Changes in Spain and Finland

It was interesting to read about some changes in both Finland and Spain that will guarantee some basic broadband services to residents of the two countries, making broadband a right of people in those two places.

Very cool, and very much a sign of the times, isn't it?

Makes you wonder when the rest will catch up. The US is, of course, lagging behind in this area. And yet, it is hard to be overly worried about that when there are so many places where rights that are even more basic — like clean drinking water, freedom from oppression, etc. — are neglected.

What a strange world we live in.
