      Sky Broadband issues with certain websites

      I seem to be having trouble accessing certain sites via sky broadband today including eBay, Facebook, Dailymail and The Sun must be a Sky issue as I can connect fine using my mobile broadband service.

      Anyone else experiencing similar issues?

      They sometimes load for me, but if they do they are very slow.

      Hotmail etc

      Re: Sky Broadband issues with certain websites

      Hi - signed up because of this - I can't get onto hotmail at all - nor facebook or ebay as mentioned above.

      Strangely, msn messenger is reporting new emails as they come in - I just can't get to hotmail.com or mail.live.com.

      Have also had problems with streaming video from bbc.co.uk, frequently getting 'service not available' messages...

      Glad it's not just me. I'm on SkyMax btw.
