By Andy Bates

Do you have a right to a cleaner internet? We have discussed Quad9 and the advantages it gives organisations and end users. Although it’s easy to configure and a great thing to do, is it right that you should have to?

Many people now consider internet access to be a basic right – like having drinking water. Yet your drinking water is clean, but your internet connection often is the delivery mechanism that brings many dangers to your world.

Isn’t it time you demanded a safer and cleaner internet? There’s no excuse now!
