I'm visiting India, and saw that their main provider, Airtel, limits the entirety of the internet to just a small handful of websites festooned with their own advertisements, and annoying redirects.
I'm trying to come up with a simple and easy way for the Indian people to have access to freedom of speech and information.
Thus so far, I've updated the DNS records to Google's Public DNS, which allows me to ping, dnslookup, and curl websites such as "askubuntu.com" which are otherwise blocked by Airtel in India.
But if I were to go to them via a browser ( all plugins uninstalled, and with freshly reinstalled browsers ), I am still blocked from accessing the majority of the internet.
Would anyone know what I could do at this point to circumvent a DNS' hacking attempts? A VPN works fine, but I thought it would be more practical to be able to wire something independent of a 3rd party.
I'm using Windows, but am also interested in a Unix solution.
