So true.

Some time last week, friend's kid came over with his mac and borrowed my connection. Next morning I received an email from VQ with a warning from agents of Paramount. Just freaked me out.

Never happened before. Dug around because I wasn't sure if it was a spam but looks real enough. Any thoughts?

Heads up to VQ subscribers. Be very careful who uses your connection and what they use it for. it can really spoil your day.
ISP can also knows even you are on dynamic plan..

This seem not really right. What you just show on image between with freedomvpn n without freedom vpn. This show that Viewqwest restricted it's subscribers on PPTV to lesser show n movies if they are not on freedom vpn. My other two connections shows the same page as Viewqwest connection with freedom vpn, the numbers of pages are the same on other isp subscribers. Maybe others could also try on other connections like starhub or myrepublic.
someone please test it also. this is on my office internet M1 line

i remember VQ mention that PPTV on freedom vpn = premium user on pptv
compare to the user in china, the difference is no advertising. the menu is same

compare to user in SG, no advertising, more movies and shows

so far, that is the different i found. the speed i dont see much difference. even on normal internet, it is fast enough.

Do not worry, Viewqwest has already confirmed(I asked) that they will only forward to subscribers any warning emails received from any copyright owners in USA. They will NOT release any customer details without a court order from a court of law based in Singapore. Any requests for info will be ignored without the above mentioned document

1) Even if agents i.e Paramount present a court order from US, it holds no jurisdiction in Singapore and will be ignored by VQ and other ISPs.
2) As per IIPA report, IPRB dept of SPF has notified all copyright holders in 2007 that the Singapore Government will not act on any copyright infringement involving personal usage with immediate effect.
3) All ISPs here do not bother replying to copyright infringement notices/complaints by copyright holders, leading to dead ends for them to the benefit of the subscribers.
4) Most if not all US companies wont bother flying all the way here just to sue one person.

The response to date of the Singapore government to these depredations can best be described as passive. In the online arena, the music industry has been filing complaints with the Intellectual Property Rights Branch (IPRB) of the Singapore police since 2005. These have led to the issuance of a handful of warning letters from government enforcement agencies, with no action whatever in the vast majority of cases......The IPRB informed the industry in July 2007 that it would not be taking any action on these complaints and suggested that collaborative enforcement” was the best form of action. By that, the IPRB meant that the industry should take up private prosecution or civil proceedings. Following a meeting with IPRB in 2007 at which the authorities told the recording industry that it would consider enforcement actions in cases involving a “significant number” of music files, IPRB has never responded to industry requests to specify what level of infringement would qualify as “significant.”
So once again, there is really no cause for alarm unless you are involved in a piracy group that distribute pirated software(that the IRPB does crackdown against). There is almost nothing the Americans can do to us here

Looks like HE route is getting choke every evening. Any chance of solving this problem once and for all?

Guess viewqwest need to get more bandwidth from it's transit IP partners. If not more and more subscribers is going to make Viewqwest loss it's reputation as the fastest.

Maybe VQ should have some kind of SLA (speed and latency?) with HE.

OneVoice number porting

Referring to the comment in forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/67616534-post3.html about number porting - I called up today but no number porting is available.

Is there any confusion here?

no wonder you so openly promote TPB

jokes aside.

what if the US companies like universal, paramount, etc produce a USA court order to the Singapore court demanding the release of details. will the SG court act on it?

basically your point 1 with the sg part added.
