      The problems you guys are experiencing having nothing to do with Sky. Rapidshare block certain ISPs for a short time when their traffic is too high. You can get around this by going through SSL.

      Rapidshare blocks IP because traffic is too high? That's weird because my IP changes every time I reboot my Sky router.

      Listen, Sky limits access to certain sites. I dunno, why is this so difficult for some to comprehend?

      Is this a fanboy thing?

      Urhhhh, no they don't. It's been proven that it's a peering issue with Sky and Level3 (see other HUGE thread for information). This thread is from Januray last year!!

      I think the poster said ISPs not IPs. Anyway, as IWNTE says, this is old fare.

      Are you still here? Seriously, you randomly add input half the time to LLU customers about they're 'throttled'. Now, you're suggesting that sky limit access to websites? Have you actually got proof, mate, or is this your limited opinion?

      Re-read what was typed btw - he said ISP, not IP. Apparently it's difficult for you to comprehend English?

      I don't know about Max, I'm on connect. Sky clearly state that they limit access to some sites in their terms.

      I read his\her comment and just assumed he\she said IPs. Anyway if this were the case, if they really were blocking ISPs, then every Sky user should be blocked from accessing Rapidshare at the exact same time and for the exact same length of time but this is not what happens here.

      Edit: How does Rapidshare know what Sky package I'm on?

      Exactly, you don't know about max, so stop giving your removed opinion on it. removed. Stop repsponding to threads regarding max then. You didn't have a clue regarding max. Honestly, I love getting customers like yourself through and ripping them a new one when they realise they are in the wrong. Removed

      Yes, sites hosting child porn or racial abuse. Do you object to that?
