    This one's a new error message for me from Google! And I am certainly not... All I did was open Chrome with the home page set to Google UK! And the tablet is clean and the network is a 200Mb 99p Sim card on EE, and yet it is happy to open the same web page in Opera. I only needed to log into CC on the moderator account hence the other web browser (not that I can get rid of chrome!)

    Funny I was just on YouTube and noticed I had the film Gravity, which google gave to me for free. So thought I would boot it up and watch it again. But it refused to play saying there was an error... One of the reasons I rather buy digital downloads rather than streaming services that are bound to go down when you want to use them... Grrrr!!!! Definitely not encouraged me to buy any media from YouTube.

    As far as your problem goes, Google probably is blocking you for someone on the same sub-net as you. Which is probably someone connecting from your exchange and blocking everyone there.

    Not sure what exchange I will be on tbh because I'm on a sim card connection up in Scotland. One if those 99p for 200mb jobs where it is cheaper to keep using new 99p sim cards that buy the £10 1Gb top up that is valid for the same time period! So a little hard to trace really. Anyhow it hadn't happened again so maybe it was just a glitch but I do need to reflash the rom on this tablet when I get home because I can't kill a connection to my phone that it thinks it should have, did have and no longer differs have but still gives me an error... Grrr as you say!

    Ah, then it's probably a case that someone bought a similar sim to use as an attack on some network and Google blocked the whole isp, or section of it. Most network providers well block the bad user and get Google tell unblock them in a reasonable time. Not something us users can sort.
