Hard to see how this represents good governance...
Should ISP's or other types of service providers be acting
as Internet Police for their respective governments? I don't
think so... I wonder how the majority of NZ'ers feel about
Condobolin sends in an update to the Australian government's ongoing
efforts to implement ISP-level filtering. One of the hurdles they had to
overcome was to build a system that would allow them to filter content
without impairing other internet usage.
A trial of the system has just concluded, and the results are positive
least, for the government. Quoting: "More than half of the Internet
providers (ISPs) taking part in the Federal Government's ISP filtering
have reported minimal speed disruptions or technology problems. Of the
participating ISPs, iPrimus, Netforce, Webshield, Nelson Bay Online and
OMNIconnect told ARN they had seen no slowdowns in Internet speeds or
problems with the filtering solutions in place. Of the remaining four
ISPs, Tech2U and Highway1 were unable to respond by time of publication
while Unwired and Optus refused to comment. ... 'From a technical
perspective we're more than confident that if the government decided to
roll out a mandatory Internet filter based on or around an Australian
Communications and Media Authority blacklist or subset thereof, then it
can be done without any impact whatsoever to the speed of the Internet,'
[said Webshield managing director Anthony Pillion]."
