Today i have been trying to access a UK based company website via wifi> vodafone fibre broadband. 

The website says i appear to be not in the uk so i cannot access it.

 

I retried using cellular data and it worked fine.

Are vodafone cacheing websites offshore or something similar?

Try using https://www.iplocation.net/ who will tell you where you IP is geo-located.  If they say it is assinged to a location in the UK then Churchill must be using a rather wierd lookup list and maybe they need to know.

Alternatively, are you using any VPN service such as IPVanish as most IPs used by such companies are on block lists.
