ISPs says, PORN BAN is not possible in Nepal

blogs



Yes, you heard it right, it is impossible to ban porn sites. Here is one fact, The US and China tried to fight porn and what ? they couldn’t and then they only limited themselves to child pornography ban.

With little bit more effort, yes you can ban some handful sites. What kind of site will be banned first ? Well, they will try to ban popular sites. But this will not work, why ? VPN and Proxy out there will work in any means. 

List based approach is useless. In list based approach, Nepal Government with the help of ISPs create a list of sites and block the access to their server. But if mirror site is created, then list approach fails. Or if site changes the url, then again list approach fails.

There are lots of porn viewers from Nepal. Lets assume that 1 popular site is blocked or banned here in Nepal and let the name of that site be “XYZ”. Then ? Viewer will send info msg to admin of that site and asks for mirror site. And viewer will get new URL or mirror site of “XYZ” and can easily access the content. So, list based approach fails here again



On Ashoj 5 after getting the order from MOCIT(Ministry of Communication and Information technology), NTA (Nepal Telecommunication Authority) banned few porn sites that are highly visited by the audience. Due to lack of proper system and technology, NTA couldn’t ban all the existing porn sites. NTA has blocked total of 45 porn sites at current scene. Among millions of porn sites, only 45 of them were prevented by the NTA.

“Government operation of banning Porn sites will be pointless because there are so many options like VPN, Proxy, and others that could unblock the sites,” said the official from one of the ISP Company.

  1. Good to know that at least 45 porn sites have been banned. But definitely it won’t cure the entire disease. There are 100% chances of people going for unbanned sites.
