You can run but you can not hide.
What if you moved to China. But you still needed to communicate with British websites or email users: you will still be intercepted.
I choose not to use gmail because the way google intercepts and profiles it. But I can not help that if I reply to a gmail user.
And as I said earlier: it is already happening.
* BT were using phorm DPI and are now using Huawei routers
* Virgin Media are using Huawei routers and network management
* TalkTalk are using Huawei for site (user) profiling
* Vodafone are using Bluecoat
You can see how this has come about and where it is going. Jacqui Smith wanted one giant data silo - possibly at GCHQ - but that is too costly.
The Lib Cons have realised they can break this up into smaller silos at each ISP and possibly at social media service sites such as Google, Facebook, Twitter, Skype.
By placing the data silos at the ISP it reduces cost. But will the ISPs want to run this? Yes! The sweetener for them is that they will get to analyse all the data for marketing purposes.
This is what went on with Phorm. There were two payoffs. The government got to trial DPI monitoring at a stealth level, the ISP got to trial highly lucrative behavioral targeted advertising. Both desperately need this technology running right now.
