Digital Economy Act 2017 — UK Parliament

The Digital Economy Act 2017 includes a provision to allow providers of internet access services to engage in filtering of their service for child protection purposes, where this is in accordance with the terms of service. In light of net neutrality, this supports the position of the existing popular parental control filters offered by UK ISPs to their customers.
