    I Knew It !!!

    I've noticed lately. All sites. Not a lot, but I did notice.


    Surging Traffic Is Slowing Down Our InternetMarch 26, 2020


    WASHINGTON — In late January, as China locked down some provinces to contain the spread of the coronavirus, average internet speeds in the country slowed as people who were stuck inside went online more and clogged the networks. In Hubei Province, the epicenter of infections, mobile broadband speeds fell by more than half. In mid-February, when the virus hit Italy, Germany and Spain, internet speeds in those countries also began to deteriorate.

    And last week, as a wave of stay-at-home orders rolled out across the United States, the average time it took to download videos, emails and documents increased as broadband speeds declined 4.9 percent from the previous week, according to Ookla, a broadband speed testing service. Median download speeds dropped 38 percent in San Jose, Calif., and 24 percent in New York, according to Broadband Now, a consumer broadband research site.

    Quarantines around the world have made people more reliant on the internet to communicate, work, learn and stay entertained. But as the use of YouTube, Netflix, Zoom videoconferencing, Facebook calls and videogaming has surged to new highs, the stress on internet infrastructure is starting to show in Europe and the United States — and the traffic is probably far from its peak. “This is totally unprecedented,” said Thierry Breton, a European Union commissioner who oversees digital policy and was a chief executive of France Télécom. “We have to be proactive.”

    Fortunately, everything you see on here from Montana is sent by high speed smoke signals.

    No, the problems here are completely related to crappy servers. It has nothing to do with the Chinese virus.

    Makes sense!

    Include the kids that are banned from school who are using 'long-distance learning' via internet.

    Zoom is the app that all the groups a flocking to...

    So crazy that the stocks of Zoom Technology (not related) were frozen on the trading boards because of the confusion.

    Another very good point, coupled with all the folks who are working from home now.

    I'm not excusing the problems here, and we're moving to a better server in 2-3 weeks. I have noticed slowdowns a few times and it was on every website. I'm not lying.
