BBC website

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Indeed, the above. I know how to clear cache, flush DNS, etc., so that's not the problem.
And, yes, the IP address in use by OpenNet appears on 3 blacklists, but the other 60+ are OK, so I doubt whether that has to do anything with it.
A 'ping' to bbc.com returns results, it's just the web browser that doesn't. Normally that indicates a firewall problem, but even with every firewall, anti-virus and other security apps turned off, the website is still not accessible.
And mind you, I'm not the only one experiencing this problem as of today.
All people reporting problems are on OpenNet (I think). Or is anyone NOT on OpenNet experiencing access problems, too?
So, 1+1 = right, OpenNet, I think.

They have been tinkering with their connections. E.g. this website (CEO) is extremely slow as well, at times.

Traceroute? I'm there in 4 hops. Maybe you can see where it's blocked

From that it looks like a problem with resolving at OpenNet. 3&4 are it hitting what I think is OpenNets portal in PP, after that it heads to Vietnam. Still it seems like it should resolve, if belatedly, from that info. I'm far from an expert on this though.

Meant to say it shouldn't have hit 3&4 twice, once then on its merry way, so that seems like the issue.

A good way to test is to vpn somewhere with a fast connection to Vietnam, like HK, and try all your browsing from there. That way you skip through all of the Opennet fuckwittery.

It's happened again. Since 2 days now. Only the BBC website does not open, everything else being ok.
I'm using OpenNet so I presume it's related to them...
