The Internet is a great resource that can be used for many business-related activities, but our Internet access connection is running at maximum bandwidth. We need to reduce the amount of traffic going through it or face additional expense. Therefore, we will be implementing additional blocking of certain categories on our Internet filter. The following categories have been identified as non-business related and will be blocked. Many of these were already being blocked.
Fashion and Beauty
Food and Dining
Hobbies and Recreation
Intimate Apparel and Swimwear
Intolerance and Hate
Personals and Dating
Phishing and Fraud
Proxies and Translators
Ringtones/ Mobile Phone Downloads
Tasteless and Offensive
We may unintentionally block categories which have a work-related use because some sites are listed in unexpected categories. If you need any sites that might get blocked due to the category being blocked, please contact the Personnel Director to justify its usage and the site can be unblocked upon approval. Please do not contact me as I will just refer you to Personnel.
If they try to block the Bristol Blog, be sure to let me know!
Update: The internet may be off limits, but city workers can still access the Bristol Blog. Thank goodness.
