Post my ISP sucks !!
a rant post.

Thats it, whenever i have the necessery means i'll switch to another ISP.

how exactly that my isp sucks ?

- It blocks DNS request if i'm not using its own DNS server, therefore i can't use 3rd party dns server such as OpenDNS.

- Now it even act further by removing the DNS entry to some of my favorite sites ! [size=0](this probably because some religio fundoo have become a Minister of Communications and Informations)[/size]
to circumvent that, i have to find what IP address for that sites, and modify the hosts file.

none of above were stated in Term & Services.

my sincerest thanks, for someone who told me about the http://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/

also thanks to

no problems with cocmast here, but different areas which were acquired at different times have different legacy infrastructure which is set up differently.

different post is different. O_o

Wait, an ISP you PAY for banning certain websites? Specifically game sites sounds absolutely silly. Sounds like something they'd do in a school or business, but that's it.

No I refused to pay the first bill cuz they didn't allow one of my games to go online. I think they blocked out chat room stuff too. One of them bible belt ISPs lol

I've been on Cox Tulsa for years now with no problem with the actual internet itself

Maybe that can be somehow tunneled/encrypted? Unfortunately I don't know more about this.
