Internet : Fundamental right of the Finnish

Finland has become the first country to make broadband Internet a fundamental right for its citizens. Not that it means every is gonna get free access. Rather he / she can sue a provider who refuses to get a connection provisioned stating location, non presence, etc. 

What's more! The right is for1 Mbps speed broadband. The government has also promised a 100 Mbps connection to every citizen by 2015.

The underlying significance of this legislation that the Finnish government has passed is simple. Internet has become such a powerful presence in our lives today that the government considers just as basic for civilized human living as electricity or drinking water. 

No one would argue against that!
