Public Torrent Tracker is Run by State-Owned ISP in Kazakhstan

As the most-used torrent trackers are about to fold, the BitTorrent ecosystem urgently requires a stable and reliable alternative, which is hard to find in the US or in Europe. However, it turned out that the situation in Asia is somewhat different: one good tracker is operated by the largest Kazakh Internet service provider, which in turn is owned by the local government.

As you know, the Internet is packed with torrent indexes and search engines offering lots of content to the users. To sort this out, the BitTorrent ecosystem needs reliable trackers, which became rarity these days. Unfortunately, earlier in 2015 OpenBitTorrent and PublicBT were down for months without a good explanation, and Demonii is expected to soon shut down.

Surprisingly enough, the largest telecoms company in Kazakhstan turned out to be running a fully functioning tracker using the well-known Opentracker software.

Kazakhtelecom, whose majority shareholder is the country’s government, surely is able to afford to run it – the telecom giant has a yearly revenue of half a billion US dollars. At the moment, the ISP already tracks over 460,000 torrents, coordinating the transfers of more than 2.5 million people all over the world. Anyone can use the torrent tracker, which supports both http and udp connections.

It’s not clear whether the ISP’s senior management is aware they have a tracker operating on the line – perhaps, it was simply configured by a torrent-friendly employee. Anyway, at the moment the tracker operates just fine. The only problem is that P2P services and torrent trackers are not allowed under the current local law, so the government may have to enforce that policy against itself.
