Can't access any google related site, including google.com, google.co.uk, youtube.com etc.

Wondering if it's the Sky broadband DNS servers or Google's been hacked?

Nothing wrong with google or youtube here.

Either your ISP or your computer.

That one too, router reboot time I think.

Back after reboot and all still down. Sky in their infinite wisdom will not let me specify custom DNS servers on their router.

Specified OpenDns dns servers in my internet configuration and all back.

If you can configure your PC/internet router to use the OpenDNS servers opendns.org/
208.67.222.222

This for me too this morning (Newport area). Haven't had time to look for a solution yet, so just switched to 3G usage on the mobile.

Broadband services are down in many parts of the country I have not yet found out why, except BT did a national upgrade overnight. My service disappeared at 6:30 am. At least I have my phone

My boss is getting the same thing. Just with email and google. SKY broadband, and I'm on it with no problems

Just like to point out bethere.co.uk Be Broadband is working A-OK

as is o2.
