Yeah that's the question. I know ptcl has started blocking adult sites for the past 6-8 Months, they blocked almost 90% this last week. Does'nt bother me mostly and there is always the option to use paid vpn's.
The question here is that does PTCL is blocking those websites on its own or did PTA/government of Pakistan passed a law to block those websites? Does anyone have any concrete idea/proof?
My personal opinion is that PTCL is doing it on its own to save bandwith and since they have almost complete monopoly over Wired/Wireless internet in Pakistan they can do whatever they desire to and customer has no choice but to follow through. If they think those websites are harmful and unethical then where were they for the past 5-6 years since they introduced DSL in 2007? Yeah we know there were other options like LDN etc back then and now there is only PTCL in most cities.
Your take on this?
