This morning many BTjunkie users noticed that their favorite BitTorrent site is unresponsive.
Although it’s not clear what’s causing the current downtime, it is unrelated to the recent developments in Italy.
Last week an Italian court ordered all ISPs to block subscriber access to BTjunkie, leaving hundreds of thousands of Italians with the task of finding a new torrent site.
TorrentFreak has reached out to BTjunkie’s owner to find out more about today’s issues, and we’ll update this post as soon as we get a reply.
Till then, it’s safe to assume that it’s just a technical glitch that will be solved in the coming hours.
Update 6pm GMT: BTjunkie’s owner told us that there were network issues, the site should be back for nearly everyone now.This post is from the News Bits section of TorrentFreak where we present stories from around the web in a concise summary format.
