The UK get Public Wi-Fi With Censoring Filter

Porn and Similar Things Restricted to Private Use

While the big internet filter for the UK is still on hold because of the larger-than-expected resistance that made a fast and general solution impossible, a smaller step has been undertaken to secure a UK internet that's a little cleaner.

In the near future, all public W-LAN spots (train stations, cafes, schools, etc.) will have a censorship filter that prevents that sites can be accessed that are not suitable for children. It's unclear, though, whether that also affects harmless websites of all the magazines with bare-breasted women or just real pornography. It's also unknown who is responsible for the implementation. Is it the access provider at the top or every WLAN supplier at the bottom?

Either way, the men and women responsible for the project in the UK work on the filtering software and fill the databases with undesired websites. When such a system was proposed in Germany, it failed because many people recognized that once this censorship is in effect by law, it becomes a normality and there's a huge danger that more and more things on the internet get censored. The UK stopped the big plan, as well, but now try it within a smaller context. For now.
