Internet traffic across much of the East Coast went down on Saturday after a switch supposedly failed. From Brooklyn to Philadelphia, internet users were unable to access the internet or had extremely slow internet speeds. Was this another internet kill switch test? Much of FEMA Regions 2 & 3 were affected by this outage. Only two months ago, Google, Nasdaq, Amazon & Microsoft all went down or suffered major glitches within two weeks as shared in the video below; what are TPTB preparing for?
Internet users from Brooklyn to Philadelphia suffered slow to nonexistent service Saturday after equipment at a New York-area network hub broke down, disrupting service for several hours.
A spokesman for the Internet service provider Level 3 Communications Inc. said technicians were working quickly to fix the outage, which cascaded down to customers using Cablevision Systems Corp.’s Optimum service and Time Warner Cable Inc., among others.
