Carphone warehouse reject download pressure<br />

It must be satisfying for the subscribers of Talk Talk broadband to hear the Chairman of the Carphone Warehouse, Charles Dunstone saying that he cannot see his company ever voluntarily disconnecting any of the subscribers on the basis of what a third party has said. This is a bold move from him considering that the government have put the wheels in motion to ban illegal downloader’s from the internet.

This is Talk Talk’s reaction to the decision from Virgin Media who will be implementing the three strikes and you’re out policy. Talk Talk believe that as an ISP they provide users with internet access. They are not in control of the internet or what their subscribers choose to do while connected to the internet either.

Dunstone believes that the music industry has failed to embrace the changes in technology and how users of the internet prefer to buy products like music. He goes on further to say that the Carphone Warehouse would not be co-operating in this matter despite any threats of legal action.
