I checked with my hosting company gurus regarding the internettrafficreport.com index and they replied :
That is an unusual low index for the US as it is usually in the green so it does look like there are some issues with some network. It looks like Level3 is currently having latency issues. I can confirm that our network is currently operating without any issues. So yes, any traffic that is being routed through some of these networks that are having these issues would experience latency problems.
My server is located in Chicago, but with 7 routers OOS, I' say that erratic traffic could be expected anywhere.
I've read how this latency problem may get worse in 2011.
