      That is an interesting follow up to the story I posted earlier (post #74). I see they are going to ask when doing their latest trial. I can't help but think there are many more miles left in this.

      And the shares are going down again........................

      It is very interesting that VM are not even saying anything. I reckon they will pull out. (pardon the pun for those of you with dirty minds)

      It is all very cloak and dagger especially those ISPs are keep there cards close to their chests with this. I suppose some are watching what their rivals are doing and the BT trials.

      As stated here, it would seem that some people/buisinesses are above the law and goverment arn't really over-interested either.....

      Re: Phorm and Sky Broadband - Would you stay or go?

      Unfortunately this week, I missed this story about BT and Phorm.

      No DPI Blog Archive BT covert trials in 2006 - The FACTS about PageSense

      Worthy of a read to see how BT have been conducting their trials etc

      http://www.wikileaks.org/wiki/Britis...idation_report

      I will reserve my making of any statements or personal opinion, as it would appear that certain companies have taken the owner of NoDPI through the legal process for making assumptions / views be made known.

      One thing is for sure, BT would never ever get me to sign up to their Broadband service, or via any of their associated companies. Way to go.

      I honestly hope that Phorm will now fall flat on its face and BT deserve all they get from this in terms of back lash etc

      I may even get a few BT Shares just to show some support at the Protest Meeting on July 16th 2008

      More news here Phorm opponents to picket BT shareholders | The Register

      The more people that know about the way that Phorm and BT work, the better, so feel free to use the links etc on blogs etc

      Re: Phorm and Sky Broadband - Would you stay or go?

      I found this particularly interesting:

      Even if Phorm is not processing personal data, the ISP undertaking the profiling may be to the extent that it uses IP addresses in that profiling and is able to link its customers to an IP address although this may not be its intention.
      So we will all now be given static IP's 'just in case'?

      Or will what 127.0.0.1 views be shown on my pages when I inadvertedly get that IP address due to router disconnections etc!

      Very worrying..

      Re: Phorm and Sky Broadband - Would you stay or go?

      We have now added a banner to our rotation to help spread the word about what people can do regarding Phorm.

      I just hope that Sky do not even consider going down this avenue, as the fallout would be immense.
