Is the Web a Fundamental Right?

Reuters is reporting that a BBC survey reveals that four out of five respondents believe the web is a fundamental right and not just a privilege. 78% of 27,000 respondents in 26 countries said that the web gave them greater freedom. Intriguingly 65 percent were concerned about expressing themselves freely on line. Over half of the respondents felt the Internet should not be regulated in any way.

No matter how you look at this, it shows just how much the web has become a part of our daily lives. So how do you feel about this? Is accessing the web a fundamental right, or is it a privilege?
