Sky blocking websites?


[link to this post]
 
Does Sky broadband block Billionuploads?

I have been trying to access the site and I am being told access denied!


billionuploads.com - Access Denied

Error code 14

Request was blocked by the security rules

I tried disabling the [censored] broadband shield, switched to 18+, tried making a custom policy but that requires something to be blocked and nothing allows access.

I can access using Tor!

I am new to Sky broadband after being force migrated from Be broadband and I have a long list of problems with the service or lack of so far. This is the latest.

Be ADSL2+ Atten: 27dB to 27.5dB up, 52dB to 52.5dB down: SN Margin Profile currently 6dB.
Using SpeedTouch 546, I have a brand new one available for sale - No I don't because lightning killed the one I was using

No. Use some of the internet web site is it up checks and you will see this is not working at all.

Are we all using Sky broadband?

Blocked here too on Sky fibre. I have never enabled the broadband shield either.

Can I suggest people who have it working and not working post a trace route.

We all assume its a blocking issue, but even on users of the same ISP there are times when different routing can cause problems like this.
