In a scary forshadowing of what may well happen here, Finland’s Ministry of Transport and Communications has made 1-megabit broadband Web access a legal right – but even worse,  Finland has also said it would make a 100Mb broadband connection a legal right by the end of 2015.

As we reported previously, the Federal Communications Commission is currently examining a national broadband policy in the United States.

Despite the fact that the success of the internet has been driven completly by the free-market, it looks like government planners just can’t help themselves.
