So after posting a short comment about Finland earlier today, I came home and flicked through the first few pages of this weeks edition of TIME.
Forget life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. How about the right to high speed internet? One Oct 14, Finland announced plans to ensure that the 5.3 million citizens have access to to a 1 megabit per second broadband connection by July 2010 and a 100 megabit per second connection by 2015. Government officials say Finland is the first nation to make broadband access a legal right.
I was impressed when our current government realised that broadband was important to our countries future prospects. However this leaves us for dead.
