AT&T blames "unintentional IP address conflict," promises to fix it.

by Jon Brodkin

AT&T has been blocking the new Cloudflare DNS service, but AT&T says
the blocking was unintentional and that it will fix the problem soon.

The blocking is affecting AT&T home Internet customers who use an AT&T
gateway. Cloudflare unveiled its DNS service on April 1, and users in
DSLReports forum threads almost immediately started complaining that
they couldn't access it. One thread began on April 1, within hours of
Cloudflare's announcement.
