Was this in the NYC or DC region, or elsewhere? It's not
as if there's a nationwide bandwidth shortage....
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
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
clients to the Internet so that there would be more
bandwidth. Other ISP
supposedly received the same call.
Get ready for a big outage....
