a fail-safe messaging system to be distributed across 200 critical systems. [45 minutes later] Thank you for your time Thomas.
Shirley, please send in the next applicant.
You initially built a platform to meet women and make money, but as you age you realize the limitations of what was built.
Use your money and start fresh.

Being visited by the three ghosts of Christmas is viewed more as a training opportunity and not an ethics review.

Found your habit to be a mistake.
Its easy to skip over what one believes to be false and continue reading for learning purposes. I submit errata for book typos and mistakes in published code samples.
Samsung does produce monthly updates. http://security.samsungmobile.com/smrupdate.html#SMR-OCT-2016
"Samsung Mobile is releasing a maintenance release for major flagship models as part of monthly Security Maintenance Release (SMR) process."
I have the S5-mini and 6 months between updates sounds spot on. Daughter's Verizon S6 was just updated on Sept 27 2016.
"Google is selling a Porsche in a market where the majority are settling for a Ford Focus,"
Actually Google is Ford priced in a market that is Porsche priced.
Current Google Fiber Broadband pricing:
Broadband plan features
$15 per month *
25 Mbps upload and download speeds - that's fast enough to make video calls and stream HD content
No data caps
No application process or contracts
No equipment rental or installation fees
* $15 per month plus applicable taxes. If you cancel your service, you'll need to return your equipment to a Fiber Space within 25 days of cancelling to avoid a replacement fee (including any applicable taxes).
However, Boston area Verizon FIOS 15Mbps plan is roughly $75.00 month.
Used the IIS GUI to add a https web site with self-signed cert. First time using IIS, fumbled a bit but eventually completed the task. Trying to do that task by learning/writing PowerShell scripts from scratch would have been an adventure. Thanks GUI, a choice is nice for the noobs such as me.
For the past 2yrs FIOS basic internet access, with no cable TV, was $65.99 month. Now its bumped to $69.99 bundled with basic TV, which I can't see (no cable box). There is no copper in the apartment complex, so the only choices are Verizon or Comcast.
Used to have Verizon DSL for $30.00 month. Was cheap and sufficient for my needs.

Do what video compression does, just transmit the differences from the last frame[last human transported in this case].
Or assume each teleportation receiver is manufactured with 'fundamental human state' embedded. Then you just need to transmit the equivalent of 'admiraljkb.css'. And hope the receiver wasn't manufactured by MS.
Verizon is very happy to rip out copper and install fiber in our area. My previously affordable $25.00 month Verizon DSL(copper) internet connection was replaced by the 'cheapest available' $65.00 month Verizon FIOS internet connection. And my only choices were Comcast or Verizon [shot or stabbed].
Sorry you're having problems. I currently own a Samsung S5 Mini (on Verizon) KitKat 4.4.2 not rooted. Have moved apps, downloaded from PlayStore, onto my 8GB microSD. Also loaded 6GB of music from my PC onto the SD card. You can pull the end off the power charging cable to reveal a USB 2 connector. Plug that into the PC(Windows 7) and transfer files directly to the SD card. Cheers!
For NZ <--> US, they probably would do exactly that. For EU <--> Africa? Probably not. I feasibility and likelihood of cable taps would - to me at least - depend on which cables we're talking about.
