Karl Bode writes for Motherboard, “While many countries and corporations treat broadband as just another exploitable resource, experts have been making the case for years that internet access is better viewed as a fundamental utility—essential for free expression and a healthy democracy.” Bode shares that a new U.K. study “takes the argument one step further, arguing that internet access is a basic human right that should be provided for free to those who can’t afford it.”
