Internet access is a human right
Most of the world’s Internet users believe Internet access is a basic human right. This is according to a
new poll conducted for the BBC. A survey of more than 27,000 adults in 26 different countries found four
out of five people believed access to the World Wide Web was a right everyone in the world needs and
should have.
The chief of the International Telecommunication Union, Dr. Hamadoun Toure, told the BBC World
Service: "The right to communicate cannot be ignored. The Internet is the most powerful potential source
of enlightenment ever created." Dr. Toure believes online access should be available everywhere. He says
that governments must "regard the internet as basic infrastructure - just like roads, waste and water." In
some countries, this has already happened. Finland and Estonia have laws saying access is a human right.
International bodies such as the UN are also pushing for universal net access.
The survey also showed how the Internet is quickly becoming a vital part of our life, all across the world.
Over 75 per cent of Japanese, Mexican and Russian people said they could not live without it. It is easy to
see why. Almost everything we do in our life today, from communication, study, work and leisure, needs
the Internet. Without access to the Web, many people would feel helpless and powerless.
Almost 80 per cent of those who took the survey believe the Web had a positive impact, with nearly four
fifths saying they have greater freedom. However, many web users were also worried about the dangers
of using the Internet. The dangers of fraud, the ease of access to violent and explicit content and worries
over privacy were the most concerning aspects for those questioned. One big surprise was that the
majority of users in Japan, South Korea and Germany felt it was not safe for them to express their
opinions online although in Nigeria, India and Ghana there was much more confidence about speaking
out.
