Occasionally getting 'BT wholesale service information' page when browsing

Firstly, I'm new to PlusNet so I dont know if this is a regular issue or not but, today I occasionally get redirected to the below page when going to various websites...

It normally disappears after a few refreshes but is really bugging me. ADSL connection is not dropping when this occurs and I dont see anything odd in the logs of my router.
Any suggestions?
thanks

Re: Occasionally getting 'BT wholesale service information' page when browsing

I managed to reproduce it with curl, seems BT are intercepting the DNS requests, I have my network setup to use googles public DNS (8.8.8.Cool

$ curl -v hotukdeals.com
* Rebuilt URL to: hotukdeals.com/
* Hostname was NOT found in DNS cache
*  Trying 62.6.38.125...
* Connected to hotukdeals.com (62.6.38.125) port 80 (#0)

And a few seconds later all is good again...
$ curl -v hotukdeals.com

Re: Occasionally getting 'BT wholesale service information' page when browsing

I've seen this happen a few times and it tends to be either a stale session or (as you've seen) DNS. I'd therefore recommend that you try our DNS ..
Primary 212.159.13.49
Secondary 212.159.13.50
