Starbucks: Porn provider to the world?

Related

Starbucks is being accused of being the porn provider to the world.

In tests carried out in 25 countries, including New Zealand, hardcore porn sites are accessible in Starbucks via Wi-Fi.

Following protests in the United Kingdom, Starbucks there introduced controls to block access to online porn, but in New Zealand there's no such control.

ECPAT Child ALERT chair Yvonne Dufaur says she is astonished Starbucks didn't immediately conclude they should do the same thing everywhere else.
