Reminds me of how for years the Nigerian mobile provider MTN would give
you free Internet (data) when you were using Tor, because you bypassed
their captive portal screen.

When they finally fixed it, we got a flood of support requests asking us
to fix our "free Internet workaround tool".

(Yes, Tor is for many things, and diversity of uses is part of why it's
strong. But no, if your adversary is your local ISP who is willing to
unplug you from the Internet, Tor isn't going to be your silver bullet.)
