Beltelecom, the Belarus state telco, has introduced ADSL in Minsk and plans to extend the service to regional cities later this year.
Currently the service is only on offer to government bodies, ISPs, judicial bodies, and educational institutions.
Fees for the service depend on the speed of connection chosen by the user - 1kbit/sec. will cost E5/month for ISPs and judicial bodies and E2/month for educational and governmental institutions.
In 2001, Beltelecom prevented providers from introducing ADSL by refusing to settle the issue of telephone line ownership
