Two Thirds of the country is frozen...
So what? Are the electrons and photons frozen in the network cables?
Usually a cold snap means everyone is online, which maybe the other problem.
[internettrafficreport.com ] has had the US at 75% for the past week.
That's a pretty low index...it seem to get lower, and lower....too many iPhones streaming video.
Our network infrastructure is outdated already, IPv4 ready to max out in a few weeks, no solution in sight?
It's not much different than bridges that collapse when not maintained. The unbridled explosion of network devices could bring the web to it's knees fir the next few years as networks scramble to upgrade to IPv6.
In the mean time, let's just blame Google. ;^)
