Airtel Intentionally redirecting broadband users

All those people suffering from airtel broadband's fair usage policies and their mean ways are in for yet another disappointment.
As airtel users might be knowing that when you enter a wrong url then you are redirected to advertisement filled pages of airtel, this is kind of unwanted redirection by airtel for their own profit and it is official according to this page http://airtel.in/wps/wcm/connect/Airtel.in/airtel.in/home/whats+new/change-your-dns
This might cause some problems with download programs or your searches on the web. To bypass the airtel's DNS servers you can either use openDNS or google's DNS service.

OpenDNS
preferred dns : 208.67.222.222 
alternate dns: 208.67.220.220


Google's DNS
preferred dns : 8.8.8.8
alternate dns : 8.8.4.4
