UK Outlines Plan For Internet Black Boxes

NetNifty Re:Where is the storage coming from (419 comments)

33 TB per day at £200 per TB (regular 1TB 3.5" hard disks can be bought for about £80 now, guessing high for redundancy) works out to only £2,409,000 per year costs in storage. Not a massive amount compared to how much our government throws away on other things.
