Orange Ditches Phorm

Well, there’s a turn up for the books! It appears that Phorm are being dropped by Orange. Hopefully more ISPs will follow suit. In an interview with the Financial Times, a representative from Orange said:

“Privacy is in our DNA, so we need to be honest and clear about what we are doing. We have decided not to be in Phorm because of that… The way it was proposed, the privacy issue was too strong.”

It’s nice that it’s not just us geeks who see that Honesty and Phorm are not good bedfellows.

El Reg has a nice article about it here.
