Starhub blocking BitTorrent…

leave a comment »

Interesting news that I picked up recently, despite it being old news and that is Starhub, my Internet provider is blocking bittorrent sharing across it’s network.

According to this AsiaOne article, Starhub is not denying it and mentioned that other ISP do just the same. I know that in the USA, this is a major debate that is going on right now among the different ISP and people who are legitimately sharing programs, particularly open source program are facing a roadblock… and are looking elsewhere for the connectivity.

Well, I am happy so far with my Starhub broadband speed and overall performance and rarely uses bittorrent so I am not too pissed by this… Anyway I have one more year to go on my contract. Will evaluate the situation then on other ISP if they have instituted the same blocking mechanism.
