McDonalds new free in store WiFi service will be filtered according to Australian IT. They’ll be deploying Earthwave’s Clean Pipes service to offer a ‘Family Friendly’ and secure net service. Makes sense given Macca’s is a private family friendly restaurant.

Earthwave chief executive Carlo Minassian says:

“The policy includes more than 100 pre-defined categories, as well as black and white lists that McDonald’s can control,” he said. “Authorised managers will have access to a secure Earthport portal via an RSA SecurID token, where they can make changes to their policy.”


Clean Pipes will also monitor and protect against threats arising from internet traffic generated by customers using the WiFi hotspots.

I wonder if is on the black or the white?
