I guess this varies by state largely. In Moscow suburbs, DSL costs 400 rubles (around 10 Euros) per month with 5-10 Mbps at best, asymmetrical, and fiber/cable costs about 500 (about $15) with 40 Mbps speeds, scaling quite nicely. If the infrastructure is not dismantled, but replaced, then the cost/speed ratio is better on dedicated cable.

The only problem with being a man of leisure is that you can never stop and take a rest.
