Porn Filter For New Internet Users

There is a lot of moving and shaking over the plan for internet service providers (ISP) to offer new users the chance to opt out from receiving adult related content. This all sounds fine until it is realised that hardly any consumer will be taking out a new contract as it is believed that only five per cent of broadband users actually change ISP’s in a quarter.

According to a statement by the four main ISP’s said;

“The four internet service providers have worked closely with government and a range of stakeholders to swiftly introduce measures addressing recommendations set out in the Bailey report.”

The statement finished off by saying;

“The ISPs have committed to improve the way they communicate to customers, enabling parents to make simple and well-informed choices about installing and activating parental controls and other measures to protect children online. The four ISPs are working with parents’ groups and children’s charities on this important initiative and will continue to do so.”

The problem is that there are already filters and systems in place on computers, but the higher settings block out all sorts of content and therefore ruining the whole surfing experience.
