I do not know if this particular model from the ISP side will be viable or not

those accessing. Even though it will be a standard local dial number the
of revenue they can obtain from the telco will be sufficient income to support

Surely this model is going nowhere. In Europe we already pay too much
for local Internet access in phone charges. If anything deregulation /
competition means local call costs should come down. (or am I just over
optimistic) Doesn't leave much icing on the cake for the ISP - and I
understand its very thin as it is
