Online demands for freedom of expression increase with Internet access

According to a World Bank blog ‘Media (R)evolutions: As Internet access expands, demand for freedom of expression online also increases‘, a Pew Research Center survey finds that most people in 32 of 38 countries polled say it is important to live in a country where people can use the Internet without government censorship. In spite of an apparent global decline in Internet freedom, 50% of those polled not only still embrace fundamental democratic values, including the right to free speech, but consider them of high importance.
