Reader feedback: Cheap despite the price?

Re: Bratislava tests broadband by Dewey Smolka, April 7 - 13, Vol 9, No 13

It is good to see ADSL access possibly coming to Bratislava, but I am concerned about the rates that would be needed to support the system. Since only 10 per cent of the Slovak households currently have access to the Internet from home, the price per user has to be pretty high to support the infrastructure.

I would say that for Sk1,000 (24 euro) it is pretty cheap for 50 times faster speed than connection through a phone modem. How is the cost going to be justifiable and be affordable by a typical Slovak household?
