Hanoi Post Office has ordered all internet customers to download software to filter any adult website content. The post office sent notices by e-mail to all subscribers of VNN 1260, Mega VNN networks, and public internet agents with instructions on how to download the filtering software.
HPO has warned that the VNN agents that have signed contracts with HPO, have to take full responsibility if their customers gain access to ‘dirty’ websites.
The requirement will also appear as a provision in the contracts signed by new internet agents.
The software, called ‘VwebFilter’ can be downloaded at http://support.vnn.vn
The regulation is valid from December 2004.
