Whilst watching TV at lunchtime, one of the ladies on "Loose Women" raised a a very interesting point. The new government initiative of fast broadband for all would give them potential access into every house in this country. Is this the first step on the slippery slope to George Orwell's nightmare of 1984? What do members think ?????
I'm echoing laurie53 here - how on earth would they get access to every house?
Just because there's the potential for an ADSL connection doesn't mean it's enabled.
Just because there's an active ADSL connection doesn't mean they can tap into it. Unless someone from MI5 breaks into your house, installs a covert camera capable of connecting to your network and assuming you don't have a firewall on your router.
If your really paranoid though you wouldn't even have a phone line to the house - did you know that the microphone on the old dial type phones was active all the time, anyone at the exchange could listen into your house at any time.
Better get the tin foil lined hat out to stop them listening into your thoughts...
