Hey, bluelook, we're near ;)
I'm in Spain. Here, if you use a dial up connection, you pay only 18€/month or even less. I work with ADSL, paying 'bout 38€ (+16%) for a 256kbps connection. There are also offers like ADSL 128 + local phone calls for 27.30€, or ADSL 256 + national + provincial+ local phone calls for 48.93€ (+16%). Instead, I don't know about anny cable offer, nor wich companies offer cable connection.
I supose that in other parts of Europe it happens like that.
