Tamilnet.com unblocked again. Sort of.

Tamilnet was opened up, then blocked again and has now been opened up again via some connections on some ISPs.

Tamilnet.com has been accessible from SLT’s ADSL connections for around five or six days from the last time it was blocked. To date, you cannot access the site from Dialog’s WiMax connections. Bizarrely though, I can access the site via Dialog 3G on my Blackberry Bold.

There must be some method to this madness, but I just can’t figure it out. Also curious is that the German version of the site, which is regularly updated with content translated from the English version, was NEVER blocked from any ISP in Sri Lanka.
