zain prices are between 14 and 80 monthly and 140 to 800 yearly. the speed is between 128kbps and 8mbps
their website : www.jo.zain.com

umniah prices are between 150 and 550 and the speed is between 256kbps and 8mbps

i currently use a 2mbps from orange for 30 jds a month.
it is very good and i get unlimited download after midnight.

about mobiles
the providers are umnia,orange and zain
zain and umniah i think have most of the market share and orange is usually used by government workers.
i have 2 lines zain and umniah:

zain's advantages:
1-best network signal
2-almost everyone is a user of zain

disadvantages:
1-high prices
2-i tried their customer support and i didn't like it

umniah's advatnages:
1-lowest prices
2-lowest international calls prices

disadvantage:
1-sometimes the network is very poor but its good enough when you are in the city
*didn't try their customer support

i had internet when i was in jordan...and they have this thing called a download limit....which is another way to scam people..i mean i never heard of that in my life until i went there...and if your watching youtube..and want to let another video load up it cuts your speed in half....jordan is still way behind on internet technology...i mean a download limit come on...thats a joke...and they try to make it better by saying after midnight its free....well i dont use the net after midnight so what do i benefit from it...

moud23 ,I agree with you,it scam,just another way to make money,When I was in the States I never heard of it ??!!
I had  UMNIAH net for 3 years  and I loved it but I am trying new
company calls BLUEZONE...
I have UMNIAH Modem 49JD worth,I don't need it any more since I switch the net if any one wants to buy it for 25 JD please let me know...
Thanks
Chris
