	Actually, no.

	However, the state of the local Internet access market was in a
	constant change throughout the last ten years or so.  (Before
	that, Internet access was, to my perception, quite expensive for
	the “mere humans”.)

	In particular, one of the local ISP's has recently offered twice
	the bandwidth I have for almost the same price, and they claim
	to offer a routable IPv4 for free as well.  However, the area
	for which the offer is valid is very limited at this moment.

	Unfortunately, the politicians don't do computer networks.

	And one doesn't get anything hi-tech by words alone.  There
	should be some people experienced in the problem as well.

	Well, I think that I could say that I participate, to some
	extent, in such an “activity”.  But then, I actually had to
	visit Akademgorodok twice over the past 6 months, and will
	probably have to have a trip or two in the near future.
