    The issue here is with AT&T using the 1.1.1.1. address as the internal IP address of some of their routers.

    No idea why anyone anywhere even began to even let the very notion of a concept of a glimmering or a thought of an idea of a suggestion of doing that made any sense whatsoever, because it doesn't.

    1.1.1.1 was never AT&T's to use in this way, however until Cloudflare fired up their DNS Servers on it, the issue wasn't noticeable.

    AT&T suggest you change your IP address to an alternative: 1.0.0.1.

    This was a very very dumb move on behalf of AT&T.

    Cloudfare is a service that some professional sites use to ensure integrity and security for their website.  It's not uncommon for someone to have the service and have the information say as such.
