Has anyone else noticed the internet going up and down the past couple of weeks?
Has anyone seen any news story about it?
Doesn't matter where you try to go it is becoming iffy.

    Definitely there are some providers who are not as reliable as others.  When we are near Raleigh the service is pretty reliable and rather fast.  When we head down near the coast the service is less reliable and no where near as fast.

    Check your bandwidth: http://speedtest.net - Check with your ISP, your download speed and upload speed will depend on your local variables such as router and modem capabilities and the type of plan you're subscribed to. It could also be something as simple as a squirrel chewing through your cable line across the street.

    Run a traceroute: (Linux) just run MTR from command prompt, (Winblows) download WinMTR utility from Sourceforge. Find where your packet loss is, that's often your problem.
    It turns out when I copy the IP 4.69.214.18 and Google search, it comes up listing Level3 Communications (which is usually the problem). A quick trip here gives me more information and a means to report the outage: https://istheservicedown.com/problems/level-3-communications/map
    You can report the problem directly at the service down site, sit back, and eat nachos.

    Yes I do think the internet is the cause of many problems.

    I found the problem. And it was not my provider. Fixed.

    Uh, what language are you speaking?  What if my packet isn’t really lost, just eloped with my bandwidth?  Would that cause my frammistan to oscillate?  😏
