That's more or less your option.  Your current ISP feels that it is
market-advantageous to do that for all it's customers, seemingly without a
means for you to turn it off if you don't want it.  As such, your option
would be to firstly talk to your ISP about their practice, and explain
that you, as a customer, do not want this service.  If they are not amenable
to providing you with the service you want, then you would be well advised
to move to an ISP that will provide you with the service you want.  Only
time will tell if SPF will be a great marketing draw-card or not.
