Hello everyone, anyone in the UK know why Virgin Media is blocking this website?

https://www.prusa3d.com

Any ideas?

Have you tried a different browser? 

Morrisons block this site on their free internet, but 'Tor' Browser  seems to get around it!

Just checked and it’s not accessible to me either without using my vpn.   Weird as there’s no reason I can see.

Works fine for me, on Virgin Broadband.

Sure it's not just slowdown due to all the home workers suddenly using their connections?

I also don't use Virgin's DNS servers.

Thank you for your responses. Guess I’ll have to go down the VPN route 😕

Quick tip. To see the most recent tagged release (final, RC, beta, alpha, etc), just check the releases page instead of going directly to the page for a specific tag:

https://github.com/prusa3d/PrusaSlicer/releases

(Not sure if I used my words right in the above. Hope it is understandable... Need more coffee...)

Thank you all for your assistance, now running Prusaslicer 2.4.4 and it's looking very good.

As for the Virgin Media issue, I disabled the parent lock and it has now allowed me to access the Prusa3D website.

I'll just have to keep a closer eye on the kid's 😉

Can you ask Virgin to add Prusa to your allowed  list.

Still happening to me 19/03/2020. I have asked Virgin Media to unblock the site, but no reply as yet. A temporary (or permanent if you wish) fix is to log in to the Virgin Media site and turn off Web Safe (on by default) while you browse prusa3d.com.

I'm with Virgin but the website linked to by OP seems to be working OK here.
