TorrentReactor launches new proxy service

This week an Italian court ordered all Internet suppliers to halt access to the domain names and IP-addresses of both TorrentReactor.net and Torrents.net.

Previously, courts had already arranged similar blockades against The Pirate Bay and KickassTorrents.  The TorrentReactor team is not amused by the blockade and have rapidly taken action to provide their Italian users service.

Over the past 24 hours the site’s operators have worked hard to get a proxy service operational and it eventually went live a few hours ago. The proxy site “Come.in” allows people to access TorrentReactor when it’s blocked, and it also works with the three other BitTorrent sites that are currently censored in Italy.

TorrentReactor is among the most popular torrent sites in the country. According to the Italian prosecution 600,000 locals visit TorrentReactor each month, generating 4 million page views. In total 14% of the site’s users come from Italy.
