I wondered if anyone had any comments on what is currently going on in the UK with the 3 largest ISP's planning on selling the data streams of thier users to an outside company with an outside company with some interesting history to say the least. The outside company in qustion is called Phorm. The ISPs in Question are BT, Talk talk and virgin media (formally NTL cable). Lots of issues surrounding it with off shore data storage and opting in and out. The register in the UK has much more info and here are a couple of links to read over as they do a much better job...
Do you think NZ ISPs would ever go down the same route and if so, would you consider changing providers?
