And the good news is that none of the major players are involved.If you use Primus, Tech 2U, Webshield, OMNIconnect, Netforce or Highway 1 as your gateway to the world wide wed, you may want to contact your ISP and let them know you don’t want to play in their filtering sandpit.
It’s kind of strange that none of the big ISPs were involved – Telstra didn’t offer to partake, so that makes sense, but both Optus and iiNet said they’d play (although Optus wouldn’t test P2P filtering), so their omission feels kind of strange. Maybe it had something to do with iiNet saying they’d partake just to debunk the filter’s plausibility?
The trials are set to run for a minimum of six weeks once all the filtering hardware has been installed. For customers of these ISPs, I reckon that six weeks won’t be over soon enough.
