Croatia to Become 3rd Country in the World to Make High-Speed Broadband a Legal Right

 

Croatia57After Finland and Spain, Croatia will from 1 January 2015 become the third country in the world to make high-speed broadband internet access a legal right…

What the new law means is that Croatian telekom (HT), who the Croatian Telecommunications Regulation Authority declared as the“universal service” system provider, will have to make broadband available (1 Mbp) at a “reasonable” price to everyone, including people living in rural parts of the country. The new law, which comes into effect in just a few months, will see the minimum speed of 144 kbps prescribed in 2012, increase to 1 Mbp. Finland were the first to introduce the law in 2009, with Spain following suit in 2011. Croatia will be the third country in the world to introduce it.
