A Tale of Intrigue & DNS: See HughesNet “blocking” my blog, now on YouTube

by Stephen Cobb on October 3, 2009

I have just uploaded my “HughesNet DNS Fail” video to YouTube but you can watch it right here. To be honest it is not my most polished video work, but I think it gets the job done. I have another one in the works that might be more effective. The plot goes like this: At times when HughesNet refuses to show me my own blog–yes, this very blog that you are reading–I can reach it via my iPhone over the AT&T Edge network. One of these days I am going to get really calm and centered and call HughesNet support with iPhone in hand and try to explain the flaw in their DNS ways one more time before I call in the sharks.

How do you like your HughesNet service?

I have the same exact problem, and it did not start until I wrote a negative blog entry about HughesNet. I can go to my blog, browse through it, and log into it. However, as soon as I enter a new post, HughesNet blocks me from accessing the blog for about 30 minutes — almost as if someone is reviewing each post before allowing me to reaccess the blog again. Now, I have to actually edit my blog from a different ISP because of it. Friends at first thought it was paranoia until I invited them over to witness it for themselves.
