Consumers Think ISPs Fail to Prevent Harmful Online Content

The latest YouGov survey for Mott MacDonald Schema reveals that 48% of Internet users do not believe ISPs and social networking sites are doing enough to prevent harmful online content from being accessed. The survey of 2000 surfers also found that 90% of respondents expected parents to be accountable for protecting their children online.

However 64% felt that both ISPs and websites should be held responsible for harmful content and 62% felt that the Internet would benefit from tougher regulation. Sadly trust in ISPs appears to have taken a further hit, with over one in three saying they would not trust their provider with common personal details, such as age.

No responsibility can be taken for the content of external Internet sites.
