If we're talking about "monitored" access (per the OP) then presumably porn wouldn't be allowed and/or blocked.

All I can say is that, for me, I would have loved to be able to keep up with news and current events.

Even though I had a personal TV for most of my time down this last time, you still miss so much getting only the few biggest headline tidbit stories on the 5 o'clock local news or even cable news like CNN, compared to what's available (and in depth) on online news sites. Even though I had access to the daily local newspaper and a few monthly magazine subscriptions, there's still quite a bit of news you miss out on being locked up.

So yeah, if they were to introduce filtered Internet access on those JPay tablets or whatever, I think many prisoners would be catching up on the news.
