Time-Warner / Road Runner Blocking Guatemalan Web Sites

For several years, Time-Warner / Road Runner has been blocking Guatemala web sites from its users in North Carolina and West Virginia, and possibly over an even wider area. The range of addresses blocked includes the most important Guatemalan web sites such as the national newspaper, Prensa Libre, and Maya Paradise. This sort of practice is common in totalitarian states and would be expected in places like China and Myanmar, but in the United States?

If you are a Time-Warner / Road Runner cable Internet customer in West Virginia, North Carolina, or the surrounding states, you might check to see if you can reach these web sites:

Prensa Libre

Maya Paradise
