Considering they have different servers to handle the front end images and static files, and seperate clusters for the database, I don't think they'd be limiting outgoing bandwidth. Probably instead the number of calls to the database from individual users. I wonder if they re-enabled access on regional-basis even. The recovery would benefit from low-latency in that case between the users and the servers.
If they did that then people would get database errors. No database errors were recived. More likely bandwidth or maybe regional.
