Broadband Access Becomes Legal Right In Finland

Starting next July 2010, every person in Finland will have the right to a one-megabit broadband connection. Finland’s Ministry of Transport and Communications has made 1-megabit broadband Web access a legal right, YLE, the country’s national broadcasting company, reported on Wednesday.The government had already decided to make a 100 Mb broadband connection a legal right by the end of 2015. According to the Helsinki Times when it reported the 100Mb target last year, the Finnish government said that no household “would be farther than 2 kilometers from a connection capable of delivering broadband Internet with a capacity of at least 100 megabits of data a second).  Some variation will be allowed, if connectivity to some remote locations can only be arranged through mobile phone networks.

Finland is the world’s first country to create laws guaranteeing broadband access. Earlier this year France has made Internet access a human right.
