5. If the price of broadband increased in price by the following amounts would you consider giving up broadband
a. $10
b. $20
c. $30
d. $40
e. $50+

6.If the price of the broadband plan you are currently on had an increase of price by the following amounts would you consider changing to a cheaper plan even if it means you would have a smaller data cap?
a. $10
b. $20
c. $30

Some general questions
