By July of next year, every citizen of Finland will have access to 1mbps broadband.
The European country said last week broadband is a legal right, superceding France’s declaration that it’s just a human right.
Finland’s Ministry of Transport and Communications also pushed up the deadline for service providers to roll out broadband to the country’s 5.3 million citizens. The original date was December 2010. Ultimately, Finland intends for its residents to have access to 100mbps Internet by 2015.
