Does anyone know if PlusNet are planning on implementing network based parental controls like Sky has?

I don't know, but I've posted a bit about Sky's set up here: http://helpforum.sky.com/t5/Broadband-Setup-Connecti...

Cheers, good point about blocking the outbound DNS. I just read in a BBC article that BT and Virgin will be introducing their own filters in the next 2 months, as PlusNet are owned by BT maybe they will get the same filter.

Wont non-new customers get their control systems much later. I think it's around a year later...

Existing Sky customers can access the Sky Broadband shield and configure it how they want now

Hopefully never As some of us are adults and don't need or want such filters see the rev k rants about this camerloon nonsense re web blocking, i agree with him the man talks a lot of sense unlike our policitians,
And IMO the buck stops with parents what the children see and do on the internet it's up to them to montitor what they see & do or implement filtering on the own local networks, It's not the job of the state or ISP's to nanny everyone And i sincerely hope that the associated costs incurred to ISP's in deploying such filters isn't going to be passed on to those customers who do not use or need/want them , let those who wanted or use them pay for them

In reply to a post by tommy45:

Then you can turn it off.

Parents should be given the power to restrict their children's access to the internet if they see fit, as long as adults can turn it off (which they can).

It should always be off by default , and once again those that dont want or need it should not be expected to subsidise those few who want it
