100Mbps Internet to become legal right in Finland

Posted on Thursday, October 15 2009 @ 16:58:02 CEST by

Finland's Ministry of Transport and Communications has declared broadband a legal right, starting in July 2010 every person in Finland will have the right to a one megabit broadband connection, and the government claims that by the end of 2015 every person will have the right to a 100Mbps Internet connection.
As reported over on Gizmodo, the move is designed to ensure that Finnish citizens don't fall victim to the so-called "digital divide," where well-off citizens have access to all the benefits of the Internet while poorer residents are cut off from the Web and all the opportunity it offers.

While Finland was beaten to the punch by Switzerland, which has already made a similar move to enshrine a legal right to broadband Internet access by ensuring that all citizens would have access to a minimum of 600Kb/s downstream and 100Kb/s upstream by 2008, it's a smart move by the government - and puts the country miles ahead of most European countries, including the UK.
