Access to information for all

I am sitting on the beach in a coastal town in the east of Spain availing of free wifi and newspapers courtesy of a local council mobile library. How pleasant (if you can cope with the screeching from the kids at a nearby play area – it seems every Spanish kid’s right is to be as loud and wild as possible).  It strikes me that free broadband access  should be the norm across Europe. I recall plans by Westminster Council for free local broadband hubs but am not sure what came of them. Information is power?
