I did a whole lot of checking. Tor (tor.eff.org) DOES resolve from within the 
NGT network. Some DNS names resolve and other's don't when using their 
nameservers from outside (which I did).

However, NGT and Telenor DOES give false DNS replies to many sites. I've put 
all testing information regarding this here: 

It seems that there is a shared list where NGT redirects to and 
Telenor to on a given list of DNS requests. These both show 
the same page which say you're a bad person.
