redsnapper Tech: Good UK ADSL broadband wanted (52* d) RE: Tech: Good UK ADSL broadband wanted 11 Sep 07


but the list of proscribed sites they use is supplied by the government, and how long will it be before "politically undesirable activity

BT's "Cleanfeed" list is supplied by the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) which includes the govenment as a partner and has a remit to identify illegal sites that include:

- "images of child sexual abuse hosted anywhere in the world"
- "criminally obscene content hosted in the UK"
- "incitement to racial hatred content hosted in the UK"

Since I don't visit sites of that sort Cleanfeed doesn't bother me. Information about what is and what is not within IWF's remit can be found here
Certainly there are cheaper providers but I have not had any down time with BT.
