Is Airtel Spying On My Browsing Habits?


I am an Airtel Broadband subscriber. A couple of weeks back, I was going through the list of outgoing connections established from my PC, when I came across this strange entry. I have attached a screenshot for more clarity.

Please look at the fifth entry. It shows that a connection has been established in between firefox and an Airtel server.

I find that every time I start firefox (or any other browser for that matter), such a connection is promptly established in between my PC and Airtel server. Very strange.

Does anyone have any ideas why they are doing it? Does it have something to do with airtel remote monitoring my browsing activities?
