Friday, May 8th, 2009 - Highway 1
National Internet Service Provider (ISP) Highway 1 will commence the first phase of its ISP filtering pilot next week (May 11).  Highway 1 customers across Australia who have expressed interest in participating in the pilot will have their internet service filtered through the Australian Communication and Media Authority (ACMA) blacklist over a period of six weeks. The pilot will conclude on 23 June 2009.

Highway 1 General Manager Nicholas Power said, “We are pleased to commence the trial and are interested to see the results from our customers who have opted-in.”

“Our participation will lead us to a position where we will be able to comment objectively on the technical aspects of the implementation of filtering solutions and its viability.”

Information on the Highway 1 trial is available at Highway 1 customers who wish to be part of the pilot can email [email protected] at any time to be added to the filter group when the trial commences.

Highway 1 announced in February that it was one of half a dozen ISPs approved by the Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy (DBCDE), to participate in the ISP Internet Level Content Filtering Pilot. The pilot is an Australian Government initiative aimed to test and assess the impact ISP content filtering has on ISPs and their customers.
