Parental Control

Introducing a revolutionary level of control over your Internet connection.



Bigpipe is proud to announce a revolution in parental control for internet connections with the Bigpipe App, coming soon to all Bigpipe customers.

With the Bigpipe App’s Parental Control feature, you’ll have a deeper level of control over the household internet connection than has ever before been possible.

For instance, if you want to make sure that the kids can’t use social media after bedtime, you can choose to restrict access to Social Media with just one tap in the Bigpipe app. This will turn off access to sites and services like Facebook, but leave other services free. It’s like a remote control for your broadband. 

Parents are able to turn off multiple modes at once, or choose to prioritise them. For example, if parents want to watch Lightbox but disallow the children access to Facebook, they can turn off Social Media while prioritising Streaming mode.  

The Bigpipe App can only be used by the Bigpipe account holder for any given connection. That account holder can see what sort of traffic is currently on a connection, and can choose to restrict – or prioritise – any particular mode.

All this capability runs on the Bigpipe network, so activation is near-instantaneous. Parental Control requires no additional software and no additional service sign-up – it just works, straight from the Bigpipe App. It also means that parents can see what’s happening on their home Bigpipe connection and activate parental control features from anywhere – work, home or overseas.

Parental Control will come built-in to the next update to the Bigpipe App, but we’re offering the chance to get in early! If you’re with Bigpipe, sign up to the Parental Control beta now.
