      I have a sneaky feeling those words will be haunting you for some considerable time to come.

      I don't think people are confident it will be fixed any time soon, I read it as.

      This post has a bit of history and I see it has the potential to have a lot more.

      It's incompetence at Sky (Easynet). Even Pro Boards forums are being blocked (again) today.

      Sky will fix it eventually, the pressure on them will just increase until they do. The word is spreading.

      i disagree, i cannot access rapidshare or megaupload, i can by proxy, so in some fashion i am being blocked, ok it may be a technical issue on sky's part, but regardless im still blocked, its not a problem with rapidshare or megaupload(i have contacted both)and its not a problem with anyones router or settings.

      i have also spoke to sky, and they have said "they are aware of the problem"

      this seems to be a long term issue, i am considering looking for another isp, a more reliable one,as i think many others will be , or will have already done so by now..

      Re: Are sky blocking rapidshare.com?

      Sorry can you explain this a bit further

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

      Why has rapidshare hotfile etc worked for years without problem, I have been with SKY for 2-3 years without issue now suddenly its an issue its not Rapidshare they are blaming the ISP as other ISP providers as not having this issue so why only Sky if its not their policy thats blocking these sites ?
