Liberty Equality and Internet access

Finland has become the first country in the world to make broadband internet access a legal right. While countries like France have declared guaranteed web access a human right, Finland is the first country to codify the provisions into a law. The Ministry of Transport and Communication has drafted a legislation, which will come into effect from July 2010, that makes access to a 1 Mbps broadband connection a legal right for all its citizens. The Government intends to increase the speed of the connection to 100 Mbps by 2015, says the Transport and Communications Minister Suvi Linden.
