      Yeah, it is worse at peak times, but why does it work on another NONE-Sky connection?

      I changed my DNS servers to the opendns settings and can now access the sites without issue.

      The IP address of the host server is 74.54.2.24

      Anyone else having issues with some sites??
      Funnily enough, I've just replied to another topic about the very same issue. You mentioned Site5 hosted sites and I've not been able to visit any of their sites for days and they have made a posting about this on their own support forum (which I couldn't read as I couldn't visit their site to read it!)

      Connection Issues for SKY Broadband Users
      We have been receiving quite a few reports that customers in the United Kingdom using SKY Broadband are having trouble accessing our network. We are investigating the issue further and working with our data center as well. Users on SKY may not be able to access the site5.com domain or any related services until the issue is corrected

      From what we have been able to gather so far, the problem appears to be isolated to the SKY name servers. Several customers have reported success in switching their workstation name servers over to the OpenDNS name servers. OpenDNS provides free and secure name servers for anyone to use. For more information on setting up OpenDNS on your workstation, please go here:

      https://www.opendns.com/smb/start/computer/
      I changed the DNS settings to OpenDNS as suggested and it all works fine now.

      My god I am an idiot. I purchased a new PC just before Christmas and completely forgot to change the DNS settings to the OpenDNS ones and for the last couple of Tuesday evenings I have been unable to access sites like Digital Spy and the BBC (but only after 9.30pm for some reason). This should fix the problem I hope.
