Internet hiccups today? You're not alone. Here's why

Quote:
If you found your Internet speed has been pathetic today and some sites wouldn't load at all, you're not alone.

Many tier-one Internet service providers (ISPs), and in turn, the last mile ISPs they support, experienced technical problems that resulted in bad service throughout the US and some parts of Canada.

According to postings in the North American Network Operators Group (NANOG) mailing list, the professional association for Internet engineering and architecture, there have been "major problems with multiple ISPs since around 4-5 AM EST."

Maybe this is why for the past week, I've been having my Verizon DSL connection die each day between 11am and noon Eastern Time.
