Starhub blocking websites with "Poker"

Postby Froggy » Mon Jan 03, 2011 5:03 am

Hi guys,

anyone of you using Starhub experiencing the above?

I'm currently unable to go to sites like pokerstars.com, pokerlistings.com, 2p2 etc

no problems with any site , probably bcos your were accessing the sites during peak hours . It takes 1/2 hour to load a 10 minute youtube clip during peak hours ( 6 - about 11 / 12)

I finally found the problem! when i recontracted with them they gave me a "value-added" service calls smartsuft - basically its a family friendly surfing screening service and it filters out gambling and porn sites

so much for value add!

How do you solve it? I coulden enter stars today and mailed support, they said its starhub blocking it. After many exchanges, I have to enter stars through another way. And stars said if theres an update next time, i have to re install . so sick.

Hi guys
Recently I could not access Pokerstars and the error message is "unable to get latest software version from server, error code -2/-83, please contact service@pokerstars.com".

Anyone encounter such problem before?

The problem is PS also cannot solve my problem when I email to them this error message.

Hi andrewtanzx
Did you manage to solve the problem?
Actually I have tried to download from PS website a few times after uninstalling before downloading but the problem still exists.

poker itself is not an illegal word...no reason why it should get banned
