"Meanwhile, the estimated cost to large ISPs of blocking sites – on the assumption that this would be for between 1 and 50 sites a year on a DNS level – is in the range of £100,000 to £500,000, "

If ISPs don't want to implement - then I can understand the high figure - however - most ISP's use firewalls and IDS/IDP hardware within their data centres that can filter on categories (porn being one of those) or implemented cheaply through a proxy at the data centre,

It'll not stop VPN's or other types of behaviour t get around.
