IrelandOffline signs “Declaration of Internet Freedom”
IrelandOffline agree with the concept of a free Internet as outlined by http://www.internetdeclaration.org/freedom which states that the Internet remain free, open, uncensored, private, affordable and innovative. Our main reason for signing this declaration is point 2 “Promote universal access to fast and affordable networks” but we agree with the other points of the declaration too.
The Preamble to the Declaration explains: “We believe that a free and open Internet can bring about a better world. To keep the Internet free and open, we call on communities, industries and countries to recognize these principles. We believe that they will help to bring about more creativity, more innovation and more open societies. We are joining an international movement to defend our freedoms because we believe that they are worth fighting for.”
We agree that these issue are worth standing up for and being counted and we hope you will too, please take action and support this initiative.
This would be ideal, but in this country even paying for an internet service is no guarantee of it being provided.
