What do we want? Broadband! When do we want it? When our reindeer steaks are ready! We are currently being visited by a houseguest from Finland, and when she returns back home, she can prepare for the day when she can exercise a basic human right.

Well, some think so:

Come July 2010, every Fin will have access to a 1 Megabit-per-second broadband connection. Finland just became the first country in the world to sign a law that provides every citizen of the country with a legal right to a broadband connection.

But the Finnish experience may not necessarily extrapolate to other areas, since Finland has high urban concentrations compared to, say, the United States.
