Founded a decade ago, Connect Communications is one of the largest ISPs in Karachi, Pakistan, offering “state of the art broadband connection” and the ultimate high speed Internet experience with download speeds up to 100Mbps. The ISP also offers to take advantage of its DoDear services like playing online games at the ISP’s game arena or downloading movies and music. Connect’s DoDear service is an interesting thing advertised on the company’s main page. It doesn’t look like an ordinary ISP service: the main page features TV shows and movies alongside software, games, videos and music.
The movies section lists released and unreleased movies and provides links to the most popular torrent clients and VLC media player. In other words, Connect Communications operates it own fully-fledged pirate website. To make things easier for pirates, DoDear even allows users to filter movies by rip quality. Software pirates can find several hundred applications on DoDear for download, all arranged with cover art for each title. DoDear also offers lots of games conveniently split into genres. Another thing that makes DoDear stand out of similar services is that the site is publicly recruiting for people to help run the portal.
Now you can understand why the US Trade Representative considers Pakistan to be a piracy problem, though the United States downgraded the threat in April, apparently due to the Government of Pakistan’s significant efforts to implement key provisions of the Intellectual Property Organization of Pakistan Act.
Pirates from all over world will be disappointed: while the portal can be freely accessed, torrent links are blocked for non-Connect Communications subscribers.
