Danish Licence Fee

A few days ago the Danish government decided that owners of computers with a TV-tuner or an internet connection should pay a yearly licence fee of 250 euros (rough estimate) - that is of course if you don't already own a TV - this is for being able to hear the national radio and watch streamed programs on the internet from among others http://www.dr.dk . I'm happy my address is at my parents (whom already pay for the TV) and I do not ever plan on owning a computer ever again, in Denmark.
Anyway my point of all this is to see how long it will take an ISP to offer a "cheap" and fast internet connection - that blocks all public service websites in Denmark and discounts the licence fee.
