Despite claims that the Indian government has banned weight transfer, a popular file sharing platform in the country, the app, which helps send heavy files up to 2GB on Monday, is working fine on Monday.
An earlier report had said that the Department of Telecommunications (DOT) had issued a May 16 order to partially ban the weight transfer of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in the country.
However, the files were being sent smoothly through weight transfer on Monday.
“We have received reports that weight transfer has been partially blocked in India. Our team is currently investigating the matter. We hope to get more details soon. In the meantime, the best site is to use VPN service to access our site,” the organization tweeted.
Launched in 2009, Wet Transfer’s premium service allows users to share 20 GB of data or folders and 1 TB of storage space.
The independent service competes against Dropbox, Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive, among others.
This service is very popular among Indians for sending heavy files, videos and other content, which is otherwise difficult to share.
Some reports have even claimed that the department “cited the national interest and the public interest as the reasons for banning waitress transfers.”
The department has not yet commented on the claim.
