Is Punternet Causing Internet Problems?

15 posts in this topic

Is it possible that my ISP can see that I'm on a site about prostitution and disapproves?  I ask this because I seem to keep losing my internet connection whenever I'm on this or similar sites.

This begs the question whether ISPs can see what sites we go on.  Can they? 

What is meant by Topic Tags above?

Its probably just coincidence, they dont automatically cut you off if you go on certain sites, if they did it would happen to a lot of us. Who is your network provider, Im with Sky and its never happened to me x

Maybe you're right that it's just coincidence.  I'm with TalkTalk.

Oh gawd, talk talk, now you're asking for speed problems there lol.

 

Depending on what computer (pc/mac) you're using, ISP safety/child filter settings, virus software settings and bandwidth/speed etc you'll get varied speeds.

 

I've been on a mac for decades and never had a virus or malware install itself and website surfing is generally consistent. 1 week with an expensive pc laptop, and boom I was hit with 3 malware viruses install bad extentions in chrome & firefox browsers! This is why i hate PCs.

 

Not saying PN is full of spyware/malware - but if you look at other sites, or porn sites, etc you're asking for trouble on a PC.

 

Mac's are pretty resilient to it all. *touch wood*

Twice now I've had my PC infected as a result of visiting porn sites. In each case it was a 'denial of access/pay us the money to free it up' kind of threat. I have a really helpful guy who can deal with these matters but the 2nd time around even his eyebrows were raised.- and fixing things cost £60.

I now no longer go near porn on the PC. - and my keyboard is crisper as a result.LOL

I've found even legit highly regarded bought and paid for anti-virus/malware/spyware cannot get rid of a lot of sneakyPC  viruses. Only way I got rid of malware was to physically go into system level folders, which are hidden extensions folders and shreded those files, uninstall and re-install chrome/firefox. Nightmare!

 

If it helps, use firefox and install a script blocker extension, and adblockers, plus an anti-virus browser extension, then you might be ok...for a while. lol

 

Mac's don't (or very very rarely) crack.

ISPs have ''content control'' which is meant to stop underage surfers accessing sites like AW and PN, etc, and i fully approve of this!

 

 

Most ISPs handle this quite efficiently - could one of them explain how they do this to TxssMobile please?

Are you sure you are actually losing connect as sometimes i find with this site,at certain times is a bugger to load and crawls along struggling and finally failing to load.If i however switch to another site it loads fine and straight away.Try this site twenty minutes later and its fine.

How weird, I never have problems with this site. It behaves like any other.

I find the opposite, if for some reason loading a website is taking ages I check to see if its its my connection, the mac or the site I'm trying to upload by going to either google or punternet because they are guaranteed to load fast even if other sites are going slow..they are my "go to and check" sites x

How can an ISP tell who is on the laptop at any given IP address, they can't. If mum and dad go on theirs then  kid goes on theres then there is no way to distinguish who is on the porn site out of all three.
