Internet access - a 'legal right' like water and power.

    Two states...... two perspectives.... !!

    The UK's Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport announced the decision on Dec. 20, noting that the government will require internet providers to give "everyone access to high-speed broadband by 2020" — much like an electric or water utility.

    Here in India 4G connectivity is performing poorer than 3G. Thanks to Jio and others, they are misguiding the mass by offering quantity i.e. 100GB Data free instead of Quality i.e. Speed.

    Today, we believe that all people must be able to access the Internet in order to exercise and enjoy their rights to freedom of expression and opinion and other fundamental human rights, that states have a responsibility to ensure that Internet access is available to each individual and it should not only be an opportunity for companies to make huge profits.
