just done some digging.
My main provider O2 (ironically giffgaff's owner) dont ask for ID, they accept the details given on signup is proof.
Orange dont require these documents.
I call it extreme because (a) its only for adult sites, its hardly asking for access to a bank vault.
(b) passport and drivers license are the most extreme id available, companies "only" accepting that and nothing else for minor thing is draconian. If fixed line isp's are ever required to add these blocks and then start only accepting these documents I think that will be very draconican.
I dont have either of these documents. I am in the process of getting a passport (to unlock my paypal card), but I am not happy about it, as its an extreme way to verify id/age.
Giffgaff actually claim ofcom require these documents, ofcom actually told me they dont require it and even said providers should not make it unreasonably hard to unlock adult content.
