I'll tell you one thing...
...this really reaffirms my faith in the gov't having the details of everyone who wants porn when they start blocking websites in April.

I spent a solid year paying £22.31 (later rising to £23.31) a month for half a Megabit.
My connection magically fixed itself at the start of the month through the effort of absolutely nobody; and now I'm on 3,000 kbps down for the same price.
And I'm not eligible for compensation or a rebate for the money I spent over the year because consumer rights in the UK is still a fucking joke.
It was my first one.
Decided to try and turn my life around, go back to college to do my HND (still need to deal with all that stuff) then progress onto getting a BSc, then in time... emigrate.
I was wondering...
As someone who’s paid for legal content from an overseas (Japanese) website; if the website gets blocked because it refuses to impliment an AgeID system (And why should they? The UK doesn't have any jurisdiction outside of the UK as much as it like think otherwise.) am I entitled to compensation from somebody for paying for a service I can no longer access or… or what?
>I want to get this fixed before my children go on the internet.
I wouldn't worry.
Websites by then will probably require more bandwidth to be point of being unviewable in the UK - because we'll still be stuck with our telecommunications infrastructure which is decades ahead of it's time... about a century ago.
IRC is the vastly superior communication medium.
I know people are jumping onto Discord because it's "hot shit;" but I read a news article the other day which says they recieve requests from the government and Law Enforcement Agencies and hand over information... which didn't surprise me in the least.
Hence why I'd never use a platform like that.
