A leading internet service provider in the UK has declared that it will refuse to follow government orders to restrict, slow down or cut off its customers' internet access under rules set out in Lord Mandelson's (pictured) Digital Economy Bill.
The provider, TalkTalk, which has over 4 million internet users, has declared the legislation "draconian" and says it will not cooperate with its provisions.
Andrew Heaney, TalkTalk's director of strategy and regulation has said the company will repel any instructions to disconnect customers unless instructed to by the courts.
