BT Broadband Will Block Porn By Default For New CustomersUK ISP BT Broadband has taken the step to block all access to porn by default if you happen to be a new customer. This should not be seen as a particularly new move, since from earlier this summer, there were whispered changes that were to be made for Web users in the UK. UK Prime Minister David Cameron has supported the rather extensive campaigning by special interest groups over the last few years, for internet service providers (ISPs) to block access to adult content by default, and if they refuse, a new legislation would force them to do so.

I do not see what is the issue here, as it is not as though users are unable to opt out of such content blocks should they choose to view adult content over the Internet. Basically, for new BT Broadband customers, when they are hooked to the Internet for the first time, they will have to choose whether to leave the block enabled or not, and anyone who does not opt out at that point in time will be able to check out the range of content that they are able to access via a compatible device such as a PC, tablet, smartphone or notebook. Three levels of protection, namely Strict, Moderate and Light make up this porn blocking effort, where each level can be customized accordingly. Every time a change to the settings are made, an email will be sent to the account holder to alert them of the changes made.
