Telegram being blocked?

Joining in

As the title says, around 9pm last night Telegram Messenger started saying connecting and none of the chats update.

Looking at a trace route to, I hit the first VM hop and then nothing, netstat showing syn_sent but no connection made, same as my firewall.

This is on desktop and mobile devices, if I enable VPN on them it works.

Anyone else seeing this?


Tuning in

Yep, started Friday night and still ongoing. Customer support were useless and just tried to claim it was a problem with the Telegram app. Anyone know of a decent free VPN that has servers in the UK so it doesn't mess up your geo-location? Tried Proton and it works fine, but sick of seeing sites come up in Dutch...
