The Greek Telecom paradox

Although Greece is in the bottom of the list in broadband penetration, it offers free Internet access within the airport. The speed is really good and you can easily and quickly get on any workstation that are nicely spread all over the airport main terminals. It is obvious that the tourists are surprised, but really appreciate the free service as of now. As I was coming the other days from Frankfurt's airport, I saw that the Internet service's cost was 21 euros/hour, which is definetely overpriced, but normal, since everything including the food is so expensive. Besides that Athens airport is running for the Golden Pillow Award in the European region, which is a really cool achievement, since it holds the 2nd position in the list...go and vote
