      I wonder for how long though. It's been like this for ages really. All of a sudden it will re-appear then bang! Gone again

      Still got no reply from Sky yet as to what's going on.

      You're unlikely to get a reply from Sky, or if you do it'll be a generic 'It's not us' reply as Sky don't actually care about file sharing sites...

      Speedtest.net is only opening a settings page for me.

      I am sure Sky are employing someone to flick a switch which blocks various sites whenever they feel like it.

      Pingtest is the same.

      Another solution for RS at least is to use "https" at the front of each link instead of "http" that has been working for a few days for me. It does not seem to work with MU though

      That's good to know There is still a problem somewhere though as RS became available for me about two minutes ago but it's disappeared again now via the normal route

      Re: Are sky blocking rapidshare.com?

      can anyone confirm if this is just Skybroadband users? As Wiimii states if he has downloaded 41mb today then surely there is no block? as blocked means nothing comes through period.

      It seems to be an intermittent block.

      Re: Are sky blocking rapidshare.com?

      Could it be a problem with the routing? maybe Rapidshare won't allow it through a certain server?
