De anställda på Ericsson kan inte surfa fritt på internet. Nedan visas ett internt brev som gått ut till de anställda på Ericsson.

As from the middle of January 1996 some information sources with information that's not related to Ericsson business will no longer be available.

At present many Ericsson employees are experiencing slow respons on Internet services available via the Ericsson Internet gateway in Älvsjö, Stockholm. Analysis of the operation logs from the gateway proxy-server, as well as from the Erinews server, has shown that a significant set of the information retrieved from the Internet has no relation to Ericsson business. Many Ericsson employees are using these services for Ericsson business purposes, and today they have to spend time waiting for information to be retrieved because others are retrieving information for their own pleasure.

In order to improve the situation for the people using the Internet services for Ericsson business purposes, we will try to give priority to business related information at the expense of pleasure/entertainment related d:o. Since it is difficult to distinguish and control the priority on an end user or single file level, the restrictions will be implemented by limiting the access to information sources, accessible today via news or WWW, which fulfill the condition no relation to Ericsson business in combination with large volume.

In this action most sources disabled are related to either computer games or sex. Please notice that the purpose with this action is to improve the situation for personell using Internet services for Ericsson business purposes. Consequently this is not a moral mission and the selection of disabled sources does not implicitly legitimize the use of sources with no relation with Ericson business, but not disabled.

The action is supported by Ericsson Core Unit IT's "POLICY FOR ACCESS TO INTERNET" Doc.no. EIT-95:222, - also available on ECN at URL: http://eriweb.ericsson.se/eit/internet/e-i-pol.html - as the following states:

"6. INFORMATION RETRIEVAL FROM INTERNET
Only information that is useful to Ericsson may be accessed or spread. It is not allowed to use Internet for private business or access/spread data that can be regarded as offending."

If access to an information source that you require in your work has been disabled, you can submit a request to make it accessible again. Please send an email to Memo: EDT.EDTWWW, motivating why you need the information source in question. Your request will be forwarded to the appropriate person, within your Ericsson company, to make the decision whether the source should be accessible or not.
