Good to hear @Ofcom set out its approach to regulating to prevent #OnlineHarms - namely that it will be an evolutionary, evidence-based approach. We’d suggest a good starting point is knowing, independently, confidently and proportionality which users are adults and which are not https://twitter.com/pi_conference/status/1233006338940243968

ISPA policy work update

The broadband subgroup has kicked off 2020 with a meeting to plan activity for the year and discuss several ongoing consultations from Ofcom. With the EECC and Wholesale Fixed Telecoms Market Review published by Ofcom either side of Christmas there is a lot of regulation to digest, as well as activity in Parliament. Following the election last year the Government has progressed its legislation to ease access for operators to tenanted properties. ISPA is continuing to monitor and actively reach out to Parliamentarians as this Bill goes through the House of Commons to ensure the views of the industry are represented. Elsewhere, ISPA and its member are eagerly awaiting the imminent publication of the Online Harms White Paper.
