THREE of Australia’s largest internet service providers have agreed to voluntarily block online child pornography material ahead of the Federal Government’s planned internet filter.
Telstra, Optus and Primus will block a list of child abuse URLs – internet addresses – compiled by the Australian Communications and Media Authority, Communications Minister Stephen Conroy announced.
“We support the review that was announced today, we support and are willing to voluntarily commit to the blocking of the ACMA list of child pornography sites and we’ll continue to work constructively with the Government as it undertakes this review,” Telstra public policy and communications director David Quilty said.
