Australia Ceased Sponsoring Voluntary Web Filtering Plan

The federal budget of the country for 2011-2012 ends sponsoring the Voluntary Internet Filtering Grants Program in order to save about $10 million over the next 3 years. Despite this, Labor Party is still going to move forward with obligatory ISP-level web filtering.


Recently the country’s government took the decision to scrap its Voluntary Internet Filtering Grants Program in the federal budget of the current year. The budget reads that the government refused to proceed with the Voluntary Internet Filtering Grants Program, which is supposed to allow to save over $9.5 million over 3 years.

The Voluntary Internet Filtering Grants Program was developed to help broadband providers offer their subscribers another filtering option for digital content which was not RC (Refused Classification), but still objected by the ISPs. However, the government came to a conclusion that there was not enough interest among Internet service providers in the grants. In addition, it is believed that the subscribers have already had a few filtering options at their disposal and therefore could live out without another one.

The budget text confirms that the Australian government provided almost $10 million in the 2010-2011 budget intended to establish the Voluntary Internet Filtering Grants Program. The final aim was to help broadband providers to develop another web filtering options for their subscribers on a commercial basis. But later the consultation with the industry has discovered a very limited interest in the grants. The reason was an ever increasing choice of filtering technologies that were already available to Internet users, like browser and search engine filters. In addition, the decision of the 3 major broadband providers of Australia also weighed in: the companies accounting for over 2/3 of Australian Internet subscribers decided to voluntarily implement a filter for kids abuse websites according to the list made and maintained by the Australian Communications and Media Authority.

It’s all good news for the Australians, except for the tiny problem: the government is still going to push forward with an obligatory filtering scheme that has been in the works for the last four years.
