TalkTalk is Britain’s leading value-for-money TV, broadband
and phone provider, with over four million customers across
the UK. TalkTalk believes that everyone has the right to access
safe, affordable broadband and that they have a responsibility to
help their customers and their families be safer online.
They’ve invested in HomeSafe™, the UK’s first and only parental
controls that are built into the broadband network itself and
protect every device using the home internet from accessing
inappropriate content. It’s free for all TalkTalk customers and
since they launched HomeSafe in May 2011 over 730,000 families have
switched it on.
TalkTalk is working with Girlguiding in support of the Brownie
Computer Badge, specifically to help ensure that Brownies are
supported in using the internet safely. TalkTalk believe the
internet is a tremendous force for good and it’s really important
that young people are equipped with the knowledge and skills to
make the most of being online while also being able to protect
themselves from the risks.
