German Internet users staged a 24-hour Web boycott over the weekend in protest over the country?s high access fees.
Over 6,000 sites are said to have joined in the strike, protesting that telco Deutsche Telekom?s stranglehold over telephone services gives users no choice but to use its expensive T-Online service for Net access.
The strike?s organisers are demanding that the average charge of DM5 (#1.80) per hour be reduced to a special rate of DM1 (36 pence) for Internet connections.
