Finland offer 100 meg broadband to everyone

finland broadband, finland 100mbps, finland human rightThe government of Finland has just announced plans to offer a 100 megabit broadband connection to every home and business in Finland!

This follows on from their declaration last year; that a broadband Internet connection is a human right – and that every home in Finland will have a minimum 1 megabit per second connection.

100 megabit connection by 2015

The plan is for every home or business is to be within 2 kilometres of a super fats, 100 megabits fibre connection. Whilst some homes will need to face the cost of that last 2 kilometres of fibre, it’s an opportunity that’s a pipe dream (sorry for the pun) for most of us.

When you consider that the population of Finland is under 6 million, yet its population is spread over an area that’s roughly the same size as the UK and Ireland combined, this is quite a project.
