On January 11th 2006, Public Netbase was told by the City of Vienna's culture department that any subsidy for the group's basic activities was to be eliminated with immediate effect. On the same day, all of the group's workers were dismissed. This was followed by a dismantling of the organization, marking the end of Public Netbase's 12-year history. http://www.netbase.org/t0/intro/01
