    Starhub was and still is blocking bittorrent traffic ever since a few years ago.

    How about Stinknet?

    In fact, by my calculation of the data provided by the project report, Starhub could be the second worst ISP to be on for BitTorrent use in the world. I have done a piece on it too and hopefully the momentum for this can pick up enough for public debate because the implications, I feel, are quite significant.

    The Singapore Daily team beat me to the ‘local release’ of this story though, damn! Hehehe…
