The result of BT and TalkTalk's judicial review over the Digital Economy Act could be imminent, it has been claimed.
Trefor Davies, Chief Technology Officer at business internet service provider (ISP) Timico, claimed the outcome of application – made due to concerns over a lack of scrutiny and debate over the act in its bill form - could be known as early as Thursday (September 30th).
Writing in his blog, he explained that TalkTalk's Andrew Heaney had tipped him off about this possibility of news this week, but noted that he was "not overly optimistic" that this date will be met.
Mr Davies stated: "I guess considering the obscene haste with which the Digital Economy Act was rushed through, we should reasonably expect the judge to take his time on this one and make sure he gets it right."
The controversial legislation entered the statute books earlier this year in order to clamp down on illegal filesharing and copyright infringement.
However, TalkTalk said it would refuse to comply with the new laws, which it argues places unfair burdens on ISPs and consumers.
