A few sites show me as behind a proxy when using my Cool Ideas/Vumatel line

I cant even log in to my Afrihost account.

Is this normal? Why are we behind a proxy?

When I switch to MTN Fixed LTE, I no longer show as being behind a proxy.

Which router are you using? Is it maybe exposed as a public proxy which has now flagged your IP as such?

I have a Mikrotik, I doubt it. Been using it for years across ADSL, and various LTE's with no issues.

See if web proxy is running on your Mikrotik, but it's more than likely a firewall misconfiguration. Maybe run an online port scan on your IP to see what service might be open.

Online port scans show all stealth.
Web proxy has always been disabled on the Mikrotik as well.

Do you mean a firewall misconfiguration on my side? I'll have a look, but i'm using the standard firewall rules with no port forwarding etc.

PM me your IP, has this happened since day 1 or all of a sudden?

After some digging on various sites, i found an entry for my IP from 2018

I'm going to try to request removal/delisting of the IP, otherwise I might have to be assigned a new IP on your side.

PM'ed.

I have no idea, my service has only been up since Friday evening.
This is the first time I tried logging into Afrihost, when I saw the error.
