It will be your carrier. The reason operators do this is so they don't loose revenue from services like SMS and voice calls. Sometimes also due to stupidity like "anti-terrorism" laws.

NB: This is not a defence of this practice.

You have a number of options:

1. Complain and ask them if they block gtalk. They may or may not unblock it.
2. Use a service that offers a proxied IM/voip service-like fring, nimbuzz, etc.
3. Try using tor.

Hope that helps.
