The giant in my sector, a very well known giant, actually has a sub domain for each city, an those sub domains wreak havoc in the serps,
I canna afford to register som many sub domains an in many case , a page dedicated to each city, i've read elsewhere that this is okay.
My question, if I may , is does anyone know by what percentage the pages have to be different?
The sub domains of my friendly neighbourhood giant are virtually identical, doesn't prevent them from driving everyone else out from 40% of a "google", yes "google" search, using up to 10 different keyword phrases
Check with your host. It is very likely it won't cost you a thing and you won't have to deal with nameservers etc. as they handle all that.

Depending on your web server, setting up each subdomain may take a little bit of busy work, but it's certainly not rocket science. Alternatively, you can use a scripting langauge or other tools to dynamically handle the subdomains without having to add to the server configuration for each subdomain.
