The bsnl tracert you posted neither goes through TATA nor RCOM, but through Cable&Wireless, iinm, how so ?

Dunno :(

Did it again on the main PC, same result:



Code:
Tracing route to xmarks.com [38.127.167.4]over a maximum of 30 hops:  1

A tracert to the CW IP takes me via Airtel, strange again, given the fact that neither bsnl nor mtnl buy bandwidth from Bharti, or perhaps they've started to do so.

On 23 April, 2012, Vodafone announced an agreement to acquire Cable & Wireless Worldwide for £1.04 billion.

C&W = Vodafone?

I tried accessing Xmarks to see some previously synced bookmarks but the page shows a message "this site is blocked by department of telecom (DOT)"
This is very surprising because Xmarks is a legit website and they have nothing to do with piracy. Until today I thought only websites with pirated stuff gets blocked.

Does anybody know why?

use a proxy like www.stupidcensorship.com / ninja proxy / hidemyass.com dont know why so may block these days but in my airtel noida no site is blocked at all
no torrent / music site is blocked here

Use HOTSHOT shied best VPN software
or ultra safe or cyberghost VPN
