VIENNA (AP) - An international review showing wide variances of Internet freedom gives Finland the best marks for making citizens' access to a broadband connection a legal right.
But the 225-page report also expresses concern about the level of blocking practices encountered in some of the 56 states of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe.
The report, published Friday, notes that Turkey has decided to introduce a mandatory Internet filtering system effective Aug. 22.
It said this would be the first such restriction within the OSCE region, which encompasses Europe, Russia, North America and central Asian states.
The report was presented at OSCE headquarters in Vienna.
