Bypass provides thought leadership at PITA 2017 – radio interview

Shane Hobson recently attended the PITA 2017 AGM in the Cook Islands. He was there to debate the merits of Government mandated internet filtering vs a free, open, unfiltered internet. He met with government officials and service providers to share a global insight into trends from New Zealand, Europe and India about what works to minimise harm from new and emerging internet technology. Following on from the Prime Minister’s opening remarks about the operators taking responsibility there was plenty of robust debate and acceptance of each parties philosophies. The implementation of Network Level Parental Controls is being debated globally.
