As mentioned before, ViewQwest and MyReplubic offer services that allow you to watch blocked streams from Netflix, Hulu, BBC, Sky etc. As for breaking the law, I would normally think they (ISP) are the first who break them and take financial advantage by offering such products.

Apart from them, there are also DNS forwarders like SmartDNS (Overplay) or Unotelly, both have local SG IP servers for DNS usage. It is very simple to use and doesn't slow down your internet like VPN does. However if your ISP use transparent proxy (which I think all major ISP do), using DNS forwarding service can be painful.

The big three, Singtel, Starhub, and M1, do this. That is the primary reason I went with a small ISP, they don't. It's worth giving up whatever crappy bundle discount prices you have.

Either this post is just spam trying to get enough so you can send PMs, or you're a retard. Singpore's major ISPs have terrible performance. There are pretty major bandwidth throttles and high latency to anything outside of Singapore.

As he is an obvious advertiser, I'm just waiting for a misstep so I can lock him out of his account. I'm assuming both x & nak are also waiting for the same. It's coming........
