Why would the "Military" do this? This makes little no no sense, and seems
to be a troll. "so there would be more bandwidth" - yeah, right.

Subject: Military asking to ISPs to shut down equipment?
Has anyone received a request like the one that was I forwarded below?
We just received a call from our ISP that they were contacted by Quest
Communications who is a major National ISP who in tern was contacted by the
Military and were asked to shut down a lot of their equipment connecting
clients to the Internet so that there would be more bandwidth. Other ISP
supposedly received the same call.
Get ready for a big outage....
