TalkTalk has launched a new campaign calling on the government to scrap plans to disconnect broadband services offered to illegal filesharers.

The broadband provider's new Don't Disconnect Us initiative is based around a new website, where people can learn more about how illegal filesharing is being tackled across the globe.

It also includes a link to a Downing Street petition where people can voice their concerns over such plans.

Talking to PC Advisor, a spokesman for the company said the new website would act as a hub for all information on the issue.

He added: "We also want to hear from people who think we're wrong so we can have a full and frank exchange of views."

Earlier this week, TalkTalk unveiled new research which revealed that a number of broadband subscribers could face being disconnected under the government's plans, despite not using P2P sites.

It claimed that this was because many could easily have their connections hacked by illegal filesharers.
