Internet – A Human Right?

Internet – A Human Right?

The BBC World Service conducts a poll that asks is the Internet a Human Right?

Almost four out of five people suggested that access to the internet is a basic and fundamental human right on the same level as access to clean water, roads, electricity and other basic services.

The poll was conducted by the BBC World Service over 26 countries and included approximately 27,000 adults.

“The right to communicate cannot be ignored,” Dr Hamadoun Toure, secretary-general of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), told BBC News.

“The internet is the most powerful potential source of enlightenment ever created.”

He said that governments must “regard the internet as basic infrastructure – just like roads, waste and water”.

The internet has matured from an arena for geeks to a valuable resource of information and a new way of connecting with the world, but is truly a fundamental right of the individual?
