Good piece by Martin Bryant on the problems with Cameron’s default porn filtering plan:

This post you’re reading right now isn’t pornographic, but it’s probably been blocked by lots of filters in libraries, cafés and workplaces, simply for using certain keywords. It’s almost enough to put people off criticizing these government plans for fear of losing traffic.

5 reasons the government’s anti-porn proposals are a joke

    I’ve been with 3 mobile broadband for almost 2 years (painful 2 years..). I live in Melbourne, Australia and the connection was incredibly below the 500kps minimum transfer rate printed on the product package (3 boasted that it could go up to 1.3mps which practically as good as fixed broadband). The maximum I could get (at areas indicated with service) was 150kps but most of the time 60kps. Complained to a customer guy in India but such customer service is the worst I’ve experienced in my life. They appears to be virtual (as oppose to real) for no commitment to customer service excellence at all. I’d been reminded so many times by these Indians (they like the Untouchables) that I’ve signed a contract and as such I have no option but live miserably with this junk made-in-china unit. I wish 3 would read this comment and would offer an option to me to prove that their service is not some sort of a scam where once you signed that dotted line you’re on you own and endure with dignity your worst nightmare. Being a software developer, I could barely use such questionable service of 3.
