Look at the percentages, not the number.
Ok, show me the percentages.
For comcast I see a peak of 103 reports. How many customers does comcast have?

Comcast Map

ATT

Cox

Time Warner


And would you look at that, all of the major population centers lose the internet and are left with information coming straight from the government!

What a precarious situation we do find ourselves, if the internet went down, people would be forced to believe what ever they are told and just like that no more leaks to be concerned with. And most certainly foreign hackers to be blamed.

They could pick whatever reality they wished for the people across the land!


They didn't "lose internet".

That's a heat map, larger red dot means more reports...not complete outage.

So what the map shows is that there are more reports of internet outages in major population centers than there are in rural areas...shocking.

Look at all of us posting...and then think about how you are posting and claiming there is widespread internet outage.

I don't want to be patronizing but why would the heat map show the difference between tens of people? I've used downdetector.com many times. It doesn't light up unless there is problems along measurable circumstances.

I don't know the units of their graphs. But I find it convenient many people in my area were left without Internet along with country wide but only 100 people.

A squirrel probably shorted a transformer.
Or maybe it's a conspiracy.

Do not worry about patronizing me. How about providing some actual evidence of mass internet outages.

Oh.

Again , control of the 13 backbone servers were handed over to the UN ? This is a foretelling of things to come.It only gets worse from here.


Giving away control of the internet to foreign groups is about as smart as letting jihadis control our nukes. It will come back to bite us in a very tangible way.

With Comcast being down in certain parts I'm not really surprised. We pay so much for breadcrumbs generally from them anyway.

Yeah. Well, that's not what happened, so...

While I like what you did there... Prove me wrong. I have faith in you. Why would any service be measured in under a hundred.

Prove me wrong.
That's not the way it works.
You made the claim. It's up to you to provide evidence.

Per downdetector.com the way it works is an aggregate of complaints on Twitter in any given fifteen minutes to create the graph.

To be honest, I think you're right. But I still find it odd my Internet is stable until tonight. In your ideas defence this may be a coincidence, but I'll still ask.

Edit: an aggregate of twitter at this time would get low numbers.

Also, alot of people don't use twitter. I don't. Many wouldn't realize outage if using a phone as that is a separate device.

While I respect your view, please excuse me from being a skeptic. Also realize I am super anti partisan, it's all poison.

No evidence?

At Two on the morning, 100 twitter complaints aggregated for every ISP in 15 minutes may be alot. You're entitled to your belief. To me this is more than a coincidence.

That being said I appreciate skepticism as that is what helps show validity.

The reader will decide.

Every ISP? Really?
100 complaints. Really? Out of how many users?
Does a dropped cell connection equate with an internet outage?

You talked about percentages. Ok. How many twitter users are there on "every ISP" in 15 minutes? Divide that by 100. What's the number you get?

Give me statistics, not anecdotes.

Why would you devide it? The graph is an aggregate of twitter complaints in fifteen minutes.

The percentage is based off of complaints, Internet vs cable (tv). Tomorrow we can compare results and establish if my claim was justified.

I'll admit if I'm wrong, pride is primal BS. But I've used the site before. Usually it doesn't light up like that.

Reports are coming in of mass Internet click bait this past week.
Coincidence. ?
People just want controversy, even if they have to make it up, otherwise not entertaining.
Please let us see this mass outage map...
