      I've been having this same problem and reported it to Sky last Thursday.

      I received a call yesterday from the elusive tier-3 support - he reset my IP address a couple of times to obtain a different one but this did not rectify the problem. He flatly denied that this was a widespread problem and said he'd have to go away, do some research and speak to his colleagues and come back to me "in a few days".

      Last night I downloaded the TorPark browser for Firefox, and the anonymity this gives allowed me to access the problematic websites, but be warned this operates at such a slow speed you might feel like you're back on dial-up!

      It'd be nice if the Sky guy just acknowledged the problem was more sizeable than just me, at least I'd have appreciated the honesty rather than a cover up.

      Lets hope they get it sorted real soon.

      Amazon?

      Someone said earlier that amazon was OK - four weeks on and its the only site I can't access (so far). Anyone else with this problem (or solution).

      Are you trying to access it by following a bookmark, or just typing www.amazon.co.uk?

      Thanks to Scarey and others. My IP is actually 87.82.130.xx though. Close to
      Paulodeniro.
      I spoke to a lady on Techsupport this morning and couldn't understand much of what she said (no, she wasn't a scot). I did gather though that they don't know how long it is going to take to fix this problem (it is clearly acknowledged now) and also that they are not charging me until I get a proper broadband service. (I shall write and confrim my understanding of that!)

      Steve.
