High Speed internet now a legal right in Finland

Holy Shizer.

Those Scandinavians.

Gizmodo reports that Finland has just declared high-speed internet access is a legal right. From the story:
The policy will be active in July 2010, when every Finn will get a one-megabit connection. But that's just an intermediate step towards their final goal: By 2015, everyone will have a 100Mbps—yes, a hundred megabits per second—available.
Read the full story here.

No wonder Forbes deemed Finland the second happiest place on earth. (After Denmark, but I'm sure that with this improvement, it will shoot to first.)

Apparently, even their Halloween is more fun. It's held at Easter and involves bonfires.
