Is making the "Internet a human right" enough?

It was interesting to read in the Hearld Sun on the 12th of December 2014 in Sydney the following article:

Basically the scientist Tim Berners-Lee who is credited with inventing the WWW has called for affordable access to the Internet to be recognised as a human right. It was even pointed out that billions of people still cannot go online and that censorship is on the rise.

Although censorship is a separate issue itself - I consider web content being made accessible a greater issue. Web content needs to be accessible for everyone. No point making "access to the Internet a human right" where only a certain amount of the population can actually read, browse and interact with the content effectively.

At we go beyond just accessibility and am striving to enable everyone who browses the web to have a phenomenal web experience.
