There is a 5-year transition period where you can continue to remain exempt. Opt out, - that way you don't have to pay it.
I wouldn't qualify, as I do have internet access and a laptop.


Seriously: I don't mind a state sponsored TV, but I do mind a waste of public money.


This whole SERAFE (as did Billag) adds so much unneeded bureaucracy and B$, and the extra SERAFE cost doesn't exert any additional benefit, i.e. control over how the money is spent.


If needs be, they might as well raise VAT by 0.1 or 0.3%, whatever yields a similar amount, and then pay the costs from this revenue.


It would defo save quite an amount of hassle.
