Cannot log onto Deutsche Bahn Account - 503 error

Joining in

I cannot log into my Deutsche Bahn account off my Virgin Media connection

When you have completed you username and password and the captcha it redirects to

503 Service Unavailable

You can surf the without any issues and get to the login page

I can log into the app over mobile data from my phone (but not on wifi)

I have turned off web safe to see if that makes a difference (no idea how long that takes to feed through)

Anybody got any ideas why this would be blocked or anything else I can do?

I am in the UK, not using any VPN or anything

If I use my phone as a Hotspot, I can log into the account on the PC, so It does point to be a VirginMedia issue
