Somewhat bizarrely I find myself unable to connect to this little known site via TalkTalk at the moment, works fine on hotspot. Anybody else?

Hi ferguson,

 

I've not seen anything at our end about this, if I can find anything out I'll let you know

Seems to be working again now, would be good if OCE can shed any light as to what happened when they pick this up.

Really odd. Wikipedia is showing as down here:

 

https://downdetector.co.uk/status/wikipedia/

 

So it shouldn't be working on data....! But I can reach pages on Wikipedia no trouble at all using Three data on my mobile (usually a pretty poor signal here, so it makes a nice change).

 

Talktalk wifi cannot find it.

Yeah, I've just spent the last half an hour trying to debug this.

 

I thought it was my PiHole blocking the site, but it wasn't the issue.

 

It seems as though DNS requests are resolving Wikipedia's servers correctly, it appears that TalkTalk is blocking port 80 access to Wikipedia's servers.

 

This isn't the kind of service I expect from Talk Talk 😞
