The UK has fewer internet freedoms than seven other countries, including Estonia and the Philippines, according to a report by Washington-based NGO Freedom House.
The ranking is based on digital freedoms, such as access to the internet and online freedom of expression laws. Estonia scores the highest, with citizens there even being allowed to vote online.
The US came second and Germany third. The UK performed badly in comparison with Estonia in terms of restrictions on online activity, surveillance and privacy, according to the Telegraph.
The report comes as a parliamentary committee hears a submission on the ” the Draft Data Communications Bill, which will make it easier for authorities to access citizens’ electronic communications, including emails, mobile calls and internet activity.
