Internet access is considered essential to freedom of opinion and economic growth

Affordable Internet access should be a human right, because it represents political freedom and economic prosperity for many people in the world, according to a survey on Monday (24/11).
Most people also do not want a nation or any organization to manage global computer network, to prevent the eradication of freedom of speech and political expression.

But they split on who should manage it.
Survey conducted CIGI-Ipsos to 23,000 people in 24 countries, including Indonesia, was revealed in internet management committee meeting in Ottawa, Canada.

It is estimated, one-third the world's population (2.3 billion people) are connected online.

"Outstanding public support to the idea that internet access should be a human right shows how important the internet to freedom of opinion, freedom groups, social communication and new knowledge as well as economic opportunity and growth," said Fen Hampson of the commission. (BBC)
