Social Media BLOCKED! (Block lifted)
« on: March 07, 2018, 04:53:34 pm »
Looks like ISPs are blocking Social media sites.
I can't access Facebook or Instagram on my Dialog 4G.
Saw a post from dialog from FB saying that they're blocking social media.

Can anyone confirm if it's the same on SLT?

What the actual f*ck? Facebook got blocked here on SLT 4G. Shows a fake loading status in the browser and says it takes too long to respond hehe. Or at least that's how it is at the moment. This is a direct spit on the face of internet freedom. Talking about freedom people have with this govrenment, pfft... f*cking b*llshit.

Well, the good thing is we have BRAZZERS. Total satisfaction. :D

They haven't still unblocked it right? For me in my SLT 4G still nothing is loading without VPN.

Still using VPN. Also can anyone else confirm whether their internet is slow? or is it just me? (Without VPN)

VICE website says the block is for 72 hours or something. And no, the websites are not un-blocked yet. These are the current speeds in SLT 4G, I'm from a village in Matara town so not sure what speeds others might get:

to colombo: http://www.speedtest.net/result/7120653462.png
to singapore: http://www.speedtest.net/result/7120655474.png
to europe: http://www.speedtest.net/result/7120657896.png
to america: http://www.speedtest.net/result/7120659947.png
to australia: http://www.speedtest.net/result/7120662190.png

i like how internet fnatics use this whole situation as a benchmark for their internet connections. xD

Speeds are below 500kbps for me.
Although just got Private Internet Access and now everything's back to normal, so I'm sure if Dialog did this on purpose.

These cock heads throttled my IPTV stream provider which had nothing to do with social media when the enforced this block. And it still has not fixed after the block is lifted.

Damn, such shady stuff these ISPs doing behind their walls. At least PornHub helps. Satisfaction is the key.
