Brunei's internet service is monopolized by a recently corporated company TelBru under their " [http://www.brunet.bn/ Brunet] " department. ADSL speeds range from 512 kbit/s to the maximum speed of 1 Mbit/s through ADSLbroadband. 1 Mbit/s was only recently introduced in 2006 and priced at BND$308 per month (Equivalent to Singapore currency). It is known that the Brunei's broadband ranging from 512 kbit/s to 1 Mbit/s is one the most expensive in the world. The limited market in Brunei means that development in the telecommunications sector is stagnant. Currently only about 11000 users out of a population of 380,000 have any connection to the Internet. However, more and more users are subscribing to 3G Mobile services. Broadband coverage has spanned the whole of Brunei since the release of "E-Speed 2".
