Melbourne, VIC (PRWEB) February 13, 2009
iPrimus announced today that it will be participating in the Australian Government's ISP filtering pilot.
iPrimus is among six service ISP providers selected by the Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy to participate in the ISP filtering 'live' pilot after submitting an expression of interest.
iPrimus' General Manager of Marketing & Products, Andrew Sims said, "Our customer demographics are well suited to the trial, with a large concentration of families with young children who would welcome the ability to opt-in to a content filtering trial."
"It will be offered on an opt-in basis and customer participation will be totally voluntary. The ability for the customer to opt-in to the trial provides them ultimate freedom over their internet experience. We expect to gather a lot of interesting data from the trial, especially surrounding how well filtering works in practice and our customers' responses to it."
iPrimus will be looking for customers to participate in the trial and will provide feedback on an ongoing basis.
Sims said, "It will be important to receive feedback from our customers on this pilot. Our customers will be notified via email details about the trial including when it will begin, how they can choose to opt-in and where they can post their feedback."
The trial is expected to begin late April or early May and will run for a period of six weeks.
More information on the iPrimus' trial, including Frequently Asked Questions will be available at http://www.iprimus.com.au along with instructions on how customers can participate.
