I keep getting directed to German versions of websites!

Hi,

 

Before I go any further - yes i have checked and double checked all the language and location setting in my browser - I have also cleared the cache and cookies etc.

 

In fact I have tried multiple browsers and I keep getting the same issue - whenever I search in google (or whatever search engine) I get German result, if I go to You Tube I get directed to the German You Tube - it appears my isp is coming up as based in Berlin by Google etc yet when I search for it it states it is in London - please can you help/explain!

 

On BT Infinity 4 FTTP.

As a test, what does this page say your ISP and location are? - https://xnode.org/you

Try disconnecting from line to get a new IP address.

Comes up saying I am in Brighton - which is correct as I am about 20 miles from there. I have tried disconnecting, restarting, clearing caches etc to no avail!

 

It just started doing this a few days ago and its doing it to all the devices connected to the line so its not my computer.

 

Its really annoying!
