Google recaptcha slow, attributed to IP address on blacklist

Almost every Google Recaptcha loads very slowly (fading images, multiple screens before passing) and I understand that one reason could be that Google checks IP addresses against spam lists. And surprise - my IP address is on several IP blacklists. I have reset the router and got a new IP address - same problem - it's also blacklisted and recaptcha is very slow. (I've done all the other things like clearing cache, fresh browser etc)

Now what? Tried calling BT and no-one knows what I'm talking about -  the last call ended up with the advisor saying he would help me, and then after 5 minutes waiting, hung up. (I used to work for BT, and in the "old days" you could talk to an engineer and they were experts - now it's a disaster - no-one knows anything except how to run through a predefined checklist in the call centre.)

All ISP dynamic IP addresses are on a blacklist.

You could always use a VPN, if you don't want to pay for one just google free VPN, there are plenty out there.
