      Re: Are sky blocking rapidshare.com?

      Yep here to !! boradband with sky is slow at the best of time Iplayer is crippled at times. But I had Sky broadband and TV just for ease but the service for broadband is making me think of looking of another ISP as its so annoying waiting for loading times. But rapidshare is down again I know on other forums there are hundreds if nit thousands of unhappy users over this issue. Many talk of changing ISP to resolve, this does not do Sky much good long term, bad economic sense.

      I hope they resolve it soon !.

      This has nothing to do with being blocked. If you think your broadband is too slow, start a thread in the Help section, including your stats from the normal position and from the Test socket. You will receive some assistance.

      I also can't access megaupload, does anyone know why exactly we can't access these file hosting sites.

      Yep Rapidshare, Megaupload are down ? why are they online then off-line with Sky ISP with 12 hours of each other is it someone playing with a magic button or some other subversive reason ?

      Anyone shed some light on this rather than were working on it ??

      Thanks.

      Re: Are sky blocking rapidshare.com?

      Hotfile is working for me right now. At a time yesterday when Rapidshare and Megaupload wasn`t working.... Hotfile wasn`t either.

      Maybe we are being broken in slowly over time. Slowly getting used to the life without these sites, as opposed to it being taken away in one foul swipe.

      Well, that`s what it feels like to me though I am most probably wrong to think so!

      Re: Are sky blocking rapidshare.com?

      Joined the forum today as this really gets my back up.

      As of 5.30pm Both Rapidshare and Megaupload are still not responding, but checked using a Virgin user and they both working.

      Now I have had Sky TV since day 1 and I went over to Broadband with them a few years ago due to incompetent way BT was being run.

      I was so happy wth SKY what with the true unlimited download limit fast BB speeds and the abilitly to talk to English speaking tech help, until now, if they are blocking Rapidshare etc I will have my MAC address out of them so quicky their heads will spin.

      Didn't know Sky moved to be part of China.

      Re: Are sky blocking rapidshare.com?

      Sky are (so far as we know) not blocking any websites.

      If they were they wouldn't work one minute and then the next - They just wouldn't work permanently. The fact people have success with the https:// instead of http:// tends to show that there is no block - You wouldn't block one or the other, you would block both and by known IP address.

      There is (or what looks like) an issue with peering / transit etc
