Metfone, one of the ISPs here in Cambodia, should be ashamed of themselves. A bunch of ISPs recently blocked access to the anti-government KI-Media blog and by doing so, they also denied access to all blogs hosted on the blogspot paltform. Most of them reinstated access to blogspot soon after but not Metfone
. They are still blocking all access to blogspot and that means that Metfone subscribers in Cambodia cannot access my Kingdom of Football blog. Okay, I know that means about 2 of the 5 people that actually read it can't view it, but that's nearly 50% of my readership afterall. Anyway, a big black mark against Metfone, who actually sponsor the main football league competition here in Cambodia, even though they are owned by the Vietnamese military, apparently. Internet subscription in Cambodia is at an all-time high of 179,000 from a population of some 14 million, but there were only 30,000 in 2009. But if they are with Metfone, they are missing out big-time by not being able to read my football blog. What can I do about it? Diddly-squat as far as I know. There are ways of surfing the web through proxy sites like www.hideglobal.com I'm told but that's all I know. I am contemplating posting my football blog posts onto my main non-football blog, like the old days, but I'm concerned that will drive everyone away, leaving me with absolutely no readership whatsoever. Some people say that's the case already. I thumb my nose to those kill-joys. Anyway, boo-hoo to Metfone.
