Filters getting turned on from ISPs Telstra and Optus mid next year

Not as extreme as Labour's mandatory filter at least

It was certainly a big thumbs up from many of us after hearing of Liberal's disapproval towards Labour's mandatory filter late last week, but even if Liberal wins the election, we're not entirely free from enforced filtering.




In harnessing a blacklist that has been compiled by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) which blocks an unknown number of child pornography websites and others, both ISPs Telstra and Optus (so far) have agreed to voluntarily implement this blacklist mid next year. This equates to about 5 million internet users that will start receiving a 'clean feed' from this time.
