Finland First Country To Establish Broadband As A Legal Right

Finland! Not only do they have good universal health care—including dental—and free daycare and great public education at all levels, but now they also got broadband as a legal right provided to every citizen. And not any crappy broadband.

The policy will be active in July 2010, when every Finn will get a one-megabit connection. But that's just an intermediate step towards their final goal: By 2015, everyone will have a 100Mbps—yes, a hundred megabits per second—available.

Now, before the political debate starts in the comments, please watch this.
