SkyLink Blocks Access to Waynakh Online
Users of the Russian mobile operator and broadband wireless internet provider “SkyLink” have reported that they cannot access Waynakh Online due to a block from SkyLink.
According to the information, “SkyLink” blocks access to Waynakh Online. Users see an error message when they try to reach Waynakh Online which reads “Service is Unavailable” for Waynakh.com’s IP address. It seems that the company is using a kind of IP blocker.
“SkyLink” is a leading communications provider and the largest CDMA operator in the Russian Federation. With cooperation agreements, the company provides wireless data services in 31 regions of the Russian Federation, as well as in countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and Eastern Europe, including Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Slovakia. This means that the company reaches millions of users. The company was recently bought by Rostelecom which is a part of “OJSC Svyazinvest” (ОАО Связьинвест), Russia’s largest telecommunications holding company founded according to Order No.1297 of the Government of Russia on November 25, 1994, as a 100% state-owned company.
Recall that we have previously reported Kaspersky Lab’s access block against Waynakh Online.
To prevent the latest censorship, our users may use a proxy website such as HideMyAss. It will allow you to bypass these network restrictions from the Russian government and its criminal organizations.
