NonprayingMantis: Aside from Netflix etc, would using Fyx also be a handy way to totally avoid getting pinged with a copyright notice?
Pretty sure there are hard and fast laws around that.
GeoffisPure: I think this is a terrible idea. A few points:
1. Maxnet need to make up their mind what they're about. On one hand they encourage censorship by having the DIA filter, and on the other hand they create a business model that appeals MOSTLY do those who want to access stuff they're not allowed to (albeit for different reasons). Their website claims "FYX is an ISP that is all about open access and freedom", yet they know how many people feel about the DIA filter.
Side question: Isn't Maxnet run by some conservative religious group, like the Exclusive Brethren or something? Forgive me and delete this question if I'm wrong.
I can't see why people are comparing the DIA filter to Geo unblocking. The DIA filter is a opt-in kiddie porn filter, ISPs who make use of the service can opt-out if legitimate content started to be blocked. FYX are in no way promoting such viewing at all from what I've read, not sure where you got that impression from.
I'd be more worried about the state of those who want to be able to access the type of content that filter blocks anyway...
Tabuti: This looks awesome.. Once someone jumps on it could you post a speedtest to kiwi servers & some east coast us ones?
Will try tonight
