I don't know if anybody else has been having major problems with their internet connections today or yesterday, but I have noticed a considerable
slowdown of all of my internet services in the past 12 hours. I've called a few friends around the state (NY) and they are all noticing the same
things. I have DSL service, so I understand that it isn't the fastest thing in the world, but it should also not take an hour and a half for a 5MB
download. My friends (and most of the rest of my family) have RoadRunner or some type of cable internet service, and they are also seeing greatly
reduced speeds. With all of the DOS attacks on various companies due to Wikileaks, I'm wondering if this is just an isolated thing (more people on
during peak hours and off peak hours), or if it has something to do with that. I've been pinging my local ISP server for hours now and I'm getting
a latency of anywhere from 500ms to over 1800ms. This is highly unusual, as the server station is right down the street from me. I called them and
they wouldn't tell me either way what was going on. My friends and family that use RoadRunner/Cable internet are also noticing high latency
So what's up? Anybody else having these issues?
Peace be with you.
