This is the new improved support that is not 24/7, they ditched night time support in July I think it was

Re: Trouble on the internet

it's been baffling me for hours now.  i thought it was my router because it claims it's not connected to the internet, yet i am watching videos on youtube.  i can stop faffing about now and wait for the internet to recover its composure.

Re: Trouble on the internet

the reason I joined them and got friends to was because of their then good 24 7 support, maybe time to find someone else with good 24 7 support

Yeah something somewhere has got all screwed up cos i'm suffering the same thing too.
Interestingly i couldn't even get on the plusnet forums for a while and had to use my phones 3G but then it came back and i could get on the forums without the phone so someone somewhere is doing something to something and affecting something... if that makes any sense...
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

I'm using 'Ask'. Seems to be giving better results than Bing. Can't get Google.com seems to always switch me to Google.co.uk

That sounds a bit fishy Smiley Welcome to the forums.
No problem for me getting google.com It's my search engine of choice. At the bottom of the screen it gives my location which is currently in the UK and also a link to google.co.uk

Re: Trouble on the internet

There appears to be a problem with connecting to the internet this morning. It has just been mentioned on the radio.
It seems .coms are working fine but not .co.uk which seem to have the problem.

I'm in America at the moment (Florida) and having the same problem connecting to co.uk sites, for my regular UK News catchup.

Re: Trouble on the internet

Interesting:
.gov.uk - no
.police.uk - no
.ac.uk - yes
.net.uk - no
.co.uk - no
.org.uk - no
What is different about .ac.uk ?

Definately UK
I tried BT.com which works but all the images get loaded from .uk and they fail.
Let's be careful out there !

Re: Trouble on the internet

I wonder why Plusnet hasn't said anything about this problem Undecided It seems to have been occurring for a good few hours now.
