Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Providing Internet access is just as important as other services, such as building roads, so governments should offer Internet access to all of their citizens at no cost. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
Nowadays, Internet has become in a fundamental tool for the development of our society. Personally, I think that governments must provide free Internet for all their citizens. I feel this way mainly for two reasons that I will explain in the following paragraphs. To begin with, most people need access to the Internet to do their daily activities. It is evident, that our society cannot function without it. Young people use the Internet to study and adults use it in their jobs. My personal experience is a compelling illustration of this point. Last year, my government forced people to be in quarantine to avoid the spread of SARS-COV2 in Peru. Thus, I had to work from my house. Fortunately, I had access to the Internet so I could work without any problem. If I had not had access to it, I would have not be able to continue working. It is probably that I would have been fired. Furthermore,the Internet has allow us to know more about events that occur in other countries. The Internet is an important source of knowledge for people of all ages. Obviously, if we did not have access to the Internet, we would not be able to know about what happen in the rest of the world. For instance, people can know about the war between Russia and Ukraine because of the Internet. If we did not have access to the Internet, we would have known nothing about that war. On the other hand, people who do not have access to the Internet usually face several problems to get recent information. In conclusion, I strongly believe that our governments have to give access to the Internet without any cost. This is because people require access to the Internet to continue with their activities. Moreover, the Internet has become in the main source of information for people.
