    hmm.. i have checked... atleast in our area of Kolkata, its working fine... may be there is some thing wrong with ur system...

    check whether any firewall is on or any other software is blocking the access...

    They are actually not supposed to do any filtering, but they used to do it, at least in my area. When i was on sify, they also blocked grc.com, they said their shields up test generated a lot of pings on their servers. WTH, if you cannot handle pings, why dont you just quit being an ISP?? But who has the time to make them understand that they should just stop being ISPs and looting people?! Probably they block P2P and torrents because their servers cannot "handle" the traffic :p

    I'm sure that even 2day sify is involved in blocking.. Also in smaller towns where BSNL, Airtel and other majors are not present, the Local Cable Operators rule.. They provide 64 Kbps and 128 Kbps connections under the name of "Broadband".. But for ppl in those towns, there's no other go.. Though their tariff is quite cheap, they block torrents and p2p.. this suits them, as their servers can not handle high traffic!

    They r clearly mentioning that these things would be blocked, while u ask for a connection from them.. But, they aren't supposed to do it! If only any of those living in such towns takes up this issue with the court or trai, there wont be any end to it..

    sorry... though i am not 100% sure , but still i cant agree with u...

    just like Mobile Operator cant ask u for Incoming call charge at any mean ... just like that ISP cant block those application... unless Government ask them to block certain applications....

    once again i am not 100% sure about it.. i will enquire and will reply back...

    once again... i dont agree... they do... its called Core under the Ministry of Consumer Affairs, Food & Public Distribution...

    just for those people u mentioned... its very very effective... well personally i have seen that they are one of those few GOV section who works... they r a little slow... but they do take so very very strong stapes once u give enough documentation...

    ^^ That cablewaala shut down the branch when airtel came here.. I made sure everyone taking internet from him shifted to airtel. I personally made calls to people and asked them to switch :p

    And as for writing to the govt, core, trai etc.. I give a **** to the indian government. Dont want to waste my time on writing letters. I have better things to do in my life.

    dont know if people read the 'terms and conditions' that all of the ISPs have .. and are rechecked and rechecked by some of the brilliant minds in LAW

    heres an excerpt from an ISP

    once you become a customer.. u have unknowingly signed and confirmed the said words in the terms and conditions

    Come On...

    do u think Torrents are only for those?? Not attall... Free Linux Oses are shared through torrents... many Free software are tools are shared through torrents as the developer might not be able to afford the cost of Bandwidth...
