Description (last modified by Cthulhu)

Following a discussion on the mailing list [1] the GoodBadISP page could do with some updating and proper arranging.

Some of the categories I have in mind to make available in the table format are as follows: Country, Company Name, ASN, Bridges Allowed, Relays Allowed, Exits Allowed, Last Updated, Correspondence.

Would "Bridges Allowed" be a redundant measure since they won't be in the public sphere?

Moritz @ Torservers already has done a fair deal of work, some is outdated or could use an update though but it's a good place to start our focus and give inspiration where needed. [2] [3] [4]

Added ISPCorrespondence page to the wiki/doc. This will be used to keep track of communications between those assisting on the project and the ISPs. This also keeps the GoodBadISP list clean and to the point with what people want to know.

@mmcc - Not sure what has happened, will discuss with Roger as I can't revert the changes made due to the spam issues. We will need a wiki admin to revert to version 402.

I reverted it just now. Enjoy.

I contacted SolarVPS about tor a while ago, I have added their response, no issues with them :). On a side note, can we get a seperate page for Bad ISPs? Might be useful in keeping the Good ISPs page clean

Would it be useful to extract a list of AS numbers (as visible e.g. on atlas.torproject.org ) with associated statistics?

Just an idea: Maybe we should add an additional column to seperate hosts from ISP's?
Because the people browsing these pages have different goals

  • Home user trying to check whether or not running a tor relay on his home connection is fine
  • Power user looking to rent a server / VPS for running tor services

I keep trying to update the page to add more detail about psychz but keep getting slammed by the spam filter. Can someone add the link to the correspondence Here to the psychz.net line in the table.

I want to help on the page under the proposed isp section. I have contacted the support and sales and see what their stands are on for alowing tor exit nodes to be used and then report my results and emails/tickets to someone who could add it to the section.

Also I orginaly had this in email form to hecthulhu <at> riseup <dot> net but my email came back to me with this error. I am using gmail, don't know if that matters any but just wanted to add that

I was wanting to know if someone could add Cincinnati Bell to the list, I contacted them and they responded postivily to the tor broswer. I wanted to see what they though of tor. I sent another email asking about hosting an exit and what their abuse policy is.

Please feel free to add them yourself, anyone can edit the wiki.

Thank you for the link what section would it go under for this isp?
good or bad

comment:25 Changed 21 months ago by teor

If they allow Tor relays or exits, put them under "good".
