There are usually excellent reasons for blocking sites on a work computer -- ocasionally they get it wrong -- for example I was once blocked from accessing a HUGE provider in the UK from FRANCE called DEMON INTERNET -- I'm not sure if this service even exists anymore -- probably sold / merged etc etc. but way back it was the cheapest and best provider in the UK -- Donkeys years ago.
The Site was blocked by the French ISP who thought it was something to do with Satanic Cults and Devil Worship -- however explaining to the Admin what the site was it then there was no problem and the site unblocked.
If you can't get access there normally is a decent reason -- most decent firms now usually also provide a Free Wireless Internet service separate from the Company's own Network where you can connect YOUR OWN computer without any restrictions.
Work provided machines are a different ball game -- remember if there is ANY ILLEGAL stuff downloaded on a work computer the company could be fined literally MILLIONS of U.S Dollars (or equiv in local currency).
If your work doesn't provide a free unrestricted Wifi service maybe you could request it.
