Question puzzle me this

Hi all,

got a bit of a puzzle on my hands and I'm hoping someone can answer it

Ok, here goes. Now UK ISP's have been ordered to block pirate bay, how come I can still access it via my mobile phone on a 3g connection and when using the house WiFi?

I use Virgin for both my broadband and my mobile so surely if it's blocked on one, it's blocked on the other or do the two use different methods of access, even when i use the WiFi for my phone in the house.

Thanks for any answers that may come my way

Ray

I take from above that your house WiFi connects to G3

Connect to The Pirate Bay ok using my ISP #####, I think June is the dead line for blocking the site.

Certainly going to be a lot of unhappy surfers when the ban comes into force, know someone who gets all of his music etc from such sites (not me).
