To the Microsoft 10 users, How is the new windows 10? fast? efficient? secure?
What are the goods and the bads?
Would you recommend?
What worries and confuses me is that its states, "Internet fees may apply"
what do they mean by that?

Good. Yes. Yes. Yes.
Why Windows 10?
Continuum for tablet / desktop switching
Cortana - your personal assistant
Edge Browser (IE 11 is still installed if you need it for backwards compatibility)
Windows apps on the desktop
Improved built-in apps, e.g.
Mail, Maps, Calendar, Photos, News, Weather, Sports
Office apps now available from the Store
Improved Search capability - in the PC and across the web
Improved Settings app and control panel
Action Center / Notification Center
File Explorer improvements
Windows Store improvements
Phone Companion - Links your phone to the PC and other services.
Task View and multiple desktops - Task switcher
Windows snap to quickly enable multiple side-by-side windows
Automatic updates and continual improvements as Windows as a Service kicks in.
More secure and resilient
Scheduled restarts if a reboot is required
Improved Command Prompt window
DirectX 12 for better performance in games
Support app - find online tips or chat with Microsoft support online (everyone who upgrades to Windows 10 gets a free 15 minute support phone call to Microsoft).
Much easier for developers to port an application from iOS or Android to Windows.
Device Guard, which prevents applications from running unless they are recognised.
Windows Hello, for biometric authentication.
Secure Boot, which prevents malicious software from loading while a computer boots, thereby potentially compromising the operating system as soon as it starts.

I would recommend keeping the Windows version you are already running with infinitely fewer problems.
If you feel strongly about getting Win 10, I would wait until at least January, and even better, March. The upgrade will still be free and many of the bugs will have been worked out by then.

Many people have experienced problems after upgrading to W10. I would not upgrade a computer if its availability is important to you. If you can afford to have the computer potentially out of action until a fix is found or you roll back to the previous version, then go ahead and try it, but if you need to be sure of a continuous service from your computer either stick with the previous version for a while and maybe do not upgrade at all.
