Internet access is a human right
The United Nations has itself declared that the right to access the Internet is a human right, because it is the right to access information. Also, studies in the US have shown that students who have access to high speed Internet access in their schools have better test scores in standardized tests. The students also show a better grasp of concepts learned in school. Part of this is attributed to the interactive nature of technology.
