So not only do we pay some of the most expensive ADSL costs in Europe, we now have an additional tax to pay on top! (If we’re in Catalunya, but I expect other regions will follow).
The tax is charged to ISPs, who must pay for each subscriber. They, in turn, will charge their users the tax via their bills.
The tax is supposed to be used to subsidise Catalan language audiovisual programmes, and is expected to raise 20,5 million euros a year.
