Internet users from UK are hit with very controversial news quite often. In theory UK should be one of Western examples of freedom, freedom of speech and lack of any censorship imposed on its citizens…. but that is theory. Reality is unfortunately quite different.
Some of you may remember, that back in 2013 UK Government introduced new law forcing UK ISP’s to introduce special internet filters. Idea behind it was to save children form online sex and pornography. And as a general idea, that children should not be able to easy access such content is good. However, responsibility and tools to achieve that goal should be solely in parents hands. ISP should not be responsible for how children are raised, nor for deciding what is porn, what is bad vice versa.
Until now, customers who wanted to have such filter active had to contact their ISP and ask for activation of such service. Just bear in mind (after all watching porn is considered a crime only in some courtiers – and UK is not one of them!!!), that filters of this kind prevent all devices from accessing those sits – including your device. From what we have learned only around 7% of all customers have asked for such protection. Looks like (at least for Sky customers) things will change dramatically.
In few days (did you get your e-mail already?) Sky will e-mail all its customers with question if they want to have such filters activated or not. One might think… “OK, no problem. As it is nobody’s business what I do in privacy of my own home, I will not reply”.
Well, Sky thought of that option. However, their conclusions are different. If you have not called before to ask for those internet filters to be activated and you did not react to this letter this means you want those filters – ISP site blocking to be active! Now you need to contact your ISP and let them know you like porn or…
We do not ask what sites you visit. We do not try to save you from yourselves. What we do is give you the privacy you deserve. We encrypt your internet traffic, we hide your internet journeys from your ISP. We hide your IP address from all sites and services in the internet.
Remember, only for few days more you can get 75% OFF VPN! Don’t wait – get best VPN now and don’t worry about your ISP censorship!
