Be Broadband has become the latest UK service provider to block controversial filesharing website The Pirate Bay.

In doing so, the broadband provider follows the lead of Sky, Virgin Media and Orange who have already prevented subscribers from accessing the site.

Last month, the High Court of Justice in London ordered UK broadband providers to block access to The Pirate Bay following internet copyright infringement.

In a statement, Be Broadband said it was taking steps to comply with the order by implementing a network-wide block.

"Whilst we’re on the subject, we wanted to say that Be takes pride in the fact that our broadband products are unlimited and unthrottled," the firm added.

Be Broadband said that, unlike other providers, it never slows down or limits connections artificially - no matter what protocol or site the customer is using.

"Legally we need to comply with court orders but wherever possible we leave it up to you," the firm noted.
