The cost of buying an internet plan can vary dramatically depending on the plans’ features, and with the advent of online video, that variability has become more apparent.
But when it comes to low-price plans, the picture is less rosy.
For example, if you buy a plan for $60 a month, and it includes the cost of internet access, you will end up with a lower-than-average return on investment, according to research from research company Investec.
That’s because the more you spend on an internet service, the more money you’ll earn.
For example, the cheapest plan offers 2.5 per cent annual return, compared to 7.5 for a comparable plan.
The Investec research, conducted by the U.K.-based consulting firm Strategic Analytics, looked at data from 1,000 Canadians, and compared their savings and investment returns over a five-year period.
Using the same formula, the research found that a $60 plan could result in an investment return of 3.8 per cent for the same cost, or a 7.2 per cent return over five years.
The lowest-cost plan is 1.8 times more likely to yield a better rate of return, at 6.5 times higher.
If you can afford to spend $30 or less, a low cost plan could yield a 7 per cent interest rate.
If you need a lot more than that, the best plan to buy will offer up to 10 per cent, according the report.
The best way to find out how much you’re likely to make in the long term is to ask a customer service representative, said Stephanie Groshen, a principal at Strategic Analytics.
The fact that the savings aren’t as high on some plans as others can be due to the lower cost of the plan, Grosen said.
If your monthly bill is low, and you need to pay a lot for internet, the lowest-priced plan might not be the best choice, she said.
But there’s hope.
The new technology has helped many customers save money in the short-term, and the low cost of plans like the one I mentioned earlier has helped them to find new savings.
The more money I saved, the less money I had to pay for my cable TV, she added.
Investec also looked at the number of plans offered by different companies, and found that the best online plan was the one that provides the best return on capital for consumers, as well as a lower risk of being left behind by inflation.
For many consumers, the rise of streaming video services has meant they’re able to stream video for less money, and their savings have grown significantly.
In fact, streaming video accounts for nearly a quarter of online retail sales, according data from eMarketer.
It’s a trend that’s helped make the internet more affordable than ever before.
“The internet is now cheaper for many consumers than ever,” said Tom Durning, chief economist at eMarketers.
“That’s a good thing, and I think this will continue to help in the longer term.”

You can do this by looking at the rate at which you’re charged for internet service and compare that with other plans.
If the rate is lower than the one you pay, you’re probably getting a better deal, as you’ll be getting less for your money.
For most Canadians, the savings you’ll see are typically less than what they’d pay for a similar plan, and may even be less.
When it comes down to it, you want to save money so that you can retire early, get a decent salary and enjoy your savings, said Scott Wernick, vice president and research director at the National Consumer Law Centre.
You can also take advantage of low interest rates on loans.
Some people can get credit for up to 30 per cent of their annual income, and that can save them thousands of dollars.
The average annual rate of interest on a home loan is just 2.25 per cent.
The interest rates for credit cards are usually even lower, at about 1.5 to 1.7 per cent per year.
If it doesn’t work out, you may be able to refinance the debt.
If that happens, you’ll also get an interest rate on the new loan that’s lower than on the old loan, said Wernicker.
You may also find a better discount when it come to your car.
If a low interest rate allows you to get your vehicle financed at a lower rate, you could get an even better deal if you opt for a new car.
You should also consider whether a home improvement is a good idea.
