Netclean to filter Talk internet


by David Allen

The problem of offensive images and content has been around for some time, and the problem of filtering out such content was highlighted a while ago when pages from Wikipedia were blocked.

To protect people, and in particular younger users of the internet, internet service providers have been looking into ways of blocking unsuitable material.

One UK ISP, Talk Internet, will be implementing the filtering system from Netclean.

This will filter out whatever the ISP puts into the Netclean system, but instead of producing a blank page there will be a page explaining why the requested page cannot be displayed.

Users will now know exactly why they are unable to access webpages, instead of thinking that there is fault somewhere.

Talk Internet will be the first UK ISP to use this solution, although it has been used in other countries such as New Zealand and Sweden.
