详解： 题型分类：应不应该题 论证角度：利弊分析 观点选择：让步
With the advent of information age, the Internet has profoundly influenced every aspect in modern people’s life. Under such a background, how does the government play its role? Should the government offer Internet access to citizens at no cost? These questions trigger a heated debate in society. From my perspective, the Internet access, like other important public services, is supposed to be available to the public free of charge. I am going to elaborate my viewpoint in the following paragraphs. (80 words)
Firstly,charge-free strategy allows more people to enjoy internet-based public services. Under the encouragement of cost-free policy, an increasingly number of people are willing to get access to the Internet and then benefit from government services optimized by the Internet. For example, in my country, people used to have real difficulty in buying train tickets especially during holiday seasons. In order to successfully buy the tickets, they had to wait in line in poorly ventilated place for hours. But now, things have changed a lot. They book tickets online very quickly and use their ID card to check in at the train station. (103 words)
Secondly, the economy will be stimulated attributed to free Internet access. Once the government makes the Internet access available to the public free of charge, it can be estimated that e-commerce will grow in leaps and bounds. More people will choose to start up business online and a great many job opportunities will be created, which also give impetus to the development of relevant industries such as logistics. The success of Alibaba perfectly mirrors the positive impacts of the Internet on the economy. If the government offer free Internet access to all citizens, there will be more enterprises like Alibaba emerging one after another. (104 words)
Of course, we have to admit that free Internet access will bring tremendous pressure on government budget. After all, the construction of network, similar to building other major infrastructure, is a huge project that consumesintensive labor and funds. However, the government can cover the expenditure via other ways including levying a tax on profitable internet-based business. (57 words)
In conclusion, making the Internet access free of charge is a valuable and far-reaching effort for the government. In tide of the third industrial revolution in human history brought by the Internet, the government should play a greater role in leading its people to embrace this new age. (48 words)
