Hello, here is a little summary about this from another user:

In a few words:

  1. Nothing can be done, since this is an agreement issue between Deutsche Telekom (The parent company of Magyar Telekom) and Cloudflare, they need to agree in something. I assume DT using this god awful peering as a basis of negotiation.

  2. This routing issue only affecting websites behind a Free plan.

It’s been going on for a week, but it’s getting annoying, because Gmail mail is now hanging, at least through the client.
