NTC requiring ISP to Block Porn in the Philippines


NTC or National Telecommunications Commission are requiring internet providers to block pornographic content and website in the country.

This was made in connection with the forum organized by the Council on the Welfare of Children last week, NTC and other government agencies like the Department of Justice (DOJ), National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), Philippine National Police (PNP), and the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) gave updates on measures being taken to fight cyber-pornography, especially the emerging webcam child sex tourism (WCST). NTC posted this as a memorandum circular issued last Jan. 30

This implementation will require ISP to block and install special software to automatically filtered pornographic content such as blog, streaming video and photos.

This is the right thing to do since Philippines is one of the top countries accessing the porn sites that ranked 15 according to Pornhub. Operators and suppliers of this explicit act will avoid the Philippines as their market as well as it will save children being used and abused on webcam.


The NTC is looking forwards to migration from the current IPV (Internet protocol version) 4 to IPV6 to enable authorities to monitor Internet activity in smaller and specific locations as houses and establishment. It was learned that the former IP version can only monitor a barangay, municipality or city.
