Almost four in five people around the world believe that access to the internet is a fundamental right, a poll for the BBC World Service suggests.
The survey - of more than 27,000 adults across 26 countries - found strong support for net access on both sides of the digital divide.
Countries such as Finland and Estonia have already ruled that access is a human right for their citizens.
Wow. I would hate to be without the internet - it has made my life immeasurably better. However, is internet access really a fundamental human right like access to food, shelter, and medical care?

Apparently the poll was conducted by phone and by in person interviews.
