[Connectivity] Is comcast blocking ultramegabit downloads

I was, up until a month ago, able to download from www.ultramegabit.com with no issue. Now, I receive the following

Oops! Internet Explorer could not connect to ultramegabit.com

Google Search

I have tried to download via Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox. I have asked around but every reply falls to Comcast is blocking it. Any info would be great.

works in both chrome and ie10 here.
when I say work I mean I reach the site, not the site is well designed (blown out frame on the front page) and a note saying if YOU have problems, YOU should force a reload.

I don't believe comcast is blocking www.ultramegabit.com.

I have no explanation for it then. I am not running any new software. Thanks for your reply.

If you ping the hostname does it resolve to an IP. Once you have the IP, what does a tracert look like?

Could be many issues outside if your location.

Actually I was implying the site itself is part of the problem, and maybe blocking the OP, intentionally or otherwise

While I am somewhat proficient at fixing a computer, I am a little foggy on the ping process. I know it is done at the dos prompt. I appreciate your feedback. Will google that process.

I do not believe that to be the case. I have emailed other people within the groups I belong to they are having no problem. I did a google search to see if Comcast is blocking this site and have turned up very little. Some other sites previously, but not this one.

Seeing a trace may reveal something. Are you using a router that has a MAC address cloning feature ?
