Is Steam getting BANNED in INDIA?
Multiple internet users from India are reporting that their ISPs have restricted access to Steam.
Its not a hearsay (and I do not go by them) but on IVG Forums and Reddit, I did read a lot of users not being able to use the Chat Option or the Steam community option. Games downloads were working for them.It's working perfectly on airtel. Please share your own experience and not hearsay.
Banning is like cutting a round wheel and making it square. Congress govt was like this first. Ban everything and fall behind in everything. Then they found out that foreign companies won't invest in India or Indian stock markets and slowly started lifting the bans. Looks like BJP will also learn everything from scratch.The Ram-Ban for all the issues is a Ban!!
It could be that companies would stop selling GPUs here completely because we are a closed market. Doubt the company will spend money and time selling stuff when their main clients are using steam or other foreign companies.at least GPU prices will go down, but that would be in vain
Jio teaming up with Nvidia to stream games?
in case of total steam ban will we be able to play already downloaded games ?

I have Tata Fiber in Pune and I can access steam store. Haven't tried with steam desktop application as I'm on my Macbook Pro right now but since the online store works the access through app should also work.So i was about to switch to Tata Fiber in Mumbai, but as per news it seems they banned steam too ?
Anyone can confirm if its working or was it just a temporary issue ?
Nothing wrong with gaming as such. At best, though not preferable, one might have game specific bans but banning steam itself is going too far.There's worse things in the market which they show a blind eye for a might be cut from the profit shares.
It sucks that the government has blindly allowed betting apps which has also consumed youth.I rarely use STEAM these days since I play exclusively Fortnite on EPIC but this government needs to get their priorities straight.
My friend called me a few days ago as he wasn't being able to access STEAM from his PC and asked me to check on mine, I use Alliance but it seems I wasn't hit with the block. Later it seems his issue was also fixed (He uses Airtel IIRC).
