They should lose the right to access the Internet for the rest of their lives. There is no reason people like this should have continued online access.

Don't know if we're allowed to say this here, but ... internet access isn't the only thing they should lose if you catch my drift

Agreed. But also Internet access, and it should be permanent, and no Internet providers should ever sell to them again. It's not impossible to make this happen.

It's definitely possible, but our justice system doesn't take these crimes seriously. Jon Venables, who murdered a toddler at aged 10, was given a completely new identity upon release at 18. He was rearrested and charged for child pornography offenses in 2010. He was then given another new identity, and went on to be convicted again in 2017 for possessing hundreds of category A indecent images of children. Thousands of taxpayer pounds wasted to keep him anonymous and put children and women at risk.
