The Finns really love their Internet.
A new law makes access to braodband a legal right in Filand. When it goes into effect in July 2010, each Finn will be guaranteed a one-megabit broadband connetion, according to Finland’s YLE, via Huffington Post.
Finalnd is the definitely the broadband right leader — it’s the first country to pass such a law.
By 2015 each citizen will have a right to 100 megabits per second.
Perhaps more countries will start to follow Finland’s lead. After all, many of us already consider access to decent broadband a need right up there with food and water.
