Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Internet censorship is effected in Thailand by two methods. The Royal Thai Police blocks approximately 32 500 websites and the Communications Authority of Thailand a further unspecified number directly at Thailand's Internet gateway. The Ministry of Information and Communication Technology (MICT), blocks indirectly by informally "requesting" the blocking of websites by Thailand's 54 commercial and non-profit Internet Service Providers (ISPs). Although ISPs are not legally required to accede to these "requests," MICT Permanent Secretary Kraisorn Pornsuthee has written in 2006 that ISPs who fail to comply will be punitively sanctioned by government in the form of bandwidth restriction or even loss of operating license. This is a powerful compulsion to comply.
