My ISP appears to be blocking "Recommended Hubs" and advertisements

    The day before yesterday, I came to HubPages and realized that no ads were visible. At first, I thought the ads on my account had been disabled, but I checked other hubs and discovered I couldn't see ads on any of them, either. Additionally, nothing appears under the Recommended Hubs header on any of them either.

    Thinking it might be something wrong with my computer, I checked using my roommate's laptop and using my tablet reset to factory settings. I couldn't see ads or the Recommended Hubs section on them, either. Person of Interest suggested it might have something to do with my ISP so I went to a friend's home inside the same apartment complex where my ISP has a monopoly and confirmed that HP's ads and Recommended Hubs are not visible to people using Suite Solutions.

    I'm not expecting HP to do anything about this, but I think it is something they should be aware of, that there are ISPs blocking their ads and part of their content.
