Finn end of a broadband wedge

Interesting to note that Finland has become the first country to make broadband a legal right.  1Mbps to begin with, but they are ambitiously looking to make 100Mbps a legal right by 2015. 

As the most sparsely populated country in Europe, with an average population density of 17 inhabitants per square kilometre, it’s no doubt one of the more challenging places to connect.  That they’ve done this underlines the importance of the world wide web as a means of connecting individuals and communities.  No doubt there are people in areas of the UK who will be eyeing enviously the Finns’ right to a 1Mbps connection being enshrined in law…
