Jessica against plan to block BB Web access

Tue, January 11 2011 | 10:12 am

KawankuJAKARTA: Actress Jessica Iskandar disagrees with the government’s plan to shut down BlackBerry’s access to the Internet service in Indonesia because it will disrupt her daily activities.

“I use BlackBerry as a working and socializing tool, including to send emails because it is easier. I hope it will not be banned, because it is very useful,” Jessica said as quoted by Inilah.com on Monday.

According to the 22-year-old, the government’s reason for blocking BlackBerry’s Web access was unclear.

“If it is because of the porn content, then the government should blame the users. The problem is that not all users are porn savvy. It is better to block the sites but not the [BlackBerry] service,” she said. — JP
