Bell Mobility and Solo Mobile make mobile Internet access safer



    Bell Parental Control the first content filtering service in Canada for
    mobile phones

    MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, Oct. 31 /CNW Telbec/ - Bell Mobility and Solo
Mobile today announced a content access control solution that lets parents
limit mobile-phone access to Internet sites they feel might be inappropriate
for their children, a first in Canada.
    "We understand the Internet is an incredible source for entertainment,
education and social networking, but also a challenge considering the large
number of Internet sites featuring content that may be inappropriate for
children to view," said Adel Bazerghi, Senior Vice President of Products for
Bell Mobility. "As use of the Internet on mobile phones grows, fuelled by the
popularity of smartphones and the fast access speeds delivered by 3G networks,
our clients have asked for tools to help them manage access. Bell Parental
Control offers them content filtering capability on mobile phones for the
first time in Canada."
    The solution employs Unipier Ltd.'s Intelligent Policy Manager (IPM)
system, which sets the guidelines for identifying and filtering content. The
system applies these guidelines in real-time over any mobile content.
    To activate Parental Control, payment-responsible account holders visit
My Bell or Solo Mobile self serve and follow the instructions on the
password-protected sites. Parental Control is available nationally on most
phones for $5 a month on both prepaid and postpaid accounts.
