So Why Does Vodafone Filter Block Sky News?


As I reported first, Vodafone’s content control policy in UK is having some embarrassing teething troubles…and not everyone is happy. According to The Register, some Vodafone users say they have been unable to access corporate email – Vodafone’s Blackberry service was apparently disrupted for a time. Others have been unable to access the Sky News website. Access to adult content, however, does not appear to have been universally restricted.

Vodafone argues that teething troubles are to be expected when a system like this goes live to so many users. It is less forthcoming with explanations of how the system should work, once the problems have been ironed out.

Content filtering is a crap shoot, if you ask me…
