      Amazing, I am at this moment in touch with Sky Customer Service, Broadband Help Department who say they are NOT aware of any problems with connecting to ANY sites.

      Does the left hand even know what the right hand is doing?

      Here`s a new one!

      I finally got through to A Flow Manager (whatever one of those are) and after 20 mins, he told me there is an issue with some loose wires around the back!

      Good, that`s it then...... sorted!

      I'm waiting until one of the Sky agents says they're going to try turning the Internet off and then back on again to fix it.

      I doubt if more than a handful of the Sky engineers know what is going on. Loose wires round the back, that's a new fob off answer.

      No, seriously, he said it will all be fixed in the next 2 hours and they will call me back to confirm it!

      Lol, now that would definitely be a reason to switch ISP then wouldn't it? 4 or so days without complete access to the internet due to loose wires

      Hang on a minute...... "Flow Manager, let me think......"

      What flows when you flush the toilet?

      I have just been talking to OFCOM about Sky and they have told me to make a complaint to ISPA The Internet Services Providers' Association (ISPA UK)
      this is the web address
      ISPA - Complaints Procedure



      E-mail complaints about Sky to Chief Exec jeremy.darroch@bskyb.com

      Re: Are sky blocking rapidshare.com?

      Hi All,

      Just joined up here to post an interesting response to this on the ProBoards.com support forum, Sky have also blocked access to proboards and one of the moderators there has found out that proboards.com has definitely been added to the block list. They are being removed from the list so i guess the question now is how long it'll take for Sky to refresh their block list and if imagebam, rapidshare, etc. will also be unblocked or not...
