There is a thread at that may be related. I am on Vodafone RBI and yesterday was ok (apart from DNS issue) but today blocks with specific connections back to our company servers. They all work on Spark 4G but traceroutes for RBI stop before reaching our network. I have just tried and pings ok from Spark but no response from RBI.

We had someone on V/fone that could access all O365 except Outlook - adding to hosts file resolved it.

I've got two clients with the same issues on Vodafone 4G RBI. 


Ones in Bulls and the other in Martinborough. 


Certainly seems to be a Vodafone issue. Cannot ping even when trying to ping the IP's directly.

We've made some changes in the last hour to fix some routing issues, would appreciate it if you could feed back any observations - whether it's fixed or not.
