Going way off topic here but interesting, IPv6 ping is lower.

Ipv4 using airtel routing again shows how poorly they do it, going from Singapore to California to Virginia, so basically trans pacific.

3. You are doing commercial activity on a home connection. Check what ACT policies are about it.
4. I do not have to make millions to pay for a USD 5 VPN.
.
#3 . so working from home is business from your POV, i bet you don't have to you office VPN to access your mail from home . Please do not tell me about policies, its nowhere mention FTP connection is chargeable. They can put a torrent cache in their network & promote piracy but block FTP connections ?

If its malpractice is malpractice, today FTP, and tomorrow SMTP, how long we as customer suffer ?


#4 i don't have money to pay for VPN, will you pay for me ?

Apart from ACT i don't have any other option, as Airtel have 512kbps upload speed, and i moved to ACT because of their upload speed so that i can upload files to work server. gigabits of binary files.

They have not intimated me before blocking my ports.

This thread went off topic and then argument unfolds... but why?

The OP hasn't come back to clarify what he meant. ACT indeed does double NAT and it affects HOSTING a FTP server from your connection. Not connecting to one. Big difference.

If you really need to host an FTP server, do it on a non standard port and have it open from ACT - ACT will give you a free private static IP with a bunch of ports open (usually its all, but they're limiting it now). Or, just pay up for a static and move on? I don't see how net neutrality is in question. It's not like they're limiting FTP connectivity to their favorite server or something.

IPv4 shortage is a big problem for ISPs like ACT who entered the game late, unlike BSNL and Airtel who are sitting in a pool of addresses.

If its malpractice is malpractice, today FTP, and tomorrow SMTP, how long we as customer suffer ?
.
Sorry, I had to quote on you on this one but, which ISPs DON'T block outgoing SMTP? Email spam is a real problem, and due to the lack of IPv4 addresses, ISPs are trying to block spammers misusing their IPs. I don't know the extent of such limitation here in India, but it's generally a big problem everywhere else.

Here is an answer for you. Take them to consumer court. And good luck. I can only suggest you alternatives. I cannot fix your problem with your ISP. Part about commercial activities on home connection is important for taking them to courts. That's why I said, check their policies.
