Good Internet Monday - Finland

That's right, the entire country of Finland is today's GIM.

Why? Because starting next July, broadband internet is no longer a privilege but a right. Every citizen will have broadband access. By 2015, the speeds will be up to 100Mb.

If there's one way to improve the general education level of a populace, it's to provide them access to the world's largest database. This is a fantastic step for Finland.

Of course, we'd never get that here. That would be socialism.

  1. I think I need to convince the government that my poor ass needs health care before they give me broadband...

    but hey, one step at a time, right?

    Either way, Monty Python was right... Finland-- it's the country where I want to be!
