MyDestiny blocking off sites to ease up bandwidth?

This email came from one commenter in the blog:

[email protected]

First of all, we would like to thank you for your continued interest in our services.

We would also like to advise that our International Private Link (IPL) Provider has blocked certain sites to free up some bandwidth. Here are the blocked sites:

www.friendster.com
www.revver.com
www.movies.com
www.download.com
www.apple.com
www.youtube.com
www.quicktime.com

Realme Philippines

This is ONLY temporary. We will advise you as soon as we possibly can when the said sites are up.

Again, thank you very much and Happy New Year.

Very Truly Yours,

John Luke Q. Chica

I guess it’s reasonable considering all the network degradation but certainly a lot of internet cafe boys & girls will surely be pissed off.

Currently (since Friday) MyDestiny has Friendster, Myspace and Facebook blocked.

Totally unacceptable.

Done with them.

There was actually a problem with Globe’s International Private Link which affected MyDestiny. Hence, those sites were blocked.

i don’t know if my site has been blocked by BAYANDSL here in Southern Leyte but I can’t login the site since this morning. Even the ploghost.com is dead too. My blogging job has been affected by this. please help.

However, a more astig solution would be to not block any sites at all. Instead push all “unimportant” traffic to a transparent proxy and enable a delay pool on that transparent proxy. this way all those “unimportant” traffic will just be slowed down instead of totally blocked. This way there is not need for an annoucement ;-)

I think a good number of providers are doing something in this line already ;-)

Net Neutrality or no I believe this is a good move by the Internet Service Provider. I for one would rather have all my email make its way through. I can suffer a few days without flickr and youtube :-D

Wow, they’re using network congestion to justify dropping net neutrality. Where have we heard that before
