Internet is down

Post by TJK »

Well it appears that the more people stay home the more difficulty server providers have to stay up and running!


More and more websites , as of today morning , return the HTTP 503 ERROR : Resource is busy. A little investigation reveals that the most overloaded servers are in Germany.


How’s internet on your part?

Mine has slowed down a bit. I'm trying to access three of my favorite sites since today morning ( approx. 9.30 am ) and all I'm getting is this

All three websites are hosted on different server providers. The common denominator is that the servers are all located in Germany.

In Belgium a couple of internet providers have even increased the transfer allowance (temporarily that is because the number of people who stay at home has increased drastically and some need to work from home), and at the moment I see no speed difference.

I saw that too. What came to mind for me was "Wait... aren't you network guys trying to sell us on 5G being able to transfer tons more data compared to current WiFi and 4G? Yet you're also saying that if everyone wants to use even the current available speeds, the system can't handle it?!?" 😜

Correct, I now have +- 850mbps download speed. Normally 400 Mbps

to me that says that they can still make money even if they double the speeds they offer.

Yep, the same problem again today. More servers are down. The previous days everything was OK actually.
