      Issue accessing Las Vegas websites

      Just to let you know an issue has recentlly come to light in a brief where some sky broadband users may be unable to access Las Vegas websites.

      These may include:

      Las Vegas - Entertainment - Hotel - Resort - Casinos - Vacation : MGM Grand Hotel & Casino
      MGM MIRAGE - Las Vegas Hotels
      Las Vegas Hotel - Bellagio

      and other similar websites.

      This is an issue that is currently being investigated. Anyone have any feedback on what happens when trying to access these pages?

      can't see why Sky would be blocking them - I've seen sites reporting a block on Sky's IP ranges but that's it...

      saying that, I can get to them fine but also using OpenDNS...
