Israel: Will ISPs have to Send Detailed Surfing Records to Subscribers?

Gilad Erdan,Minister
of Communications 
Earlier this month, Israel's Ministry of Communications (the local regulator) published 2 calls for hearing about new parental control services to be provided by broadband ISPs (here) and MNOs (here, both in Hebrew).

According to the documents, only a small number of the subscribers have signed for the filtering services of harmful sites. These services should be provided by all licensed ISPs and MNOs for free.

In order to increase public awareness to the risks, and to the SPs solutions, the Ministry is considering requiring SPs to add the following services to the filtering service:
  • Allowing subscribers to manage the time of day and duration of surfing, with an option for flexibility and changes
  • The SP will send, on a daily weekly or monthly basis, a report by Email a report on all sites visited by the subscriber
  • The SP will allow the use of "user names" on a single device, enabling the service to some of the user names
  • The filtering service will not affect the browsing QoE
  • The subscriber will be able to select between a device based or a network-based service 
And again - all the above is expected to be provided for free!!!
