Re: Cannot connect to certain sites

Telkom has also blocked websites that I use for business.  Ebay.com, aliexpress.com, outlook.com and paypal are not working with Telkom LTE.  If I use any other service provider it connects with no issue using the same modem.  I am fuming mad as I have just migrated to a higher package for buiness and its now useless to me.  Telkom call center is unhelpful and so it Telkom.  I cannot pay for something I cannot use.

Ditto with me. Paypal and MailChimp won't let me in, but if I use my MTN data on my phone I can get through. There has also been a significant slowdown in the speed of the connection. I'm on their LTE router package.

Ditto with me. I'm on a LTE package. I can't get into Paypal or MailChimp...both of which I need for work. Speed seems to also have been affected.

Re: Cannot connect to certain sites

Me too, folks:

Examples of inaccessible sites are:

  • Telkom.co.za (including THIS page),
  • Wootware.co.za,
  • Adobe.com and related sites,
  • Ithuba (National Lottery site),
  • Others which I can't remember at this stage.

Even my present conversation is happening over a wireless hotspot from a mobile device.   This has been the cae for at least four days, and it has happened in the past as well (early December).

The Adobe lockout is particularly distressing, since I am a photographer, and rely on this connectivity to practice my art.

Very frustrating.   WHAT CAN I DO, PLEASE?

Re: Cannot connect to certain sites

PS.  I see 26 messages, but only one response from Telkom people.... 

How does this "community" system work?

I can give a case number form my issue, logged during early December: 19997041.

I receive occasional sms messages from Telkom assuring me that the case is still being investigated.   This surely should not take so long?

 

I saw a previous comment regarding the use of an independent proxy server.  How does one find one of these in the cloud?   Have to solve my  problem ASAP, even through such a "patch" solution.

Re: Cannot connect to certain sites

Hi everyone. There has been a few DNS issues experienced. Our admins are looking into it. Are there still members experiencing this problem?

 

Please private message me your IP Address, LTE number and sites having problems to.
