Steam down in India after multiple ISP blocks

The gaming community in India is on edge. Unexpectedly, the beloved digital game store, Steam, operated by the big player Valve Corporation, is getting fuzzy on many internet screens. It’s like a power outage that’s hit the virtual gaming world.

It all started in the state of West Bengal with a little company called Alliance Broadband Pvt. Ltd., but boy, things have gone wild from there.

A slew of internet providers have jumped on this puzzling bandwagon.

The list reads like a who’s who of Indian ISPs – Channel 3 Cable Internet from Maharashtra, GTPL from Gujarat, the previously mentioned Alliance from West Bengal (although they’ve done a U-turn), Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) from Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh, and last but not least, TATA Fiber, again from Maharashtra.

These ISPs are shutting the door on Steam and they’re not saying why. Talk about a cliffhanger. It’s left everyone scratching their heads, from hardcore gamers to casual players.

The twist in this tale comes from a certain Union Minister Rajeev Chandrasekhar.

Story Behind Steam Ban in India

On June 14th, Union Minister Rajeev Chandrasekhar dropped a bombshell – the government might ban a handful of games. The targets? Games that bet on chance, games that might be bad for us, and games that keep you hooked like a good book. Suddenly, it seems Steam might be on this hit list.

Steam is more than a game store – it’s their library, their hangout, their battlefield. And now, they can’t even step in. The thought of a total ban is a chilling one. Imagine losing all those games, all that hard-earned game money, all those fancy digital trinkets.

That’s the grim picture if this goes south.

So, what’s next? It’s a tense waiting game. The whole thing is cloaked in mystery, and that’s stirring the pot. A full-blown Steam ban would be a tectonic shift in India’s gaming world. The million-dollar question hanging in the air – will the ban hammer fall on Steam? It’s a race against the clock. The game isn’t over yet.
