NTC to require ISPs to block porn starting this month

The National Telecommunications Commission has posted a memorandum circular last January 30 that will require ISPs to block child pornographic content and websites in the Philippines.

This is part of the guidelines set forth to comply with the Anti-Child Pornography Act of 2009 (Republic Act No. 9775) which was passed some 5 years ago but will only be implemented now.

With the implementation of the rules and regulations, ISPs will have to install carrier-grade monitoring programs to identify and filter out porn content. This could include websites and blogs that publishes porn content, video streaming services that allows uploading and viewing of pornographic video, file sharing sites and webcam services that facilitates the same.

The Philippine is one of the top countries for porn as well as primary source for an emerging webcam child sex tourism. Last month, PornHub reported that the Philippines ranked #15 in global mobile traffic to their site.

In 2008, we also reported that the Philippines ranked #8 in the world for porn revenues.
